new (good) ramen shop alert: RAMEN MOTTAINAI in gardena (nano-review)

rameniac | Jul 12, 201006:15 AM     11

so there's a brand new ramen shop in gardena; ramen mottainai in marukai pacific square. shops have been cropping up a-plenty lately, but this place is pretty legit. they actually do a kogashi (burnt) miso ramen. by charring the miso paste, the soup takes on this fragrant flavor. their shoyu-tonkotsu ramen is authentic as well, done in the tradition of a proper yokohama ie-kei shop. anyone interested in checking out what "ie-kei" ramen is all about can get a pretty accurate representation of the dish here. the place opened on july 1 and doesn't even have a sign up yet (it's in the southwest corner next to the udon/soba shop), but it's good enough for me to tell you to go and try it already. enjoy!
