My favorite udon place in LA. Stopped by on a busy Thursday evening. It took about a 30 minute wait for our large party to be seated. We ordered the creamy uni udon, duck udon, chicken curry udon, small tuna rice bowl, beef rice bowl...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
