Ippudo Restaurant Review

: Japan's famed ramen restaurant has launched a location in Santa Monica, joining American branches in New York and Berkeley, California. The self-proclaimed “Japanese Ramen Noodle Brasserie” features its signature Hakata tonkotsu pork ramen, Buddhist-inspired Shojin vegan specialties, and a variety of high-end Japanese small plates. Expect Japanese beer and saké, as well as a full bar.
