ChristinaChristina: Best place to get ramen for cheap! I love their miso ramen (spicy miso is amazing too). The combo is awesome, my fav: ramen + rice w/ pork. Downside: CASH only.

Suzy R.Suzy Ryoo: Cash only. Spicy miso ramen with salmon roe over rice. Best, most consistent ramen in LA, this is my opinion after trying 7 other spots.

Hau T.Hau Tran: Chashu is fantastic here, the best of any ramen place I've had yet (incl Shinsengumi, Santouka, Yamadaya). I like tsukemen at Yamada-ya better though.

Justin O.Justin Ordoveza: The wait for a seat can be killer. The tsukemen is fantastic the noodles are nice and chewy and the pork is so rich and fatty. Great combo and different than your typical ramen house.
