The sign went up months ago: Silver Lake Ramen, replacing Los Cobanos pupuseria on Sunset Blvd. in Silver Lake. And this past Friday the new ramen shop opened its doors.

A sample of the tonkotsu ramen today revealed a mellow, porky broth and straight, slightly firm spaghetti-like noodles. A modest serving of pork belly came on top. The bowl became a little monotonous about half way through, and would have definitely benefited from the addition of egg, garlic and bamboo shoots, which come as extras for an extra charge.
