© Tatsu Ramen
Tatsu Ramen is advertised as “Ramen with Soul,” although it could also be called “Ramen with an iPod.” This small shop on Sawtelle Boulevard is one of two in Los Angeles and the line for a bowl of hot soup is as long as for concert tickets. While they wait, the customers have access to an iPod, which they use to place their order, pay with their credit card, and even get a receipt. It is fun to have so much freedom in designing your own bowl of noodles. You first choose tonkotsu, standard “naked ramen,” or cold dry noodles without soup, drenched in sesame oil. Then you choose your protein – pork, chicken, or tofu. Add the spiciness and garlic level, whether you want green onions, corn, seaweeds, or boiled egg, and what you get is a hot, delicious, super-fresh, fairly intense, and dark bowl of noodles. Seating inside is around the counter and there are also a few tables outside.
