    Ordered the shoyu ramen. It is a well portioned bowl with nice cubed pork chops and two slices of pork. The noodles had a nice chewiness to them, they were of a thinner variety. The egg was well done with a soft yolk. Broth was good, perhaps a little more salt than I would have preferred. Otherwise, I would have finished the entire soup, still very enjoyable throughout. The best part might have been the cube pork chops. They had more fattiness to them that helped retain flavor. Vibe of the place is very nice and minimal. Barebones with some simple cloth layers in the ceiling over the lighting. It's a convenient location due to a small onsite parking area and street parking. It's not directly on Valley Blvd but that's not a bad thing with access to parking. Very much enjoyed and would come back.

    A super neat spot in Monterey Park! The exterior is nice, but I definitely love the design choice for the interior the most! My favorite was the ceiling design!

    As we walked in the girl working at the register was helpful & friendly. She offered us samples from their drink menu which definitely helped us in deciding our drinks. I noticed the menu to be pretty small which I find to be a great change of pace from usual ramen restaurants that may have too many selections to choose from on their menus. The menu is essentially curated to a small selection of 3 ramens, 1 bowl & a few sides.

    As for the food, my buddies and I ordered different things & found each of them to be really good! We were definitely satisfied by the quality of each dish. The noodles from the mazemen & shoyu ramen from both orders were amazing & flavorful. The meats from both orders were super good too!

    The curry with the pork cutlet was amazing as well! I found the curry sauce to be really good as it also had beef inside the sauce as well which I enjoyed.

    As for the drinks, the yuzu pina colada and the cucumber mint yuzunade were amazing! I personally favor the yuzu pina colada more as it has that creamy texture to like a pina colada & it wasn’t overwhelmingly sweet.

    Overall, I will say this place has a great atmosphere, neat concept, great menu & kind service. A great intimate space to eat at with friends or family!

    Liked it alot. Will return. Loved the simple menu. Wasn't overwhelmed with options and the food was tasty. Just a little on the salty side... but I'm a huge fan of savory so if you are sensitive then ye be warned. Meat was tender and juicy.

    One of the more unique Ramen stores in LA right now. Tried the cold noodles and the shoyu ramen. Let me just say, this is not your standard ramen experience so come expecting different. It's a great place and I'm glad it's open! Overall, you'll find yourself enjoying high quality noodles and an excellent meal. Come soon before it gets busy.

    Let's start with the cold noodles. The noodles themselves are cooked to perfection and the toppings are amazing. The pork was cooked to an excellent texture and perfectly seasoned. The star is the dipping sauce. It's cool, refreshing, lightly citrus-y and overall a special culinary experience. Highly recommend it if you are looking for something to cool down.

    The shoyu ramen is basically perfection. Again, the noodles cooked perfectly with the tight texture. The chashu extremely flavorful. The pork bites, the right size and texture. Well seasoned throughout leaving me wanting more of it. The egg was a well executed medium boil with a lightly runny yolk. The star, the ramen broth. This Shoyu broth is not for this who love a heavy and oily broth. This was a delicate broth with a rich flavor that coats the tongue without being overwhelming. It is light and bright but full of umami. One of the best I've had.

    The drinks are great if you like yuzu or matcha. The matcha was very simple, not too sweet. It comes with some red bean but I got it without boba. The yuzu Pina colada is super yummy and creamy. It was delicious and almost like an orange julius. The cucumber mint yuzunade is light and delicious and just the right amount of tart. Really refreshing drink.

    Next time, I'm coming back to try the mazemen and the curry!

    Seating is self-seating so come early. You pay then seat.
