After a wonderful meal at Totoraku with great friends, we decided to continue our journey for 2nd and 3rd dinner, snacks! lol Yes, we are that hard core about food.  First Totoraku then Apple Pan and to finish off the night we went Tatsu Ramen With A Soul.
Tucked away in the busy area on Sawtelle.  It's been quite a while since I have been up in this area and it was nice to try something new.  You have to love that places are open very late in LA and there are a lot of choices to choose from.
They have an interactive menu that you can look through and order the ramen of your choice with any customization that you would like.  We tried the Bold Ramen with tonkotsu broth infused with 11 different ingredients.
The flavor was robust and savory.  For a late night place that probably tailors to students or people who are hungry after a night of drinking, I had my expectations set very low.  Since we also just ate a feast and another meal, I didn't think that I'd really like the ramen nor really care about the taste since it was the last stop of the night.
The Red Rice was pretty tasty as well.  It was full of flavor and was a great side to complement the ramen.  I'd be inclined to try the Red Ramen next time I am up there and still hungry after my main meal.
There really isn't any seating arrangement as more of a first come first serve place.  First go place your order on the electronic menu and it should print out your receipt.  Then try to find a seat and hopefully your dish will come out shortly.  There really isn't much to the service, especially if they are very packed.
All in all it was a fun late night place to catch up with friends who just got off work to join the group for 3rd meal.  It's a different day and age, we no longer have to just rely on Denny's or Taco Bell any more.
