Daikokuya Ramen

Daikokuya is the Mecca for Ramen in LA.

Which means you gotta drive to Little Tokya, downtown, to get it.

It also means there’s usually a crazy long wait.

We lucked out tonight and only waited about 10 minutes.

DK only offers ONE ramen selection.

And it’s all you need, dummies. It’s ramen perfection.

Expertly seasoned broth, thick enough to hide it’s tasty secrets, swimming below. But not too rich, like gravy, where you can’t slurp spoonfuls of it inside you until your belly distends.

Noodles aren’t too thick, aren’t too thin. Leave no noodle behind, people. Eat them all. ‘Atta boy.

Pork slices appear only slightly fatty but thankfully it melts in your mouth and does not offend the tongue with rubbery resistance.

The egg is my favorite part! Eat parts of it throughout your meal and don’t gobble it down in one gulp, like a little piggy.

Apparently, my camera decided that the only thing that matters here are the green onions (yes, my camera. not me)

Tenille, double fisting soup spoons!

Usually this place is packed, the apocalypse must have come early
