The most underrated Westside ramen spot is Kotoya, the only place we’d gladly let charge us $2 for green onions and $2.50 for nori sheets. Every penny is worth it to support this tiny Palms noodle counter, which offers a top-tier tonkotsu broth that manages to be rich, flavorful, and fatty without being absolutely overwhelming. In the Before Times, piling on tableside spicy pepper and oil was essential. Now, just ask for some on the side when you place an order.
