Hi all, Joan here!
Just sharing a quick post of a spot I found on a whim as I was driving home from visiting family. I’ve been eyeing some new spots out in the San Gabriel area but wanted to save them for another time. Anyway, I found a place called King of Ramen in Pasadena on my way home.
I’ve never heard of this place, nor are they on social media. But I was intrigued so I gave it a try!
Hey everyone, Joan here.
It’s been a while since Tanya had ramen in LA and I finally got to take her! We went to Ramen Hayatemaru, a place that opened about 4 months ago, in West LA.
Tanya here. I can’t really remember when I have been in LA for ramen but I was excited. It has been too long. Just to give you a heads up, you need cash!
Tanya looked happy, I looked like a trouble maker…
Joan here. Just so you know, the reason why we went up to San Francisco, other than to have a jolly ol’ time, was because of my birthday! Check out some of the cute gifts Tanya got me!
I ❤ Ramen mug and ramen keychain!!!
I’m not going to lie…. even though I’ve been trying to hide it. But I’ve had noodles 3 days in a row. And 2 days in a row last week. Not all of them were ramen!! But I’m definitely noodle’d out. With a restaurant like Noodle & Noodle down street from work, and having those Sun Noodle ramen kits at home, being noodle’d out was inevitable. Today was a cold day and I had a hankering for spicy ramen at lunch.
Gloomy day in Pasadena
“What is ramen?”
“Wait… there’s “real” ramen?”
“Wait… they’re not just the stuff in styrofoam cups?”
These are a few of the questions I’ve had to answer ever since we took on this ramen mission. Yes, there is more to ramen than the Cup Noodles and Top Ramen. The real deal is just so… much… more!
A couple days ago, Joan and I went on a ramen run in Fountain Valley and shopped a bit at Ebisu mart. We bought a couple ramen kits.
