Little Osaka, West LA, 2057 Sawtelle Blvd 90025
There are a good many days when the craving for Tsujita comes over me like a tsunami and compels me clear across the city to Little Osaka, even though I live 3 easy miles from Little Tokyo downtown. The aroma of that deep, rich tonkotsu broth, which simmers for 60 hours, wraps around me in the sweetest greeting after my hour-plus journey. When a seat finally opens up, I like to prepare my pallet with a dark green matcha tea for Ajitama tsukemen, with the ramen cooked hard and served hot, broth extra hot. This meal is pure pleasure from beginning to end.
