You'll find the best ramen in LA at this little hole in the wall in Little Tokyo. I've had a lot of ramen in my lifetime and can say without a doubt that Daikokuya is super oishii. I mean, look at that photo of the husband and son. It's a sort of, "Hurry up and take the picture so I can start chowing down on this bowl of steaming ramen" kind of look. 

You'll probably have to wait in line for a table no matter what time of day but it's totally worth it. The noodles are always a perfect al dente, the broth is full of wonderful flavor (never bland and not too salty) and the slices of pork are just heavenly. Slurp!!
