What Hood are You From

Daikokuya, Santouka, Jinya, Manichi, Toraji (most Japanese think yakiniku when they hear that one), Tatsu, Kotoya, and Ikkousha are few of the Japanese ramen shops in the SoCal area. What they all have in common, is that these are OG ramen names that are typically based off of the owners surname.

Those are also names I think most Americans like minus trying to pronounce it because they sound like they are straight outta Tokyo, but now we’ve got new school playa’s. Players like Silverlake Ramen, La Brea Ramen, and the most recent newcomer Venice Ramen who opened its door last month in Marina Del Rey (yea not Venice). They’re all claiming cities, so I suppose this could limit Silverlake Ramen opening a 2nd location in Venice because that’s not the city they claim, haha. Well somebody will just have to drop the bomb on all new ramen shops with “Westside Ramen” (I deserve credit for this when it happens) to one up the ramen shop naming game.
