Tsujita Annex | Los Angeles, CA | Sawtelle


there are two tsujita ramen shops crossed street from each other. Tsujita LA Artisan Noodle has a more elaborate menu and only serves ramen during lunch. tsujita annex serves only ramen throughout the day.

we only wanted ramen, so we went to Tsujita Annex.


it was super hot in LA that day, so we opted for tsukemen ‘dipping noodle’ dish. it’s great for a hot summer day because many find it more ‘refreshing’ than regular ramen. the noodles are chilled on the side then you dip them in the warm broth (NOT boiling hot) as you eat.

the broth – 60 hours slowly simmered pork bone broth with pork fat. there was even a little sweetness peaking through the rich savory broth from the seafood they used. the spicy sauce also gave much more depth and flavors to the broth.


the HANDMADE noodles were heavenly themselves. thick, chewy, so much texture to the bite. i could chew these all day all night.

pork was tender and tasty.

although this was my 2nd lunch, it was soooo good that i could slurp down 2 more bowls!

hands down, favorite bowl of noodles in 2013.
