Ramen
E.A.K. Ramen aka Machida Shoten in Japan, started back in 2008 in Machida City, Japan. This was our first shop to fulfill our goal to spread the IEKEI style of ramen to the world. Our purpose was to be a shop that is loved by everyone, but especially locals. We wanted to provide the best possible ramen, service and atmosphere to our neighbors. With this in mind, we started our mission to spread IEKEI to the world. (Photo of original shop in Japan or some major shops) Currently, we operate throughout Japan, Asia and parts of Europe. After capturing a major part of Japan, we decided the time was right to cross over the Pacific and enter the US market.

Last minute decision. Friendly staff. I had the E.A.K. Ramen with spicy chicken. I thought the flavors and textures were great. Was a little surprised all add-ins were $1 or more - seams like bean sprouts, onions, etc. should be included but oh well

We had a large party and they allowed us to sit together since we had our vaccination cards. The food was amazing and not pricey. The back patio was super cute with turf and heat lamps.

Really lowkey atmosphere. Will be going back!

EAK Ramen offers some of the most flavorful ramen broths in ALL of Los Angeles. Where some pork based broths might be too heavy, EAK's broth is super savory, but also light. The toppings provided by default are also perfect complements to the flavor of the broth. We love their Zebra & Oh So Hot Miso ramen, don't forget the matcha beer!

The owners & staff were very understanding of my Gluten intolerance and went out of their way to tell me they didn't have dedicated gluten-free facilities, etc.

The food was very tasty! The only issue I had was I had a 7:30pm reservation and we didn’t get seated till 8pm which to me was absolutely ridiculous. Other than that my boyfriend and I’s ramen was tasty.

We made a reservation on Open Table at 7:15 but had to wait for 35 minutes to be seated. Our food was delivered at 8:35. Place is understaffed privileging take-outs. All we heard from the staff was sorry, sorry, sorry....All customers that night seem to have the same issue.

Tasty food and nice patio atmosphere in the back.

The service was fast once we got seated, but we were not seated until 30 minutes after our reservation time.

Generic Japanese resto. Made a reservation and made us wait 30 minutes before we were seated. Me and my wife sat next to a group of people we didn’t know to celebrate our valentines. While everyone else got to do their dates in separate chairs, we did not get our privacy and was not satisfied that we spent valentines that way. Food arrived late to the point that we were done and the sushi still has not arrived. The heater was directly burning next to our cheeks. A staff even made us stand up to light up the table fire while eating.

The outdoor patio is pleasant and uncrowded, though most of the tables and seating is in a covered area which is ventilated by fans that are not always turned on. The service was friendly and attentive.
We ordered several small items.
The stir fried eggplant was excellent in every way.
The green salad was fine though the dressing had sesame in it and I found it mildly unpleasant (but if you like sesame dressing it would be fine.)
Agedashi tofu was decent though not quite as good as we have had elsewhere.
My companion had the salmon avocado rice bowl and liked it very much.
I had the tofu karaage, which the menu describes as having an "unimaginable" texture; I found the texture somewhat mealy, though the flavor was good.
On the other hand Spicy menma had a nice texture but I found the flavor a bit off.
I've had ramen here in the past and it's really good; I think I will stick with the ramen in the future.
Overall a pleasant and uncrowded spot to eat in the heart of Melrose.

This place is sooo underrated. They have the best happy hour till 7pm. Which includes 30% off your bill if you dine in. Their food is so fire and the ramen is the best I’ve ever had! Also, their service is so attentive and they make you feel like family. Love, love, love this place!!!!!

Food, service, and COVID procedures were perfect! Only downside is how loud Melrose is outside (a lot of insecure guys revving their engines really loudly down the street). I will still definitely go back, though!

I always love coming here! It’s mine and my boyfriend’s go-to ramen place. The food is excellent and so are the humans working here. Everyone is nice and we are always thanked for coming to dine. We are kind of regulars now so we’ve been remembered which feels so nice :) I always have a lovely time when I come!

Absolutely wonderful ramen. If you're looking for rich, filling ramen this is the perfect place. Add one of the spiced eggs to your ramen, they're the type of thing I'll remember and crave for years.

I ordered Spicy Miso Ramen which was pretty good. Our waitress was attentive as well. Overall a great experience and one carafe of hot sake for $5 only certainly added extra points!
