Highlights From the Rogue 99 ~ Tsujita

[dropcap size=big]W[/dropcap]hen Tsujita opened back in 2011 on Sawtelle Boulevard, it was almost immediately a destination for the many rameniacs in the city, so much so that, borrowing a page from the Din Tai Fung school of empire building, it opened a second location near its first, then another at the Americana in Glendale. Almost seven years later, the original Tsujita shop is still going strong. You have your choice between tonkotsu ramen or tsukemen ramen, the former made with a rich, porky broth simmered for some 60 hours before thin noodles are added. The latter option is made with that same broth but reduced into a concentrate, spiked with a little seafood for even more umami; thick noodles arrive separately in another bowl, and you are to dip those noodles into the broth one biteful at a time. Anyone who loves ramen will have an opinion on whether the tonkotsu or the tsukemen is preferable. We can, at least, all agree that Tsujita is one of the best ramen shops in the city.
