Before "the big one", you could get several ramen varieties at Yutaro on Williams. I can't say that I've seen it on any of the mainstream japanese menus around town...but if you chatted up the nice ladies behind the cash register at Asian Gourmet Market in Kenner, you could probably find out if any area restos have "off-menu" options. AGM is a japanese grocery store.
