Yokohama Kaigenro – Los Angeles, CA

Yokohama Kaigenro is another ramen shop situated in the deserted former Yaohan Plaza. Located on the first floor next to the Mitsuwa entrance, it appears to be a nice, friendly place to enjoy a good ramen. Unfortunately, their ramen wasn’t very good. I’d rather take the escalator up two stories and eat ramen at Hanaichimonme or Honda-ya.

Shoyu-ramen: The soup was an average shoyu with an unexplainable after-taste. I couldn’t quite pinpoint the strange taste but it must have something to do with the dashi. The noodles were crinkled and average as well. The toppings (chashu, egg, baby bok choy, menma, moyashi, negi, and nori) were the best part of this not-so-impressive ramen, but they still couldn’t make up for the damage already done.


Shio-ramen: The shio soup was really bland and tasted like sea water–very fishy. The noodles were the same as above. The toppings (chashu, cabbage, egg, moyashi, menma, and negi) couldn’t make up for this flavor either.


Gyoza: They looked good but looks can be deceiving. They weren’t the worst that I’ve had, but they still could’ve used some more flavor.

  1. I was in the former Yaohan Plaza over the weekend and Yokohama Kaigenro is gone! It is now a Pho place. I not really sad to see it go though. I ate there years ago and was pretty bad.

  2. Gees I am really glad that I found your blog! My husband and I are both good ramen lovers and we had set our minds in trying out all the ramen places in LA and everywhere we go! Thanks for sharing! I am gonna bookmark your blog and visit often!

  3. I’ve also eaten @ Yokohama Kaigenro. This place wasn’t that great…but, I’ve had worse! It certainly leaves a strange, undescribable after taste…like Seaweed…ICK!
