LA Weekly's Description

A Japanese noodle shop in the pleasantly decaying Weller Court restaurant mall attached to the Kyoto Grand hotel downtown, Orochon Ramen is perhaps the most calculated spicy-food shrine in the Los Angeles area. The important dish at the restaurant, and the one ordered by nine out of 10 visitors, is the ramen, available in broth flavored with soy, miso or salt, garnished with whatever you decide to pay a buck or so extra for, and served in any of nine levels of spiciness, starting with Non-Spicy and Osae, then through Impact, Hyper and Extreme, and up to the hottest, Special 2: an elemental, dusty-red concoction bearing the disclaimer "Eat at Your Own Risk." If you manage to consume an entire bowl of Special 2 within 30 minutes, weird vegetables, sliced hot chiles and all, Orochon will snap a picture and post it on both its Wall of Bravery and its Web site, your small feat of conspicuous consumption chiseled into Google cache for eternity. minimum $20 for credit card purchase.

    Get things heated up and try the Spicy Ramen. Orochon Ramen has the most authentic Japanese fare in LA.

    The number 2 is pretty hot. The Special number 2 was featured on Man vs. Food and is mega hot! Yummy!

    So many choices you have to make at this Ramen shop! I opted for the Soy 6 (slightly spicy soy based broth), extra meat, and a soft-boiled egg. #nomnom
