LA Weekly's Description

The revelation at Tsujita, what separates it from every other Japanese restaurant in town, is the lunchtime ramen — specify hard-cooked — that float in soup made from chicken, fish and long-boiled kurobuta bones. The gossamer noodles act more as texture than as substance; they add little weight to the broth. Or better yet, get the tsukemen: thicker, burlier, more slippery noodles, pure chew, with the tensile strength of hand-pulled Lanzhou mian; with syrup-dense dipping sauce porkier than pork itself.

    Seriously, why do you only serve ramen for lunch? What a tease.

    Although the line for lunch is no joke here, the Tonkotsu ramen is totally worth it. I really like ramen. A lot. Love the salt, the milkiness of the broth, the feeling that you're being dehydrated from the amount of salt, thick noodles, the softness of the charsiu,the egg, everyyyyything. And this place, boy, does... More >>

    Ramen for lunch! That is all you need to know. Their Char Siu Ramen comes in what is a seemingly small bowl at first, but after indulging in the thick broth and hard noodles, you find yourself full and satisfied after. What followed was a massive food coma, but I was food happy for the rest of the day. Not a long wait if you don't mind sitting outside, also cash only.

    Although the menu doesn't have a huge selection, the food that we ordered here was tasty and of high quality. This made up for the price of the dishes, which was slightly high for the amount of food given.

    My bf ordered the Spicy Tuna Bowl and I ordered the Salmon Rice/Broth dish. Even though it was a late dinner, the sashimi still tasted fresh. The plating for the salmon dish... More >>

    "Tsukemen is hip in all the usual ways, including obscurity, a stylized consumption ritual and flavor of an intensity that can be overwhelming the first few times out" -Jonathan Gold

    Tsujita, a spinoff of a revered Tokyo ramen restaurant, is so far ahead of its competition that the others may as well not exist.

    Don't forget to add the egg when you order the Ramen or Tsukemen (lunch only). Salmon don is what you need to add to your combo!

    Best Ramen - 2012! Since opening last August it has become the most serious purveyor of Hakata tonkotsu in town, with noodle-loving crowds waiting outside the building at opening time. -Garrett Snyder

    Tsujita LA serves the best standard ramen and tsukemen in all of Los Angeles. The tsukemen might even be better than the ramen. Only available during lunch and cash only. [Eater 38 Member]
