Tatsu Ramen, Melrose

LOS ANGELES | Tatsu Ramen is a Melrose Ramen joint by Ryu Isobe, his second after the Tatsu on Sawtelle Boulevard. The interior is modern, bright and spacious, and feels very Japanese – clean lines, communal wooden tables, stools at the open kitchen, an a feature roof which resembles origami.

Ordering your ramen is easy and high tech thanks to the use of iPads – you can choose from one of the seven different ramens on offer and customise to your hearts desire. Additions include things like extra Kurobuta pork chashu or chicken breast, a seasoned soft boiled egg and shredded seaweed.

As well as ramen, you can choose from a few sides like a pork bun, chashu rice, and the on-trend item of a few years ago, the ramen burger. For us though, the reason to come here is for the ramen. The tonkotsu (pork bone) broth is prepared over 12-14 hours and forms the base of four of the seven ramen options. Go for the customer favourite “Bold Ramen” as it’s the closest thing to traditional tonkotsu ramen. It includes 11 different ingredients including a seasoned soft-boiled egg & a choice of pork, chicken or tofu (go for the pork).

If you’re visiting from out of town and are in this part of LA, you might be tempted to join the queue of tourists at Pinks Hot Dogs. For us though, it makes a whole lot more sense to walk literally a minute around the corner to Tatsu Ramen.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
