Kumamoto-style ramen in LA?

Just got back from Japan and an unforgettable visit to the Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum. I sampled an outrageously delicious bowl of Kumamoto-style ramen at one of the stands and would love to know from our CH ramen experts if this style is available anywhere in LA.

For those unfamiliar with Kumamoto ramen, it is similar to the milky white pork broth style of Hakata ramen, but with more subtle pork flavoring and the use of toasted/fried garlic vs. raw garlic. Char siu (roast pork), green scallions, crunchy woodear mushrooms, and bit of bean sprout are common toppings.
