Highlight #275: Ramen in LA

Four hours before flight, we found ourselves in Little Tokyo area of LA. Most of the restaurants lining the street we parked on where sparsely populated. But in front of Daikokuya there was already a line of shivering people trying to avoid the wind.

Naturally we had to eat there. We were smart enough to put our name down and then duck into the restaurant next door for drinks and appetizers. When we returned half hour later, we were up! The specialty here is a black ramen.

Warm and deeply savory. First bite was incredibly flavorful. After ten bites, it got a bit salty for my system, but I am somewhat sensitive to salt. The noodle here is the thin and slightly waxy kind. It provided plenty of chew.
