Robata Jinya | Melrose/ Beverly/ Fairfax | Japanese | Restaurant
When the first Ramen Jinya opened in L.A., in a strip mall in Studio City, Angelenos went a little nuts, happy to have superior tonkotsu ramen available -- without having to drive to Gardena. Jinya's bowls of ramen, loaded with fine noodles and porky broth, seemed the Platonic ideal of ramen, and their house-made tofu, made tableside, seemed like our modern answer to flambéing crepes at table. Since then the Jinyas have multiplied, including one that serves very good skewers. —Amy Scattergood
