LA Weekly's Description
When the first Ramen Jinya opened in L.A., in a strip mall in Studio City, Angelenos went a little nuts, happy to have superior tonkotsu ramen available -- without having to drive to Gardena. Jinya's bowls of ramen, loaded with fine noodles and porky broth, seemed the Platonic ideal of ramen, and their house-made tofu, made tableside, seemed like our modern answer to flambéing crepes at table. Since then the Jinyas have multiplied, including one that serves very good skewers. Amy Scattergood
Tips from foursquare
Try venturing to West Hollywood for your fix of ramen and charcoal grill action at the brand-new Robata Jinya.
"When you're in the mood for miso-marinated beef tongue, or the delicate chicken meatballs called tsukune, or delicate grilled shiitakes, you're probably in the right restaurant." - Jonathan Gold
Order the "special" ramen. One of the best in LA.
A half-portion of ramen and a couple of robata skewers = great comfort food
If you want a ridiculously amazing dinner, take the chef's suggestions and order all the signature dishes - it will succeed in blowing your mind!! Best Ramen I've had to date!
