(213) 626-4252[/white_box][/one_fourth][three_fourth_last]Mr. Ramen is Little Tokyo’s best damn secret. Here’s a common scenario: you drive down to Little Tokyo for a bowl of ramen from Daikokuya, then you arrive to find that there’s a two-hour wait, as usual. Now, we’ve professed our love for the place before, but more often than not, we find ourselves unwilling to wait that long for dinner. Here’s a tip: a few doors down is Mr. Ramen, a place that is often empty, but so goddamn good, you’ll end up wondering why you never gave it a chance in the first place. You’re probably skeptical because you believe nothing will beat the classic Daikokuya. Well, we’re here to tell you Mr. Ramen is just as good. If you count the quick service and quiet atmosphere, we could even go as far as to say it’s slightly better. It’s everything you want Daikokuya to be and more. Give it a shot. You won’t be disappointed. Also try: curry rice and gyoza.[/three_fourth_last]

Some of my favorite things are beef jerky, bacon, Benedict Cumberbatch, pistachios (aka the nut of the gods), my husband's face, and coffee.
