Iki Ramen Modern Japanese in a Koreatown Strip Mall

An unassuming storefront inside a Koreatown strip mall, Iki Ramen, is serving some of our favorite ramen in L.A. Kaitlin loved the A5 waygu ramen, which has an incredibly rich broth, thick wavy noodles, raw onions, and perfectly cooked wagyu meat from Miyazaki. Anders loved the yuzu shio ramen, with a light and refreshing broth, pork, and thin noodles. But perhaps our favorite bites here were some of the appetizers, including a dish of sushi-grade salmon, burrata, and yuzu; crispy rice topped with tuna; a dish of raw scallops, uni, and yuzu; and one of the best takoyakis we’ve had.
