Silverlake Ramen, which has been open for 2 years makes you completely put that Ramen out of your mind forever. The Japanese Noodles with broth served here are thousands of levels above that.
The flavors are like nothing I've had before, and most are served with pork belly or chicken.
The seasonings used to prepare the bowls are fantastic, flavorful blends that compliment every bite.
Along with the Ramen, there are hand cut rolls of tuna, vegetable, etc. Also, wonderful appetizers.
They have 42 years in the business of making Ramen, the broth is cooked for 16 hours for richness
Silverlake Ramen is located at:
2927 W. Sunset Boulevard
Silverlake, Los Angeles, CA 90026

Kush is a new restaurant, by the same chef, Denny, who owns Silverlake Ramen. For this Japanese Saki and skewer bar, he picked Echo Park for it's location and we couldn't be happier. In the former Cortez location, you can now choose from wonderful Sake's, Beer and Wine, along with skewers of delicious Japanese inspired meats and vegetables. Definitely try the Seafood fries, a bucket of seasoned fries with grilled corn, shrimp and mussels, excellent!
For the skewers, we had the duck breast with onion and bell pepper, the asparagus,scallop, bacon wrap with anchovy sauce, which were both delicious. For vegetables, we had the japanese pumpkin with honey sauce and the brussel sprout with truffle oil, highly recommended.
This is Kush's second week open, and I would suggest going soon before it gets as crowded as Silverlake Ramen.
Kush is located at:
1356 Allison Avenue, just off Sunset
Echo Park, CA 90026
No website as of now

Between Echo Park and Silver Lake there are so many Pizza Joints, I had to stop counting.
I've wanted to try Los Angeles Pizza Company and Mama Lena's Kitchen since it opened, and today was the day.
Not only are they Pizza, but a complete menu of Italian goodies, including Italian dishes, desserts and a Deli.
The Pizza is very back east style, in that it's hand thrown and the crust is nice and thin.
I can highly recommend the Pepperoni Pizza, which is loaded with pepperoni!
Next time I go, I will have to try the sandwiches and the pasta, can't wait.
The nice thing is you can eat in, take out or have it delivered. They also offer catering.
If you are in the area, you should definitely check this small place out.

Seems that's what may be happening at the original Barragan's Mexican Restaurant. A beer and wine license has been issued to The Lost Knight. Sounds like it would be a great choice, seeing as there is definitely enough Pizza, Mexican and Thai in the neighborhood. The full article appears at TheEastsiderLA.com
