Chibiscus is a small shop located in a strip mall on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, a few blocks west of La Brea. If you're in the neighborhood and craving a bowl of ramen, the version here hits the spot even if you have to battle a bit of gridlock to get it. There are several types of ramen: the signature tonkotsu, made with a broth simmered for some 10 hours ("filled with goodness of collagen but not fattening"); shoyu; a vegetarian ramen with vegetables and grilled tofu; spicy chicken; and spicy miso. We ordered the spicy miso, a beautiful bowl with a burnt orange broth hit with the right amount of spice, chewy noodles, lovely slices of very tender chashu and a properly soft-boiled egg. It's quite enough on its own, but you can opt to top your soup with cheese. Or, for that matter, butter, corn or fried kimchi.
