counter: ramen weather - la times


if it’s been an unaccountably long week for you too, then maybe it’s time to head to the mall. not kidding, at least if you love ramen as much as most of us do. because not only is din tai fung at the mall in glendale, there’s now a branch of one of the best ramen shops in southern california there too. so maybe stop in for a bowl of tsukemen at the tsujita — jonathan gold’s latest restaurant review — before you head up to mammoth or mountain high. you may need all that pork-intensive nourishment while you wait in those long lines.if ramen isn’t your thing (really?), then you might visit one or two of the notable neighborhood restaurants that are closing their doors, either in a few days or a few weeks. or a few of those that are opening their doors. or maybe one of the restaurants on jona
