Top 10 Ramen Shops in Los Angeles

January 3, 2008 | By More


Another year has come to a close, and with it comes yet another year end list. This time it’s from Rameniac, the blogger of all things Ramen in LA. He’s compiled a list of the top 10 Ramen shops in LA. Here’s his top 3. To view the entire list and complete in the bowl ratings head on over to

1. Santouka Ramen (in the bowl rating: 24.5)

Santouka’s shio ramen rules the roost courtesy of the few Mitsuwa Marketplace food courts scattered about town. Its depth of flavor, rich, shio-tonkotsu soup, and hearty noodles are perfect.

2. Asa Ramen (in the bowl rating: 23.5)

Chef Muneyoshi Kubo’s already delectable take on kotteri shoyu ramen has been steadily improving in both nuance and flavor. With perfectly-sourced hosomen noodles and premium ingredients all around, this is the very essence of artisanal ramen.

3. Kohryu Chinese Restaurant (in the bowl rating: 21)

It’s obvious from the first slurp that Kohryu is one ramen shop which seriously cares about its product. From hanjuku half-boiled eggs to multiple noodle types (depending on your broth), this little spot in Fountain Valley is a treasure behind the Orange Curtain.

For a second opinion check out Go Ramen! and their list of of the top 48 ramen joints in LA.
