Went to Daikokuya Ramen in LA on Saturday. This was my first trip to a ramen restaurant, and reading reviews online, this place came highly recommended. When we got there, there was a line about 10 people deep out the door, and it was only like 4:00 p.m.
To make a long story short, I was a little disappointed w/ the overall flavor of the ramen. It seemed a little bland. Granted, my ONLY experience to this point w/ ramen is Top Ramen, so in no way am I an expert on the subject. The marinated egg didn't seem to have any different flavor than a regular hard boiled egg.
My question is: Should I try a different place, or were my expectations a little out of whack?

You were probably doing it wrong. Here's what to do:
Kidding aside, I mean regular ramen usually is sort of bland so I don't know what sort of flavor you were expecting. I usually go to Ramen-ya on the Westside, though, so I can't compare to Daikokuya.
