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!

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.

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.

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.
