A Ramen-Ya Bites the Dust in West L.A


#1

This is the Hayatemaru at the corner of Olympic & Barrington.

It’s a bit depressing, since I actually kinda liked the food at this location. We shall see what’s next for this mini-mall space.


#2

Too bad. To be fair, I did not visit Hayatemaru too many times. When Raku was operating, I was a regular.


#3

The Offalo turned me onto it.
I should have shown it more love. The shrimp ramen was good.
Kara-age too.


#4

I went once and liked it, but not enough to make a place to go to on my regular rotation. Does any place in the strip mall do good business? I’m thinking it’s gotta at least be a feng shui thing about the location.


#5

shrimp ramen sans pork and pork broth ???

damn.

for fucking crying out loud while didn’t the offalo tell me about in that case.
