坦坦麺と陳麻飯（コンビネーション2番） / Tan-tan-men & Chin-ma han (Combination#2) Chin-Ma-Ya of Tokyo@Los Angeles: A new spicy ramen noodle outlet opened in Weller Court, Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, called "Chin-Ma-Ya of Tokyo." They have several locations in Tokyo and other parts of Japan. It is their first USA location. They serve Shisen style Tan-tan-men noodles soup and Chin-ma-han (Mabo Tofu over Rice). I tried it for the first time a few days ago.

I ordered #2 Combination to try both Tan-tan-men noodle soup and Chin-ma-han with Mild spicy seasoning. It was for a full size Tan-tan-men and a half size Chin-ma-hand and $9.50. The seasoning choice was: Original (Very Very Spicy), Medium, Mild Spicy, and Vegetarian.
At the entrance, we got a coupon to get a free appetizer (Gyoza Dumplings, Fried Chicken or Edamame Soybeans) with two Entree, so we ordered a free Gyoza Dumplings.
Mild Spicy Tan-tan-men was little spicy and just right for me. 3 noodles stuck together at a portion, so I deduct one point from the Tan-tan-men review. Chin-ma-han was sweet and little spicy with red pepper. Gyoza dumplings were good, crispy outside and juicy inside. We were satisfied with over-all taste, price and customer service. They gave us two appetizer coupons for the next time.
"Orochon Ramen" of Hokkaido (North Island of Japan) is located right above this "Chin-Ma-Ya of Tokyo" on the 3rd floor. It was crowded with 15 to 20 minutes waiting little before 2 PM on Saturday. Orochon serves spicy ramen noodle soups and tasty Gyoza Dumplings. So, it's Spicy noodle battle between Orochon and Chin-Ma-Ya. It will be good to bring customers for both of them. At first some customers might flow from "Orochon" to "Chin-Ma-Ya" because of the waiting time.
