When it comes to eating on the Sunset Strip, your options are generally overpriced hotel restaurants and bacon-wrapped hot dogs from street carts. But one place that finds the middle ground is Daikokuya. One of LA’s best ramen spots, Daikokuya has expanded rapidly around town, but their quality hasn’t dropped a bit. Plus, their Sunset location is dark and intimate, with the same level of kitschiness as their original Sawtelle location. All the ramen hovers around the $12 mark.
