Ramen Restaurant

Japanese Restaurant
$$
“Located in Little Tokyo this shabu shabu joint never ceases to be crowded. Folks flock here for the freshly sliced cuts of tender red meat, a perfect ponzu sauce and a chance to learn the art of simplicity that is Japanese Shabu Shabu. You get the option of 10 pieces or 15 pieces of sliced meat and your meal comes with raw veggies to cook, noodles to boil and a bowl of steamed rice. Once the soup is present, simply toss your veggies into the pot and dip your beef into the boiling soup. Lightly dip your cooked items in the ponzu sauce and consume with rice. Only go for dinner, at lunch time they only serve curry. No cell phone use while eating per a paper sign on the wall and it’s cash only. ”

Plaza
“The Japanese Village Plaza is Little Tokyo’s most popular destination for dining, shopping and exploring. Places like Hama (sushi), Shabu Shabu House, Mikawaya (mochi) and Cafe Dulce (try the bacon donut holes and lattes!) are all located inside the village. Find unique fashion at Hob Nob or Pop Killer and stop by Sanrio for an extra does of cuteness if you have kids or am just a Hello Kitty Fan.”
