Hollywood: Tanmen and Fried Rice at Atch-Kotch
Recently I’ve been exploring the strip mall next to Sassafras Saloon. I hit up Pita on Vine and had great falafel. Now I’ve tried Atch-Kotch, a homey Japanese restaurant. The original owners have a sweet and fascinating story and I wanted to support the cute restaurant serving what I call Japanese soul food.
I was going to get regular ramen but Atch-Kotch serves tanmen which is just like ramen but with plenty of veggies. I got the mison tanmen which came with some decent chasu but the highlights was really the insane amount of veggies – beansprouts, corn, cabbage, bamboo, broccoli and event carrots.
I got a combo and chose a small shrimp rice to go with my noodles. It was cooked really well though the shrimp could have been seasoned a bit more.
My only wish is Atch-Kotch stays open later. It’d be a great place to hit after before Sassafras but I’m happy to go back to try other Japanese dishes before bar hopping in Hollywood.
