Used to be menya, which was fantastic, but mendoki is great, too. Highly recommend their tsukemen(spicy). The medium is 10$ and large is $11. Their serving size is extremely huge: 1 big bowl for medium 2 big bowls for large, so if you're hungry this is good! Usually no wait, and it's not too packed. Tiny little shop but worth the visit if you like chewy tsukemen.

This is place is a fantastic find! I wouldn't go so far in saying it's the best tsukemen in Southern California but it is definitely up there. The staff was was friendly and it was a cozy place. I do travel a lot to Japan and it really brought me back. Whether it was the ambience or the staging of the place it makes me feel like I'm back in Japan withvmy colleagues. No Japanese restaurant in Douthern California has made me feel like that. I recommend trying their number 1 tsukemen...read full review

This is my favorite ramen shop of all OC. I've tried many other ramen places, but this one always comes on top. The broth on both the tsukemen and the tonkotsu are rich and flavorful, the boiled eggs are seasoned to perfection and the karagee chicken is always crispy and juicy.
