- Ramen YamadayaFirst to ReviewOct 19, 2013
Just off the I-405 Fwy in the Japanese neighborhood of Torrance, this strip-mall ramen shop serves up dishes of noodles in tonkotsu broth with a slab of kakuni pork belly. The roasted black garlic broth with sesame seeds was especially rich. Bargain-priced, too!

4 and 1/2 stars!! I "thought" I found the best Ramen in the South Bay, but Ramen Yamadaya topped the ones I had. I love their broth! Their ramen broth is so tasty! The saltiness is perfect. Salty enough but yet not too salty where you need to drink abundant water for the rest of the day.
We ordered the spicy ramen with the hot sauce on the side and the add ons of the combination with additional $4.80 for Gyoza or fried chicken, and fried rice.
The restaurant is in a very small one strip shopping center. It's behind burger King off of the Crenshaw Blvd. and 182nd Street. Parking is a hassle as it's only a small center and parking spaces are very limited parking spots.
Free fresh garlic!!! ~ If you're a student, show your ID to get free extra noodles.
It would been a 5 stars review but $10 for a small bowl of ramen was a bit pricey.

This is one of the best ramen places I've been to. For the price you pay, you get more toppings than some other ramen places. Other places cost extra for extra toppings, but Ramen Yamadaya already includes the basics in their ramen. Also, their soup is just right, not too salty and not too bland. The only thing is that their regular noodles are actually thinner noodles than the normal sized ramen you get everywhere else. Their large noodles are the noodles served at other ramen places. So just a heads up if you like regular ramen noodles, instead of the thin ones. I also got their side salad, which was really good. The place is very small so the wait time can be long if you go during busy hours. Parking is also very limited at this plaza, but you can street park.
