Our Story

WOKOU 

A modern ode to the rich history of the iconic Japanese bowl of noodles, Wokou is far more than a traditional ramen spot – we’re urban, unique, unexpected, and rooted in culture. Sip & slurp up elevated comfort food with warm, fiercely flavorful noodles alongside sizzling plates of Japanese yakitori. From our bright, full-sized airbrush wall illustrations to our one-of-a-kind twists on classic menu items, Wokou promises an exciting eating experience that is anything but typical. 

Unlike most ramen spots, our lively, nightlife-driven bar has a full liquor license, allowing for vibrant signature cocktails & over 38 variations of whiskeys, including 17 exclusive traditional Japanese whiskeys! In addition to our vegan & gluten-free menu options & ramen noodles, we combine our tasty Asian-inspired dishes with ingredients to create innovative entrees such as Spicy Carnitas Ramen for a distinctive SoCal flair that you won’t find at any other ramen spot. We believe in genuine smiles, service & food made with passion. Join the Wokou movement!
