Walk into DTLA Ramen and you’ll immediately sense things are being done a little differently here. For one, you order and pay with the hostess the minute you walk in. Secondly, the modern space is pretty much one big room with an open kitchen, so you can watch (and smell) your food as it’s being made. As for the ramen itself, it’s different because it’s better than most other places - including in nearby Little Tokyo. You’re going to want the spicy miso ramen with a soy-sauce injected egg, but if you’re not a meat person this week, their vegan ramen is also fantastic. Bonus: They serve free black and green tea for your much-needed midday pick-me-up.
