Kaioo Ramen

Kaioo* Ramen opened in the first week of February, replacing an unsuccessful hotpot restaurant.  With the LA ramen revolution in full swing, it’s nice to see some new places to slurp the hot bowls of noodle in the SGV. On my first visit, I ordered the eponymous Kai Original Ramen bowl in a combo with […]

Ramen Champ — Long Live The Champ

Disclaimer: I was invited by a friend to Ramen Champ and did not pay for my meal. When I first walked into the small ramen restaurant, what caught my eye was the bold black on white drawings on the wall.  If you look carefully, you’ll see a narrative created by noodles.  While plenty of places are nice […]

Honey Badger Restaurant

When I was walking back from lunch on Saturday, another storefront caught my eye.  The exposed Edison bulb chandeliers and dark wood surfaces made me think this was going to be a hip coffee place on the rejuvenated Main street in Alhambra, but it was actually Honey Badger — yes, the same Honey Badger as the […]
