It was my first time there, but apparently Daikokuya is quite famous, landing on a top-five L.A. ramen shop list, which you can find in this earlier post.
We started with their gyoza, which is unique for its rectangular shape. I love gyoza, and these were good! (click to enlarge)
Of course I had to try their chahan, or fried rice. I’d rate it OK as it was a bit greasy:
And here is their ramen, called “Daikoku Ramen.” It’s a combination of tonkotsu (pork-based soup) and shoyu. It was good!
Overall, I would recommend Daikokuya, with the only downside being that you have to be prepared to wait at least 15 minutes (or longer) for a seat.
