ramen time! our spot on a cold day is usually ramen jinya in studio city. we have tried orochon, shin-sen-gumi, daikokuya… the ramen at orochon and shin-sen-gumi…eh. not very flavorful. to be honest, we also like daikokuya but dont get the craze. plus, we arent fans of waiting an hour to get seated either. the broth at jinya is fantastic. perfected seasoned, noodles cooked perfectly.
the large menu outside
tonkotsu spicy, hot and with thin noodles. this is my favorite thing to get here…and probably the best ramen i have had. “hot” isn’t too spicy for me. kyle usually adds some chili to it. we have tried the original but like the flavor of spicy more.
jinya tonkotsu black. completely different flavor than the spicy tonkotsu. very strong flavor. kyle really likes this one.
a spoonful of amazing! in our books, jinya gets five out of five stars.
