The strip of Sawtelle Boulevard between La Grange and Tennessee Avenues is a hotspot for unbelievable Asian cuisine, and Tsujita LA is no exception. The noodle house has two specialties: tsukemen and tonkotsu ramen. The former relies on a tonkotsu (pork broth) soup that's simmered for an hour before the chef adds seafood for thickness and sweetness. The latter is based on the ramen at Tanaka-Shoten, a famous eatery in Japan. In both soups, the broth is the star. It's creamy, packed with flavor, and acts more like a dipping sauce for noodles than a soup to sip around them.

Dipping Ramen Noodles
Tsujita LA is an amazing experience to have. You will have to wait in line unless you grab a seat right when they open. The kind staff and delicious tsukemen ramen is worth the long line you might come across. Noodles prepared ever so delicatly come to your table with an ever so savory broth to dip them with. Order a side of negi, Japanese green onion, it will help cure for whatever ails you.
