Rating: Solid classic
The Mitsuwa Market has some solid Japanese eats hidden away inside, including this awesome tempura place.
Santouka is considered a reference “classic” ramen joint in LA — and as a (former) rival, I was obligated to check it out.
Spicy Miso pork ramen with chasu rice side.
Spicy Miso pork ramen. Not modern in any way, but tasty and rich. Not very spicy by my standards.
I liked the chasu rice bowl, as I generally like good rice.
This is just straight up, well made, tonkotsu-based ramen. I’ve had a lot of ramen, so I’m like: shrug, nice. But for those who haven’t or those who want the classic, it’s good stuff.
