Menya Hanabi is bringing soupless ramen to eastern Los Angeles. Their grand opening was July 28th. I recommend that you check this place out. It’s one of the few places in which it’s soul focus is soupless noodles. Perfect for a hot day in Los Angeles.
Hanabi means “fireworks” in Japanese. This means that when you bite into those bowls that you will experience a flavor explosion. It’s true. What I ordered was really flavorful.
The noodles are long, flat, and chewy. Perfect for mixing the fish powder, spicy minced pork, green onions, chives, seaweed, garlic and raw egg. You can get this with a poached egg if raw egg isn’t for you. You can also make this spicy or not.
