Perfect For:Eating At The BarLunch
Located kitty-corner from Sqirl and Melody Wine Bar, Ken’s Ramen is part of Virgil Village’s ongoing gentrification. The location also represents a homecoming for LA native Will Hu, who started Ken’s on the East Coast before moving home. The original paitan ramen leans towards the sweeter side, with all the richness typically associated with tonkotsu (even though the broth is chicken-based) and a worthwhile bet for anyone keeping kosher or halal. The spicy Hell version is even better, with their house-made chili oil bringing dimensions of both heat and added flavor.
