A casual new Japanese spot in Koreatown, Iki Ramen serves hand rolls and a variety of excellent ramen. Unlike a lot of places that specialize in one kind of ramen, Iki has a whole range of ramen, from the very good light, citrusy yuzu shio with chicken broth, to the dense truffle butter tonkotsu with slow-braised pork belly and sweet corn. No matter what you’re eating, start your meal with some hand rolls - the fish is super fresh, and you can get four for $13.

Hinoki & the Bird is cooler than most options in Century City, and an ideal spot for your next power lunch. Even if you won’t remember the food.

Silverlake serves some of the best ramen in town, but thanks to perpetual lines, we endorse getting it for takeout.
