In Search of Mabo Ramen

But not any Mabo Ramen... only Mabo Ramen like the long gone Yokohama Ramen (Gateway and Barrington) served.

Thick, spicy, and oh so good

I've tried many places, but none come even close to replicating the taste.

Anyone know of a place that serves such Mabo Ramen in the Los Angeles area?

I miss it so much!

  1. I didn't know Yokohama Ramen. The only place I know that makes such ramen is Chin Ma Ya in Little Tokyo.

    1. We like the Mabo Ramen at Foo Foo Tei in Hacienda Heights. it is worth the trip for us though Dommy's Folks live out that way. One note: We like the Curry Ramen much better mostly because the Mabo was very heavy.

      Take care

        If the Mabo was Heavy it's the kind I like. Keep 'em coming! TIA

          Another thick (heavy) version out in the same area as FFT can be found at Tamaya

          17142 Colima Rd
          Hacienda Heights, CA 91745
          (626) 581-3223

      2. Kyushu Ramen on Sherman Way west of Sepulvida in Van Nuys has very decent Mabo Ramen.

        1. Asahi Ramen on Sawtelle.

          But for ramen in general, Asahi isn't even in the top 5 within a mile radius.

            Thanks for the replies. I've tried Asahi and it was very thin without the taste I was looking for.

            I appreciate all the replies.
