Mogu Mogu was made famous by locals in Los Angeles who were crazy about mazemen. Mogu Mogu specializes in a “dry ramen,” which just means there's no broth with the noodles and toppings. Made with thicker noodles, Mogu Mogu’s version incorporates minced pork flavored in chili pepper and garlic-infused soy sauce, among other toppings, into its bowls. In English, the term translates to “mixed noodles” since one needs to thoroughly stir the components to evenly distribute ingredients and flavor. Utilizing the wider ramen makes for chewy noodles (think al dente) that are easier to combine. After one is done with their mazemen, it’s tradition to add a scoop of rice into the bowl to assist in finishing the meal.
Choose the toppings for your mazemen including minced pork, poached egg, chives, minced garlic, fish powder, seaweed, soft boiled egg, seaweed flakes or scallion. But mazemen isn't all that's on the menu. Be sure to try Mogu Mogu's famous original fried chicken.
