When this popular Japanese import opened in Pasadena, almost instantly the lines were out the door. Maybe because Pasadena had never seen a bowl of ramen before, but more likely it’s because Tatsynoya’s bowls of ramen are just that good. If you’re a thin noodle kind of person, the koku tonkotsu is your move, but we tend to go all in on the thick-noodle spicy miso bowl, extra pork. Obviously.
