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?
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
