Tatsu Ramen Hoping To Open on Melrose by July 1

Tatsu Ramen, which sold hundreds of thousands of noodle bowls at their Sawtelle location, is currently only a few weeks from opening on the corner of Melrose and La Brea, around the corner for the line-heavy Pink's Hot Dogs. Founder Ryu Isobe is upping the game substantially here, including a separate noodle operation that will supply both this spot and the Sawtelle original. The same iPad ordering system will take place before 50 or so diners can pack into a room that boasts a unique angular ceiling. In the meantime, Isobe has commissioned a grand dragon mural to line the exterior of the building.
