LA is most known for its warm weather year-round.  However, many never mention how cool it gets at night which makes for a perfect time to have ramen.  I started having ramen first in New York which makes perfect sense for the weather there.  While in LA, ramen seems to be best fitting for a late night when the temperature has dropped to the low 50s or even during lunch on those days when its low 60s.  I was on a quest to find the best ramen and so far, I would have to say Kai Ramen has taken 1st place in my books.  I ordered Kai’s Red which is salt based and made with skinny noodles, sliced pork belly, a flavored egg, scallions, stripped black mushrooms, dry seaweed and flavored sprouts; also garnished with red onions. If I’m feeling fancy, I make it a combo and have gyoza potstickers, a salad and a drink for an additional $5.  For the drink option, please try their homemade lemonade.  Just a warning its super sweet but it reminds me a bit of back home when I have it so I always order it with my meal.  The flavors they’ve accomplished with this ramen cannot be put into words.  The broth is beyond perfect with its hint of spiciness, the tenderness of the pork melts in your mouth and the combination of veggies is so complimenting with the pork and flavor from the broth.  I can go on and on about this place.  If you’re a ramen lover like me, give this place a try.  If you’ve never had ramen and are dying to try it, give this place a try.  Kai Ramen does not disappoint.  Check out the gallery below.
