Oodles of Noodles…Chabuya Ramen (GOOD EATS LA)
I’ve always wondered why Asians love noodles?! Maybe it’s just something we grew up eating, so it’s just a staple in our diet. Any who, I love eating Ramen on cold days, and sometimes even when it’s warm outside. There’s just something soothing about a hot bowl of ramen, and something refreshing about cold noodles in the summer.
Chabuya on Sawtelle features a good selection of ramen, as well as salads, sandwiches (on the same type of bun you eat with Peking duck), and even appetizers.
My personal favorite is the Tori Ramen (aka chicken ramen), because it has a light broth that doesn’t taste all MSG’d out. The texture of the noodles are also reminiscent of the ramen they serve in Tokyo. I don’t care too much for the Classic ramen noodles they use in the regular broth, because they are too slick and less chewy.
Another favorite of mine is the pork chashu sandwich. They use the white fluffy bun (commonly served with Peking duck), then add thin slices of pork chashu, tomato, and a light sauce.
The best part about Chabuya is that they open late, so if you’re craving some ramen, head over and give Chabuya a try! Word of advice, it’s a place for ramen, so skip the appetizers. =)
