At this point, you can walk about two blocks in any direction in LA and find a solid ramen joint. But udon? Not so much. So rejoice, West Hollywood - a brand new little udon shop opened right under our noses on La Cienega, and it’s serving some fantastic thick-noodled soup. The mentai cream with red caviar is our early favorite, but don’t pass up on the traditional broth-based bowls like the niku udon with beef and onions either. The service is quick, the space is quiet and casual, and you just got your new rainy day lunch spot.

Mel’s Drive-In

Mel’s Diner is a kitschy 50s diner on the Sunset Strip with food that doesn’t even taste good when you’re drunk.
