I first heard of Ichiza from edjusted and couldn't resist not trying it before leaving Las Vegas. So as I said my final congrats and bid adieu to the happy couple, I was back to my crazy ramen eating ways that went sort of like this: I walked in, grabbed a seat, and asked the cute Japanese waitress which ramen was the best. Without hesitation she said "Ramen DX!" You gotta love a girl who's confident about her ramen. Anyway, I would have been perfectly fine with talking to the waitress all night, but the ramen was a callin'.
Ichiza Ramen DX: Interesting. Unique. Okay. It wasn't bad. The tangy miso was full of flavor and spice. It eerily reminded me of Saika Ramen from the town of Tenri without the massive amounts of garlic. I only say eerie cuz Tenri still creeps me out. Anyhow, the DX stands for deluxe and it only differs from the regular miso ramen by the big piece of kakuni and half-slice of egg. The kakuni was tender and moist, but I recommend that you split it in half and let it soak in the soup for a few minutes. The center was a bit cold. Overall, I enjoyed the Ichiza Ramen experience. If you ever find me passed out on a casino floor underneath a poker table, please drop me off here. Thanks!
It's located on the West side of the 15 freeway about 10 minutes from the strip. It's an Izakaya so ramen takes second billing here. It's open daily from 5pm to 3am. From now on, I will be going here everytime I'm in LV.
