With over 25 locations across North America, Jinya is a bonafide chain. But it’s a chain that we will continue to visit whenever a craving hits. The move at this modern spot is always the spicy umami miso ramen or the cha cha cha if you’re looking to get smacked in the back of the throat with a garlic bomb. Also, its Mid-Wilshire location is a great option when the Tatsu line is wrapped around the city.
