LA’s South Bay is for ramen lovers what we imagine South Beach Miami is to people who are really into Pitbull: the absolute promised land. And though we might be pressed to name our absolute favorite, the one we frequent most often is Josui, a cozy, always-busy spot in Gardena that not only offers a variety of ramen styles, but somehow does all of them extremely well. The house ramen uses a pork, chicken, and fish stock that’s flavorful and balanced, plus there are options boosted with housemade garlic or chili oil. Also, their tofu-topped vegan shoyu is some of the best vegan ramen anywhere in LA.
