Dinner @ Daikokuya in Little Tokyo


327 E 1st St, Los Angeles

I have it on good authority that Daikokuya is one of the best for ramen.  Come and join me as I confirm this.

See the menu at


Pay lot and street parking (be careful to read the signs!).


The Little Tokyo Gold Line Station is a short distance from the restaurant.

NOTE:  I WILL BE LEAVING AT ABOUT 6:30 FOR A ZOCALO PUBLIC SQUARE PRESENTATION OF "What Would Immigration Reform Mean for Los Angeles??" AT The California Endowment, 1000 N. Alameda Street in Los Angeles.

    Best ramen and fried rice in town! Key is to get there before 6pm before the crowd shows up.

    The Daikokuya Ramen was very good. The fried rice was excellent, maybe the best I have ever had!

    Too bad, I can't make it as Daikokuya is one of my favorite ramen shops.

    Ah, John, I wish I can join you. But I do believe this is one of the best in LA. Also, you go get a lot of food if you order the rice side dish that comes with the combo.

    I have never gone at that time, but it is usually a good long wait. Good luck on the event and I hope you get in on time.

    sorry to say I have a meeting that night. But I hope you will take notes at Zocalo. I would not want to miss this one.

    This is a wonderful ramen place. Good prices and you are going early enough to avoid the long waits.
