Daikokuya

$$$$
Hours:WEDNESDAY11:00AM to 2:00AM

The line at the Sawtelle Daikokuya is only slightly shorter than at the Little Tokyo original, but the good news is that it’s still worth the wait. The pork-fat infused ramen is always fantastic (because it’s pork-fat infused) and as a bonus you can pretend you’re Scarlett Johansson, thanks to the Sofia-Coppola-Tokyo-Fever-Dream aesthetic inside.
