No no. This is where L.A. getting a more diverse Ramen landscape is great!
Like my friend from Tokyo (who is so knowledgeable and appreciates great sushi at Mori and Shunji) can’t get enough of Ramen Jiro (so right now, Tsujita Annex’ homage with their Ramen).
Me? I can’t even finish 1/3 of that bowl. But I understand the appeal.
Same for another friend of mine who loves Shio Ramen (Salt Broth Ramen) (usually really light), where half of my friends think it’s too light.
I’m just glad we have so many legit, fantastic choices in L.A. now: Tsujita, Ikkousha, Tatsunoya, and lighter, more delicate stuff like Kitakata.
