Quick Bites: Ramen Yamadaya (Torrance, CA)

Los Angeles is littered with ramen shops. This one is becoming a favorite with their flavorful take on this aspect of Japanese cuisine.

Ramen Yamadaya is a restaurant chain with several locations in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, and San Diego. Their claim to fame is that their tonkotsu (pork) broth is cooked 20 hours to achieve flavorful perfection. But that's not all they serve - their other side dishes including their chashu bowl (first photo below) definitely showcase their attention to detail. If you're looking for a good, filling meal sub $20, this is the place to go.

The following photos were taken at the Torrance location (3118 W.182nd St. Torrance, CA 90504). I've also eaten at the Culver City location (11172 Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232) and that place is just as good. Enjoy the photos, and get yourself down there!
