Jinya Ramen Bar: This ramen-ya was part of the ramen renaissance that thankfully happened in L.A. a few years ago. There are bowls of tonkotsu ramen with black garlic like an oil spill, spicy miso and crispy Brussels sprouts; spicy vegan ramen; and wonton chicken ramen. If ramen isn’t your thing (really?), there are rice bowls, gyoza, curry rice, chashu-stuffed buns — even salmon poke tacos. They also have takoyaki, which are addictive fried octopus balls topped with Kewpie mayonnaise. 11239 Ventura Blvd., Studio City; (818) 980-3977; jinya-ramenbar.com.
