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.

Shin-Sen-Gumi’s Gardena location has everything from customizable ramen to a brand-new drive-through.
Ken's Ramen in Virgil Village makes some of the best paitan (chicken-based) ramen in LA. We especially like the spicy Hell version.
Suggested by our writers
Silverlake serves some of the best ramen in town, but thanks to perpetual lines, we endorse getting it for takeout.
Otafuku Noodle House
Otafuku is an excellent Japanese restaurant in Gardena that treats cold soba noodles like a science.
