This article is actually one that I meant to post months ago, but lost it in the drafts. I had just moved to Torrance (Thus the amount of restaurant reviews for Torrance) and my friend Sean was in town, and we wanted to see what the local cuisine was like. We drove around for a while and finally decided on Ramen California on Lomita and Crenshaw. When we walked in we were hastily greeted and seated, followed up quickly with our beverages. When the noodles came it was bliss
Next it was on to the menu, and everything was very reasonably priced, including the beers. I had the Grilled Chicken Ramen, and you can have your choice of 14 oz, 20 oz, or 40 oz bowls. I obviously went with 40 and couldn’t finish it, but that’s not the point.
The point is that the noodles were still slightly firm, but tender and flavorful. The broth was clean without the overly salted flavors that ramen is stereotyped with. The chicken was succulent and the vegetables were still tender crisp. There’s also the California Ramen on the menu that has 20 garden fresh vegetables in it, along with an Heirloom Tomato Ramen that sounds off the walls. The cheapest bowl starts at $3.75 and the most expensive is $13.20 so even if you’re broke you can still have some delicious ramen.
