It's been a cold gray day in L.A. and going outside only seems worth it if there is a reward for braving the weather.

The menu is a hodgepodge of several Asian cuisines, but Ramenya offers good, steaming, and flavorful bowls of ramen soup in your choice of the traditional chasu (pork) or tofu noodle. For the more adventurous, try the spicy kimchee or garlic ramen. If you don't want hot noodle soup, you can opt for shrimp fried rice or a fried broccoli rice combo. Ramenya is also one of the few Asian eateries open all day without interruption, so even with it's location a few blocks from Sawtelle, there is usually a line outside the door even at 3 in the afternoon. If you just want to stop in for an afternoon snack after work, they also serve side dishes of gyoza and pork shumai to keep you going until dinner.

Warming up with a hearty bowl of soup is one way to bring some color back to your cheeks on a gray day.
