Need Santouka/Asa Ramen/Kyochon info

When last I was in L.A., the Times article with Rameniac in it had just come out. As a result, the West L.A. Santouka was running out of shio broth by mid-afternoon. Are they still running out of the broth early? I'm focusing on the West L.A. branch only, although there's a slight chance I'll have some in Torrance during that anniversary celebration this coming weekend.

Is the wait at Asa Ramen still fairly lengthy? I'll be killing time in the area anyway and don't mind waiting a half-hour or hour before it opens if I know it's still needed to get seated once it opens.

How painful is the parking situation at the Kyochon in Koreatown? I'm trying to picture that specific area in my mind but just can't. I'll probably be going after the lunch crowd dies down on a weekday. And any opinions on what to get there as a first-timer would be appreciated.
