Having just arrived in LA we were looking for something quick and easy. E.A.K. looks really unassuming from the outside and even when you walk in it looks pretty basic and simple, but the food and the service are far from basic and unassuming! My...More

Visited with a friend for lunch. Sure you can get better locally but has a chilled vibe, cheap cold beer and ok food price. Pork Bun was a little disappointing - one small bun for $5. However ginger gyoza were delicious, and more than enough!...More

Oh so hot is so good I'll never get anything else. I try to emulate it every ramen I make myself. Their house lager is a perfect companion as well.

Truly good ramen. I'm picky about this stuff and thought it was superb. Add in a great atmosphere, a funky vibe, a welcoming and friendly staff plus some top notch edamame and this was really good.

New style authentic Japanese ramen from Japan. First of its kind in the States. East meets West in the style of the ramen prepared. Tonkotsu of the West and Shoyu Chicken of the East. Our signature IEKEI style ramen is served with thick straight noodles that are specially created for us. No one has our formula and it is served with our broth that is created only after 17 hours of tender loving care. Topped off with a juicy chashu, aji-tama, and spinach. Yes, spinach. Usually it is green onions, but we use spinach to enhance the strength of our soup. We hope you enjoy our ramen.
