Ramen by Omae - Sherman Oaks

This took over the previous Koraku Ramen in the strip mall with El Torito, just east of Van Nuys Blvd.

They've brightened and modernized the decor to great effect. We had their gyoza, their original tonkotsu ramen and the burnt Kogashi miso ramen.

Everything was excellent. The gyoza are stuffed chicken wings that are perfectly crisp. Their ramens are cooked 40 hours and have a great intensity of flavor. In fact, the Kogashi was soooo rich I think I might prefer the orginal.

The SFV has been ramen-blessed in the last few years and I've been fortunate to have tried them all. I'd say this is the current leader of the pack.
