Mottainai Ramen: has it gone down hill?

misterf | Jun 20, 2012 02:09 PM

I've heard great things about Mottainai Ramen in Gardena and I have been planning to give it a try.

But just recently I have been hearing that the menu has changed and that the quality has gone way down. I also see that their website (www.mottainairamen.com) is down.

Has anybody been there in the last month or so who can confirm (or deny) a severe drop in quality at Mottainai?

Thanks!

just for the record:

my favorite Ramen joints are Tsujita (for both tsukemen AND tonkotsu) and Santouka

I have recently tried Yamadaya (Westwood) and Ramen Jinya (Sawtelle).....both were solid, but neither were quite up to the standard of Tsujita or Santouka

Want to stay up to date with this post?
