Had a hankering for great Miso Ramen, but I suddenly blanked out. Does anyone have a recommendation for great Miso Ramen in L.A.?
Tonkotsu (Pork Bone) Ramen has always been the favorite here for many… I remember reading on our old board about some place in Torrance that did a great Miso Ramen, but their chef left and they closed down.
Miso ramen write up!!
I actually like the Santouka one version more than their shio.
I forgot but did Kitakata or Ikkousha have Miso Ramen? If they did, how is it?
Looks like Kitakata does have an aburi miso but Ikkousha doesn’t.
I haven’t tried the Kitakata version.
Zetton does a spicy miso tan tan mien that I think is pretty good (not “authentic” in any sense).
Looking forward to the report!
Jinya’s is my current favorite.
Mottainai was awesome until it was no longer awesome.
I don’t know if it is the best but I like Kotoya’s on SMB in WLA. Nice gyoza too.
Ramen Omae has a burnt miso ramen that is pretty good. They were closed for some time, but have reopened with a smaller selection.

Best days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Kotoya…
Kosuke’s spicy miso ramen is interesting.
Agree, Mottainai was the best when they first opened. Miss it a lot!!!
Just out of curiosity why Tuesday and Wednesday only? Least busy?
@J_L is yanking our noodle.
I think Tastu did a solid job, nothing I have tried here matches what Mottainai used to put out.
I don’t know about “best” but Chibiscus in Hollywood does a fine miso ramen, spicy and non-spicy versions available.
“Fine” is definitely the word I would use to describe it…
It’s a far cry from Mottainai though and not nearly as dank as the Jinya miso ramen.
Haven’t been to Jinya. Will have to give it a try.
I maintain that jinya is the closest approximation to the OG Mottainai. They just need that magical wok hei butter corn.
Lovely beer selection in Burbank too.
