Here's a good ramen place in the Westwood area of Los Angeles, CA that a fellow PuristS took me to called Ramen Yamada:
They offer a complimentary fresh garlic which you press yourself.
We started with the Chicken Kara-Age, they did a great job with this! YUM!
Their special noodle is the Kakuni Ramen, I ordered it with the seaweed, egg, and char siu toppings. You can get it in diffferent levels of spiciness.
The Kakuni pork belly was really good so we got a extra side order to share. Very tender and had a wonderful flavor to it
