Located on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City, this tiny shop does both hot and cold appetizers (the spicy shrimp wontons are a standout) and even some temaki, but the reason you’re here is the ramen. The spicy Reddo is a standout, which is made with Japanese chili oil and sesame paste, as well as the broth-less Orenji, but please don’t ask us which one is our favorite, because it’s not possible. They’re both excellent, so just order both, plus anything else that looks good to you.
