The world revolves around beef at this casual Sunset spot. It’s the base for the super rich broth in all the ramen (except the vegan one), and features heavily on the menu of comforting dishes like stir-fried beef over rice, oxtail mazemen, and karaage (beef is used instead of traditional chicken). One bowl to hone in on is the fantastic spicy ramen, which is extra fragrant from truffle and topped with medium rare slices of beef filet (you can also tack on bone marrow if you’re feeling luxurious). The space is always filled with families and dates slurping up the thick-ish noodles and looking happy to spend an hour or two in beef-land.
