With so many ramen restaurants opening around town, it can be hard to decipher which is best. Let me make it easy for you. The Sandy Springs outpost of Los Angeles chain Jinya Ramen has my current favorite (and the most consistent) tonkostu ramen and ramen in general. The hefty broth is creamy and clings nicely to the thin, springy noodles that are made fresh daily. A hearty serving of noodles fills each bowl of tonkotsu along with slices of slow-cooked pork that’s not overly fatty and usual accouterments such as green onion, wood ear mushrooms, and soft-cooked egg. Pro-tip: if you order a “Kaedama,” when you finish your noodles and still have broth leftover, they will bring you a hot, fresh batch of noodles for your remaining soup.
