Ramen in SoCal

I had an amazing trip to Japan last year - (oh my god, the food, the food!) with a fabulously food-adventurous friend, BUT the trip has absolutely ruined me as far as ramen (oh yeah and sushi) goes.

I'm talkin' the real deal - tonkotsu, chanpon, with hand-made noodles and stewy cubes of porky delight. mmmm....

I live up in Pasadena, so Daikokuya is my go-to ramen place on this side of town. But can anyone suggest any other great ramen places - I have a feeling there are some really great bowls of broth to be found in the Torrance/Gardena area (any thoughts, fellow JAs?), and I'm SO willing to drive...

and if anyone knows specifically where i can get a bowl of great chanpon, that would be fantastic - it's my mom's hometown favorite and she would just love it.
