My husband and kids really enjoyed the food. The pork belly bun was a favorite with my 10 year old son who is very picky. We shared the ramen with pork belly and seared albacore. The ramen is totally different from the run of the...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
