Okay guys, I have a confession. After moving to LA, I’ve become overly obsessed with ramen. I mean you’re thinking it’s just noodles and broth right? In actuality, they’ve gotten really fancy with this and the combinations are unmatched. You can have chicken or thinly sliced pork, flavored egg, seaweed, mushrooms, scallions, bean sprouts and even top it with cheese at some places. The add-ons are endless.
One thing I learned to appreciate about my job is the location. I know the thing in LA is to either live by your job or live where you like to hangout. I think I live in a pretty fun area but its not my best place for hangout options and although its technically close to my job since it’s within a 9-mile radius. However, here in LA that can translate to an hour commute. My job location actually gives me life in terms of the many food options I can have for lunch or after work spots. Recently, I tried Yok Ramen located in the Sherman Oaks area. For me, I’m always looking for a good broth. The veggies and add-ons are all great compliments but the broth should be flavorful with good taste and just enough spice.
I tried the Tori Tonkotsu and this entree did not disappoint. I will say I have gotten used to a flavored egg and these were just like regular soft-boiled eggs but nonetheless the ramen was great. I also tried the Hawaiian specialty fried Moa chicken as an appetizer and this was equally as good. Flaky and fluffy with just enough crunch. The Bruce Lee theme was very captivating as well.
