Kopan Ramen is a Japanese restaurant in Fullerton. The choices are stark: ramen, big or small, with either pork belly, chicken or fatty pork, or served vegetarian. Tell the server your spice level (the extra spicy is just that), ask for a couple of accouterments (in: gobs of garlic paste; out: a side of pickled red ginger, which is fine for sushi but fucks up the saltiness), and the bowl comes out within minutes. Oh, there are other small plates typical of an izakaya offered: soft-shell crab, a yummy bulgogi roll and ferocious kimchi. But all you need is that ramen. The broth is akin to drinking warm, savory milk, so comforting and decadent it is.
