Ramen in socal

If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life, it would probably be ramen.  I can eat bowls and bowls in a short period of time, and still never be sick of it!  Here's a snippet of ramen places I've visited in Socal, my home base (tonkotsu? shio? miso?)Hahaha

The * starred restaurants * are the ones I recommend :D

I've also been to Daikokuya and Shinsengumi, but wasn't that impressed :\ but.... I'll definitely give them another try and also take some photo evidence hehe.
