I seriously surpassed my ramen quota for the month. I can’t believe this was my third time in a week! But I felt bad for not inviting my friend Max to Kotoya for the third time, the night before, so I really wanted to make it up to him. (Just a reminder, Max recommended Kotoya to me and is a devoted Ramen Run reader.) Max and I have been to Kotoya a good number of times, so I suggested we check out some place new and met up at Tatsu Ramen in the West LA area.
Parking was quite easy as it was 11 am when the restaurant opened, so there was hardly anyone parked in their lot. I took a quick glance at everyone working there… and to my disappointment, not a single Japanese employee was to be seen!
