Tokyo Ramen - Monterey Park
Went on a second visit prior to posting a quick review here.
1. Had the tonkatsu ramen combo with spicy scallop roll
2. Nigiri selection of tai, halibut and albacore
Feedback: For the price, unbeatable. Especially for the lunch combo. Ramen is pretty good and sushi is fresh.

2. 2 Aji's, nigiri selection of albacore and halibut
3. Chocolate Cheesecake
Feedback: Chocolate cheesecake is excellent. Again, the pricing WRT to freshness is unbeatable.
I like the fact that I can have sushi and the kid can have ramen + dessert. With all selections being above average.
Place had been open for 8 months according to the sushi chef. This might be my default lunch place if I am in the neighborhood if I don't feel like Shinshengumi.
p.s. do not expect high-end sushi dining.

Lunch combo is cost of ramen (various pricing, I think the Ox-tail and spicy miso are $1 more) and you can pick one item (out of a list..e.g., gyoza, fried rice, scallop/tuna/albacore rolls etc) for an additional $2.50.
So about $10 ($7.50+2.50). I liked the rolls selection, about 8 count if i recall correctly.
my bad..typo. I did post a pic and also posted a new thread about dinner at King Hua...but they were deleted by the mods?
The ramen was good, they used the curly noodles which i like. Broth was not too overwhelming or oil.
my only 'issue' was that they would not deep fry the Aji bones; but I think it was miscommunication -> the chef didn't speak english very well.
