Besha Rodell Tonkotsu at Silver Lake Ramen


  • Sun.-Thu., 11:30 a.m.-11 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 11:30-2 a.m.
When driving past Silver Lake Ramen, you may be shocked to see a line out the door more in keeping with ramen joints on Sawtelle. But no, this is Sunset Boulevard, and yes, folks line up for ramen here, too. When the place opened, many of us said, "It's pretty good ramen ... for Silver Lake." Now we say, "Damn, this is some of the best ramen around." The bowls are exceptional, with thick slabs of chashu in a glossy, rich tonkotsu broth, spicy chili paste that packs a very nice kick and beautifully chewy noodles. Is it worth lining up for? Absolutely. - Besha Rodell
