If you’re going to open another ramen spot in this ramen-saturated city, it better be some damn good ramen. Ramen Roll in Culver City is not. From the same guy who started Umami Burger (which should give you some indication of what we’re dealing with here), this place is a ramen and hand roll concept (which should give you some indication that it’s a total mess). The menu is long and confusing (it involves doing things like “amplifying” your ramen with cheese or foie gras), the hand rolls are fine at best, and the ramen itself tastes like a bland version of your aunt’s chicken soup. Put together with a cold and corporate room, this one should be on your avoid list.
