Chef Andre Guerrero has a long, strong history of restaurants in Los Angeles, and now he’s expanding into a whole new foray altogether. Ramen Room will be the Oinkster and Maximiliano chef/owner’s first trip down the Japanese rabbit hole, but according to the man himself, he’s enjoying the fall.

Guerrero has been secretly on a mission for some time now to bring quality bowls of ramen, done his way, to Los Angeles. Of course there are already great Japanese-run bowl spots aplenty, but Ramen Room hopes to offer something with a strong Filipino twist.

Take a look at the menu below, and you’ll see a variety of cross-cultural options for both starters and soups. There’s crab sushi, spicy tuna rolls, and lumpia to start, followed by straightforward shio and tonkatsu ramen, plus a fish sauce’d bowl of chicken soup with rice noodles that provides a new look at a classic preparation from the Philippines. You can also expect beer, wine, and hopefully some draft sake as well. Ramen Room opens to the public October 14.
