No bad...but too salty

A Japanese friend of mine highly recommended this place when I visited LA. I had the ramen with miso base and pork combo with rice topped with fish eggs. It seemed very greasy at first, but the soup was full of flavor. Perhaps I should have left the soup alone and just eat the noodle. My buddy orded the same noodle but with roasted pork on rice. Needless to say we finished our meal feeling very satisfied initially. It did not take long before I began craving for water. The soup was simply too salty and anyone with high blood pressure should be careful. I had to continue drinking water for the entire night! I will have to ask if there is MSG in the soup next time I go there.

Recently I visited Daikokuya in downtown LA and what a difference. There wasn’t too much to choose from but it was much better. (The one in Costa Mesa was bit of let down though.)

Best Ramen place in the Westside!

This place is in the food court inside the Japanese market Mitsuwa.

OK, so i’ve tried Ramenya and Ashai Ramen, and they don’t compare. Santouka is soo much better. This place has Salt, Miso, and Soy Sauce soup base which gives such a variety in taste. It is very authentic ramen as if your japanese friend’s grandma made it.

#32 Regular Size Soy Sauce Ramen Combo

This dish gives you a good filling meal with the classic soy sauce ramen.

Favorite ramen on the West side.

Santouka is where I go when I’m craving ramen— although that wasn’t always the case. The first time I ate here (also on the recommendation of a Japanese friend), I was turned off by the heaviness of the broth although the noodles were delicious. But a few more visits and I was hooked! Now accustomed to the fuller, richer, heavier broth that is Santouka, I’m a big fan of their ramen. They do offer a wide variety of broths and toppings as well as rice bowls to combo your ramen bowl, that sometimes it’s difficult to decide what to get. It does get crowded during dinner time on the weekend, but we find that if we go early enough we can beat the crowd and not have to wait too long or hunt for seats. Another plus is that there’s a little bakery/coffee shop in the food court that serves soft serve green tea or vanilla ice cream that’s always a pleasant way to end the meal!
