3 New Lunches I’m Very Excited to Try

IMG_1458Ramen fanatics… our wait is finally over.  Tsujita L.A. finally opens for lunch today, and will begin serving ramen and tsukemen- the dishes they are famous for in Japan. Normally you might want to give a place like this time to get settled, but they’ve been open for two months for dinner while clearly holding out on serving their ramen!  Clearly it’s ready for public consumption, and  if the Tanaka pop up at Mitsuwa last week (which was reportedly a testing ground for the ramen chefs at Tsujita) was any indication, it’s going to be amazing from day 1.

But that’s not the only new lunch I’m excited about this week…

Fukuburger, the Vegas food truck that specializes in “all american burgers with a Japanese twist for people who don’t take life too seriously”, has expanded to L.A. in brick and mortar form.  Their shop opened yesterday on Cahuenga in Hollywood, and it looks pretty tasty.  Burgers topped with fried eggs, crispy onion strings, and teriyaki sauce!? You ideas intrigue me and I’d like to subscribe to your newsletter.

But wait… there’s more.  When it was first announced that the tacos from the Yamashiro Farmer’s Market would be getting their own brick and mortar spinoff called Komida, I got super excited.  I’ve only tried the tacos 2 or 3 times, at random events, but they’re pretty delicious.  Sadly the place has only been open a few days a week, and only at night.  Thankfully it appears as if that was just a trial run, because yesterday it was announced that starting on Monday (10/31) Komida will be open Monday through Friday, 11am to 9pm.  I know where I’m eating lunch on Halloween!
