Located in a mini mall off of redondo, Shensen gumi serves some of the best ramen. Differing from the ramen houses in West LA, Shensen Gumi features a basic ramen with pork slices. They offer it with varying types of soups, oil bases, and noodle textures – but all basically the same. You really can’t go wrong here. While in West LA – they put garlic, other types of meats, vegetables, etc.
Open late, the crowd is mostly South Bay Japanese and Asian. You see from the images that the ramen is served pipping hot with a hearty bowl of soup. I love the soup. Actually, I like most soups. . .anyways, I digress. In addition, they offer combinations with gyoza or chicken rice bowls. I usually get the chicken rice bowls, as you can see from the image. The Chicken, ground, has a subtle flavor that is not overpowering at all.
Anyways. . . Shinsen Gumi Hakata Ramen is probably the 2nd best ramen house in the South Bay. I think Santouka Ramen located in Torrance’s Mitsuwa Market is the best in the area – their pork slices melt in your mouth. I will do a full review later.
