Tonchin LA@Hollywood ★★

Restaurant Originally from Tokyo and NY Pre-Opening. Even though this is a ramen restaurant, there are still a selection of appetizers for you to enjoy and with different kinds of sake. My first time hearing about pairing Ramen with Sake. Love the Cucumber appetizer. Chicken Wings and Tonkotsu Ramen were also their signature dishes. Turned out great. Tried 5 bottles of sake. Kuheiji was my favorite in terms of aroma and price point. Smooth and fruity. Matcha Shaved Ice was amazing. Friendly staff. $12 valet or limited parking on side streets.
