Tsujita, which already serves some of the best ramen in the city from its tsukemen and Hakata-style bowls in Sawtelle to its spicy tantanmen at Killer Noodle, will open a new ramen restaurant called Tsujita Noodle Production on Fairfax Avenue on November 9. The news comes after some food forum junkies spotted some window details back in mid-August that the former Kaya Street Kitchen would turn into some kind of ramen spot.
As Eater hinted back in August, Tsujita Noodle Production will take some of the chain’s greatest hits from its various locations and serve them altogether, including the cha shu tsukemen from Tsujita Artisan Noodle in Sawtelle, the hefty Jiro-inspired ramen from Annex, the Downtown-style tantanmen from Killer Noodle, and chicken ramen from Tsujita’s Americana at Brand location in Glendale.
One wonders if this Tsujita will be as popular as its Sawtelle locations given how tough the parking is in the area. Also, since it’s a few blocks south of the main drag of Fairfax District, where places like Jon & Vinny’s, Badmaash, and Prime Pizza live, it could be a bit of a trek for anyone nabbing special edition wares at Supreme. Still, it’s a big win for anyone living in Mid-City or West Hollywood who wants to taste a sample of the best ramen bowls in the city without schlepping to the Westside or Glendale. Tsujita also runs a high-end omakase sushi bar on Sawtelle, for anyone keeping track of its LA empire.
To celebrate its opening, Tsujita Noodle Production will give away 200 bowls on both November 9 and November 10 beginning at 11 a.m.
