The Tsujita crew continues their quest to take over all of Sawtelle Blvd. with the opening of yet another spot on the street. Killer Noodle specializes in tantanmen, the Japanese version of dan dan noodles, so this is no place to bring that one friend who can’t handle mild Tostitos salsa. Once you conquer the wait (expect at least half an hour at peak eating hours), there are three types of tantanmen to choose from, at six different levels of spice. The menu has a list of “7 Fundamentals” including not to order a level five or six if it’s your first visit, and a request to “Please take care of your bottoms when you complete your meal.” The noodle bowls themselves are fantastic, especially the sesame-based Tokyo style, with a broth isn’t overpowered by spice (at least if you go for their recommended first-time level three).
