Shin Sen Gumi
Shin Sen Gumi's new Hakata Ramen location on Sawtelle- and one of only two Japanese places extending Little Osaka north of Santa Monica Blvd.
The menu is much like the expanded one first introduced at the Little Tokyo location a little while ago-- tons of extra toppings such as a poached egg, flavored butter, etc. plus six different types of kara age (fried chicken) and quite a few appetizers, including char shu musubi and spam musubi. And the gyoza, while still mini, aren't quite as mini as before.
Ramen is still excellent, although competition has gotten stiff these days. The customization is great as always and the char shu, while not the best, is still very, very good.
And the location means they have plenty of street parking and a nice interior. Good layout of bar, group table, and smaller tables. Quite nice!
