LA Weekly's Description

Yamadaya, a new ramen shop not far from Tito's Tacos in Culver City, takes porkiness to a new extreme, a tongue-coating, brain-penetrating pig plasma that comes at you as if shot from an umami gun set to stun. You don't just eat Yamadaya ramen, you wear it like a straitjacket. You're not going anywhere until you're done. The room is long and bare; the noodle-sotted customers have the distinct, hollow-eyed look of screenwriters and grad students. One sees the occasional order of the kare-age fried chicken, which is OK in a bento-box kind of way, but that's taking the coward's way out. The one permissible variation is tsukemen, thick chewy noodles served by themselves, with a superfunky dipping sauce - basically the tonkotsu broth boiled down to a fish-laced syrup - on the side.

Tips from foursquare

    Pro tip: ask for garlic. They will give you fresh peeled garlic with a garlic presser. The garlic makes the broth even better!

    The Yamadaya Ramen is the way to go... two kinds of delicious pork!

    Mmm pork bones.

    Get the curry bowl combo and forego eating the rest of the day
