the good ole' standby: ramenya (ramen review)

rameniac | Dec 19, 2006 06:03 PM

as i eat my way through L.A.'s ramen shops, i've finally made it to ramenya in west L.A. this place has a lot of history for me, and over the years i've loved it, grown ambivalent about it, and lately, found an appreciation for it yet again. (too much thick broth ramen occasionally makes me turn to the lighter, "healthier" stuff i guess haha). ramenya has one of the few shoyu broth ramens in town that is actually somewhat flavorful, although i've been there on occasions when it was as bad as can be. their noodles have always been consistent, though, which is a good thing. their ajo ramen is also pretty good, though that's about it. one thing that's always irritated me is their cash only policy, anyone know if they've changed that yet? ramenya gets a 16 out of 30; by local standards that's pretty good. here are the pics and details...
