Now this...is a ramen place! What can I say, this place is just awesome! My sister took me here for lunch, and loved the place! The broth had a really nice flavor to it, and it had that wow factor in it, like you can really tell that it was made from scratch. And meat portions were really large and filling. Would love to come back here again very soon!Recommended for:Foodies

How do you beat a big bowl of ramen with generous portions of TWO different meats and a yummy soft-boiled egg? During a lunch break, I wandered over to Men-Oh. I was greeted by a guy, who I think is the manager although I didn't get his name, and he continued to chat with me as I ate at the counter. It was an easy decision to try Men-Oh's specialty, the Tokushima Ramen, and I also asked for the additional topping of kikurage, the cloud ear mushrooms. While I waited for my food, I learned the characteristics of Tokushima ramen: a broth hybrid of simmered pork bone broth (tonkotsu) and soy sauce broth (shoyu); a thicker, almost chow mein-kind of noodle; two kinds of pork, char siu and pork belly; and a raw egg. One thing to note: the DTLA location only offers the marinated soft-boiled egg until they can find a local supplier of organic, pasteurized eggs that they can serve raw. Way to go with the quality control and high standards, guys! In any case, I really liked the cooked egg and the rest of my meal. The broth is more delicate than others I have tried, but the char siu is what really blew me away. It melts in your mouth like pork butter! I found the price to be pretty reasonable as well. The other great thing? No ridiculously long line! Lines are especially annoying when the food is way overrated (*cough* Daikokuya *cough*). The service and food at Men-Oh are excellent. I will be back for more noodles!

A small ramen shop in downtown LA's Little Tokyo, it might not be as well known as some of the other ramen places in this area, but it's a solid contender. Noodles were curly and had a nice chew, broth was nice and porky. Good chasu, nicely runny yolk cooked egg (although, only half an egg not a full one).
