We love Silver Lake Ramen just as much as you do, but here’s the great news - they have a second location in Highland Park with an almost identical menu and no hour long waits to get a seat. That means you can get the same fantastic tonkotsu ramen before you spiral into a hungry tornado of death. Don’t sleep on their rice bowls either - the salmon poke is the freshest fish in the neighborhood.
