Men Oh Tokushima ramen - Little Tokyo

Perhaps, this ramen place may be the best ramen place in Little Tokyo. My recent trip to Shinsengumi was very disappointed. Also I don't think Daikokuya, Koraku or Orochon is that good.
Unfortunately, I wasn't hungry at all so I was hoping that they're gonna have half portion ramen on the menu but they didn't. So I ordered small Tokushima don. I also tasted my friend's ramen. Everything I ate here were very good.


Tokushima don (S) $2.50
Stir fried pork belly, simmered pork, seasoned bamboo shoots, shredded nori seaweed, and green onions over rice. It was tastier than I expected. It was too fatty for me but still, I enjoyed it.

Gyoza $4.50

Tonkotsu ramen $7.95
chashu,menma, onions, kikurage, (egg), seaweed. Tonkotsu soup didn't have any meaty smell or flavor like Shinsengumi. The noodle was  thin noodles and it was cooked al dente.

Shoyu ramen $7.95
chashu,menma, onions, boiled spinach, egg, seaweed

vanilla, spicy chocolate sauce, whipped cream

Cococup $5

I tasted and it was really curry flavor. Interesting..

Salty Pimp $5
vanilla, dulce de leche + sea salt, dipped in chocolate

There was a hair in my salty pimp ice cream so I had to ask them to make new one for me. When I told them, they said "It happens". Um.. sure, It happens sometimes, but they should be more careful and should apologize at least. Well, my chocolate covered vanilla soft serve was delicious.

I wanted to come here since they opened but I never had a chance to visit because of the location. But I finally made it. This place is open until 5pm but when I got here around 3:30pm, most pastries were gone. They said most pastries sell out around noon. Well, I hope I can go back again sometime in the morning.

chocolate croissant, almond croissant, brioche and palmier were the only pastries left.

Big Gay Ice Cream Truck Pop Up in Los Angeles

Yes, they are here in Los Angeles for 4 days only, until Oct. 27. I had to try it. There were about 5 people in front of me, waited about 5-10 minutes. Not bad. I already new what I wanted to try. I wanted to eat Fig + olive oil sundae and cococone. But I didn't have enough cash with me, also I thought it's too much to eat two ice cream before my core class at the gym. So I got sundae. I'm hoping to catch the truck by the end of the week so I can try cococone too. My sundae was $6, not cheap. But who cares? They are only here for 4 days. So if you are in L.A., check their website for the truck schedule.


Fig + olive oil sundae $6
vanilla, olive oil, fig sauce.

I thought they're gonna swirl some fig sauce and olive oil, but this is what I got. It was like soft serve soaked in olive oil. I liked soft serve and fig sauce, but it was way too much olive oil for me. I wish they warned me. That was the only disappointment.
