Adventures in Little Osaka

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!

A Beautiful Day in Santa Monica

I finally made it to Tsujita in West LA yesterday! Tsujita is famous for their 60-hour broth and they only serve ramen during their lunch hours from 11 am to 2 pm. I met up with my cousin, Michelle, and friend, Max, at Tsujita around 1 pm. There was a long line of customers but we waited for only 20 minutes or so and managed to get a table inside.

We started off with some Kirin beers. Max and I ordered their Char Siu Ramen, (which is their tonkotsu ramen with extra slices of barbequed pork,) and Ajitama (seasoned boiled egg) and Michelle ordered the Char Siu Tsukemen with extra green onions.

I Heart LA

This stupid thing would not let me make a heart icon at the title! Ughhh… ❤ ❤ ❤

Hey everyone!

I went to Kotoya Ramen in West LA again two nights ago after work. I really enjoyed the ramen there last week and since I was staying in the area, I thought I’d go back!

My cousin, Michelle, (who I stay with when working in LA) joined me again for this ramen run. We had a different server this time and she was great! I should have asked for her name. 

We ordered some sides and they were quite good. The chicken was nice but the gyozas were very delicious and juicy inside!
