Ramen Reimagined: Daikokuya in Los Angeles

April 22, 2015 12:03 pm

A popular Little Tokyo ramen shop, Daikokuya is known for its delicious, hearty Japanese dishes—and its ever-present line, composed of its many local fans. Make sure your entire party is present when you put your name down for a table, and kill the hour-plus wait time by taking a stroll through the neighborhood.

Regulars strongly recommend the gyoza, the spicy miso ramen, and the daikoku ramen. Don’t be afraid to order the rich, hearty kotteri broth. The noodles here are said to be perfectly cooked, and the broth is flavorful and filling. Have your noodles prepared the way you like them and add additional toppings, such as bean sprouts, egg, nori, and chashu pork. If you don’t like ramen or just want something different, try the salmon sashimi bowl, the beef bowl, the teriyaki eel bowl, or the shredded pork bowl.

Parking nearby can be hard to find, but the quick service makes up for any extra time spent in the car.

Sweet and Savory Collide in the Bacon Doughnut at Cafe Dulce

April 8, 2015 12:03 pm

Little Tokyo’s Cafe Dulce is best known for its quality coffee drinks made with hand-harvested green coffee beans, but its fresh and creative doughnuts also delight its regular patrons. Cafe Dulce serves baguette sandwiches and salads for customers in the mood for something more substantial, too. Regulars appreciate the baristas here, who are as knowledgeable about the coffees as they are skilled at brewing them. Order any kind of java drink that you desire and pair it with a Fruity Pebble doughnut, a bacon doughnut, a strawberries n’ cream doughnut, or a Hello Kitty doughnut.

Feeling like a sandwich or salad? Try the spicy Korean cheesesteak, the apple tuna, the jambon de Paris, the Caprese, or a fruit salad. It should be noted, however, that most regulars come here strictly for the baked goods and coffee. No matter what you decide to order, you're welcome to enjoy the ample outdoor seating.
