    We really need a decent Ramen place here in San Francisco! Daikokuya would have a huge following and no competition.

  • Hey there! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading through your articles.
    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects?

    Thanks!

    I was seeking this certain info for a very long time. Thank you and good
    luck.

    Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I'm looking
    forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  • Jacob - 6 months ago

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be helpful to read through articles from other
    writers and practice a little something from their sites.

  • Booker - 6 months ago

    I have read some just right stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting.
    I surprise how much attempt you put to create one of these wonderful informative web site.

    Valencia!!! There is not one single ramen place. You would have the whole Santa Clarita Valley to yourself. There have been many times that my wife and I crave ramen and we have to drive down to the San Fernando Valley or West L.A. area.

  • Lucille - 7 months ago

    Da komme ich gerne wieder.

    Riverside, near UCR. UCR has an incredibly robust Asian student population there isn't a ramen shop for at least 40 minutes with no traffic. First to open a good ramen shop here will make a killing, seriously.

  • Kristina - 1 year ago

    Riverside County/Inland Empire!! As someone else mentioned, there are NO other places to get ramen out here. The closest ones are 30~40 minutes away. I know a LOT of people who would be happy and regular customers if we had a ramen place closer to the I.E.

  • Joanne - 1 year ago

    Cerritos! We need a good ramen place. It's close to OC, LB, South Bay, and LA.

  • Henry - 1 year ago

    Cerritos has a ton of asians who would go crazy if you opened a store here! And we are sufficiently far away from your other franchises that we wouldn't be cannibalizing their business while close enough so most of us have heard about it/tried it and are dying for our next fix!

    I think there is only one other 'ramen place'- and it doesn't even specialize in ramen- in the area!

  • Krish Kumar - 2 years ago

    Open one in Torrance!!! :)

  • jessica - 2 years ago

    Sherman Oaks or Studio City. This place is full of actors and foodies and I have tried tons of ramen places around here and none even come close. Studio city has a great night life and if you opened on Ventura Blvd., I am sure you would have loads of customers :)

  • Marie P - 2 years ago

    Irvine would be an idea place. There is a large asian population here. I was sadden that the Costa Mesa location closed down.

  • Phil - 2 years ago

    Seattle please, you won't regret it.

  • CELIA - 2 years ago

    San Francisco Please!!! I know LA west is the top right now. But since there's already one in LA. What about open one in SF instead????

  • Dawn - 2 years ago

    Phoenix, AZ would love a Daikokuya! We have few places that serve Ramen and those that do lack your rich delicious broth! Please consider us. ~ Onegaishimasu~

  • richard - 2 years ago

    Pasadena despite need one, got only 1 ramen place that is thai.

  • Mlosuno - 2 years ago

    HOUSTON PLEASE!!! I've only been to LA once, but I live in Houston. I'd go there as often as I could

  • Loothor - 2 years ago

    YOUR RAMEN IS A FLAVA BOMB!

    Bring one to Las Vegas, please! You can rule the Spring Mountain Road (Little Asia) area in no time! We love our Japanese food here and you guys take it to a whole different level!

  • Christy - 3 years ago

    I had to move away from Los Angeles for a job on the East Coast. There's NO good, authentic ramenya here. Please!!! Come to the East Coast! Whether you choose New York City, Boston, or Washington, D.C., I'll drive anywhere!! California is so lucky to have you, and I miss you terribly. I definitely second the D.C. vote.

  • Elmo - 3 years ago

    I would love to have it in D.C

  • YSP901 - 3 years ago

    San Francisco / Silicon Valley. All the techies around here would gladly spend money for a hearty bowl of Daikokuya Ramen.

  • DJ - 3 years ago

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE - San Francisco should be the next location.

  • richard - 4 years ago

    Pasadena desperate need one, tired of crap jap food in pasadena.

  • John - 4 years ago

    As an ex-Angelino living in SD now, I would vote for expansion at least 1 hour driving outside of closest store. Personally, I would love it in SD. But on a buisness standpoint it HAS to be in Las Vegas...no doubt. My ranking: 1) LV 2) SD 3) Torrance/South Bay 4) Valley 5) Da Empire 6) Ventura

  • vida rodrigues - 4 years ago

    visitor from San Antonio Tx. Absolutely the best ever!!!! Open one in San Antonio, you'd make a fortune. Nothing like that here, Would knock the socks off of everyone. Too many tacos, no noodles! That broth is like a bowl of heaven. Never had anything like it.

  • Richard - 4 years ago

    Please consider a place outside of Weirdafornication. Not everyone who likes noodles lives in Granolaland.

  • Christy - 4 years ago

    My favorite place in the whole world!! Open one up in Boston or New York City! Share the wonderful food with the east coast!

  • clay - 4 years ago

    dude open it up on venture and keep it open until 4 am!

  • Michelle - 5 years ago

    I love your ramen so much, but I am all the way out in San Bernardino. I get these wierd cravings for your ramen, but there is nothing out here that can compare to the delicious taste of your ramen. Please oh please build one out in San Bernardino soon.

  • Tony - 5 years ago

    The Inland Empire has NO ramenya's at all. From Riverside to LA, Torrance, or Costa Mesa is about 40 miles. If you come to West Riverside, you will be the only ramenya out here and all my friends and I won't have to make field trips...

  • Tim - 5 years ago

    Anyone craving good ramen in West LA that doesn't want to drive out to Little Tokyo for Daikokuya should check out Santouka inside Mitsuwa on the east side of Centinela just north of Venice... would definitely welcome a Daikokuya as a worth challenger/alternative tho!

  • Brian R - 5 years ago

    San Diego! I'm with the other Brian above, I drive to LT Daikokuya frequently due to business. Come down here!

    There's only one decent ramen shop in town and it's frequently filled. Plus, they don't have the oh-so-more-delicious flavor that Daikokuya has :3

  • Gerald Abraham - 5 years ago

    Having lived in japan for some time, I grew accustomed to the taste of tonkotsu ramen at places like ippudo, nidaime tsujita, apple basic, aoba and a few other. Daikokuya is the closest thing in Los Angeles to ramen that makes me feel like I am back in japan. Not just the food, but the inside of the restaurant also gives the vibe of what makes Japan feel like it does.

    My one wish is that Diakokuya expands their chain to the san fernando valley as there are simply no good tonkotsu ramen shops out here and the average wait time (45 minutes) at the closest shop in little tokyo is a little much.

  • Monique - 5 years ago

    Silver Lake Silver Lake please =)

    Little Tokyo parking can be very very expensive and Silver Lake is just full of cafes that don't really taste so good.

  • RJ - 5 years ago

    Would love to have you in San Diego. LA has tons of competition, but SD has pretty much zero at your level. A sizeable Japanese community here though, including Japanese from abroad working locally.

  • Lisa - 5 years ago

    you would dominate the Westwood/West LA area. My friends and I (and many others) always drive to Downtown to eat at Daikokuya even though there are many closer options for ramen on Sawtelle. They just don't compare!

  • Willy - 5 years ago

    Irvine Costa Mesa area.... look at the sucess of the Japanese restaurants there (Anjin, Shin-Sen-Gumi) !!!

  • Brian - 5 years ago

    We drive from San Diego and eat at Daikokuya. There's good Japanese food here, just not Ramen. You should open up in Convoy. It's bigger than Little Tokyo with much lower rent, all the Asian restaurants are there!

    There's actually a good market here and not enough to fill demand - Tsuruhashi and Okan were booked full for years after opening. You have to get to Tsuruhashi 10 minutes before opening (4:50pm) to get a seat. =)

  • richard - 5 years ago

    Arcadia and Pasadena will be good for their next location, those area are desperate need some ramen place.

  • shurley - 5 years ago

    Chino Hills has a good base of asian demographic, yet there are no good Ramen places. We have many Pho, but no Ramen. I'm just glad we got a Ranch99 store!!!

  • Lars H - 5 years ago

    Long Beach/Belmont Shore. A vibrant shopping/dining district, with sophisticated patrons who support dozens of eateries offering a variety of cuisines (sushi, Middle Eastern, Indian, Mexican, Italian, Thai, et al). You'd fit right in and you'd save me the drive from the Shore to Little Tokyo.

  • Athena - 5 years ago

    Please move towards Ventura County if not to Ventura County, we have NOTHING out here that is even remotely good. We NEED Daikokuya out here or at least nearer so I can convince people that it really isn't to far to drive. Right now it is almost and hour and a half.

  • kenny - 5 years ago

    I love the food and the service was very good!!!

  • Jayden - 5 years ago

    There are absolutely no worthy ramen joints in the Inland Empire and a Daikokuya opening here would be INCREDIBLY AWESOME!
