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.
It's rare, but sometimes the planets align and your chakras are glowing (or whatever), and your boss steps out of her office and asks you where you'd like to go eat for lunch. Maybe she really screwed... More »
The noodle craze that's been sweeping through Japan for the last decade has centered around tsukemen, a chewy mound of noodles served with a hyper-rich dipping broth, fortified with pork bone and bonito until it's as thick as motor oil. When... More »

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 this place make the cut.
Honestly, I can't tell you anything else about the other items in their menu because a bowl of tonkotsu ramen is my staple. So fat and so rich, I can't really explain it any other way you guys.I normally don't like using other restuaraunts to describe other food joints, but think Santouka meets Daikokuya. But a bigger $$tag. I know people go nuts for their Tsukemen ramen though, (where you get your noodles on the side and you dip in into the broth) for $10.
Love the options of outdoor and indoor seating, and parking isn't too bad if you can fight for street parking in the side streets. Great trendy decor and set-up. Friendly service. Ramen-lovers, unite.
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 also looked nice.
Service was great. The waitresses were all friendly and checked on us often. The food came out fairly fast.
I wouldn't be able to come back often for dinner because I'd have to spend quite a bit to get a full meal. But I would definitely like to come back again during lunch to try out the ramen!
Since opening last August, Little Osaka's Tsujita L.A. has quickly become the most serious purveyor of Hakata tonkotsu in town, a fact validated by the noodle-loving crowds waiting outside the building around opening time. Though it serves its ramen only during an abbreviated lunch hour -- out of concern that the dish's popularity would overshadow the dinnertime kaiseki menu -- the lengthy wait list for a table can rival something out of the UCLA admissions department.
