May 26, 2015 - Slurping. The perfect onomatopoeia for the general ambient sounds coming out of Daikokuya. It's a famous, but unassuming hole-in-the-wall on 1st street in Little Tokyo. For decades, Dai...view morekokuya has been crafting the perfect broth for their ramen. Their Tonkotsu, a rich, buttery broth made from pork marrow bones and pork fat cooked down for hours, is done just right....

This Facebook page is for all Daikokuya Ramen locations.. even though the address shows the Little Tokyo Los Angeles address & phone number.

Downgraded to a 'C' by the health department

The food was good in the past, but I won't be back until they get a better grade.

16 Ways to Beat the Heat This Memorial Day Weekend

Summer unofficially begins this weekend on Memorial Day. While the urge to heat up the backyard grill may be strong, another heat wave is headed our way. Consider cooling off while out and about with an Italian ice, root beer float, bowl of cold noodles, or rooftop cocktail instead. Here are 16 ways to beat the heat in LA this weekend.

"Warm, bouncy noodles" and "rich", "flavorful broth" "make all the difference" for the "superior ramen" at this affordable chainlet of Japanese "greasy spoons"; there's "minimal service, little capacity and long lines", but "is it worth it? – absolutely."

I really enjoyed this place. Reasonably priced. Great service and really friendly too. Would recommend the gyoza, ramen and chashu-don. One word of advice - get there early. There is usually a waiting list which you will need to put your name on. Can always...

Spicy miso ramen

Daikokuya is one of my top ramen places on Sawtelle. The spicy miso ramen is my go to dish. The broth can sometimes be a little too heavy, but usually just fatty and tasty. It is definitely mild spicy but there is chili powder readily...

Tips about this business (4)

Where to Sit

Although it's lucky enough to get any seat, try to avoid the counter right next to the grill--the fumes can get gross and irritating.

The Extras

On Sundays, the restaurant is open only until their soup is gone, so come early in the day.

When to Go

If possible, come at least 10 minutes prior to lunch at around 11:30am to jot your name on the waitlist, so you can be guaranteed a seat.

Know Before You Go

The menu, mostly dishes paired with a type of meat, is not vegetarian-friendly.
