10 Places to Get Vegan Ramen in Los Angeles

We’re obsessed with the vegan noods at these ramen spots in LA! Whether it’s 50, 75, or 100 degrees outside, a warm bowl of ramen is always the move. While the traditional Japanese dish is made with meat- or fish-based broth, there’s a wide variety of vegan options available. Here’s a list of some of our favorite plant-based ramen varieties around town.

RAKKAN Ramen

Multiple Locations

Most of the broths served at this ramen spot are plant-based so it’s super easy to order your bowl vegan. You can also substitute kale noodles if you need some extra greens in your life! The Vegan Quartz ramen comes with noodles, umami shiitake mushrooms, green onions, corn, and tofu in their creamy veggie-based broth. Craving something on the spicier side? Order the Vegan Spicy Garnet bowl which is up-leveled with sesame paste, black pepper, and spicy miso sauce! Aside from bowls of ramen, RAKKAN offers vegan buns, gyoza, rice, edamame, and Brussels sprouts.

Gokoku Vegetarian Ramen Shop

Studio City

At this vegetarian hot spot, you can either pick a preset ramen bowl or get creative and build your own! From curry, mushroom, and garlic jalapeño to spicy udon, pineapple, and kabocha, the ramen varieties are endless. For an extra flavor boost, add on some of their extras such as Beyond Meat, tofu, or miso sauce. And no trip to Gokoku is complete without a roll or two of vegan sushi!

We’re obsessed with the many vegan bowls from this ramen joint! The Vegan Tantan Men showcases a creamy vegan broth with spicy soy-based meat, bok choy, bean sprouts, green onions, sesame seeds, and fried burdock. The other vegan options include the Spicy Vegan Ramen, Maitake Vegan Ramen, Avocado Roll, Cucumber Roll, and more.

Jinya has three vegan ramen variations on the menu—Spicy Creamy Vegan Ramen, Vegetable Soup Ramen, and the Flying Vegan Harvest. The latter of the three is made with vegan miso broth, thick noodles, soy meat, tofu, bean sprouts, broccolini, green onion, corn, red onion, crispy garlic, and chili seasoning. So basically we’re ordering a bowl once we finish writing this article! They also just added two new limited-time vegan dishes.

The bowl is filled to the brim with a vegetable broth miso and loaded with bean sprouts, corn, mushrooms, tofu, broccolini, baby greens, kale, red cabbage, and avocado mixed in. Is anyone else salivating just by the thought of it?

This all-vegan ramen spot is quite the talk of the town! Their menu showcases classic, spicy, and garlic ramen renditions as well as a cold smokey ramen dish with chilled buckwheat noodles. Each option is made with a sunflower seed broth and can be topped with a vegan egg if you’d like. We repeat—A VEGAN EGG! Other noms enlist Togarashi tater tots, banh mi poutine, and ahi “tuna” crisps.

Tatsu Ramen

Sawtelle, Melrose, & Pasadena

Take a trip to Tatsu for a warm bowl of flavorful vegan goodness! Their Hippie Ramen features a house-made vegan broth with curly noodles, spinach, scallion oil, fragrant sweet onion, and a hint of ginger—just order it with organic tofu to make it vegan. The Naked Ramen is a broth-less dish that can be requested vegan by omitting the egg and adding organic tofu.

If you’d like to venture down the spicy path, order the Spicy Ramen Revolution which comes with spicy miso broth, brown rice noodles, kogashi black garlic oil, chili oil, kale, tempura flakes, and vegan ground beef.
