Thrillist dubbed the Yatai Ramen Pop-Up "crazily meat-heavy," so perhaps vegans and vegetarians will want to steer clear of the 3rd Street location of Breadbar Monday-Saturday evenings through July 24th. The lowdown:

The menu's mostly noodle-based, with bowls full of marine poached egg, kurobuta pork belly, nori, and bamboo shoots featuring out-there additions including raw beef tenderloin, ox tail, foie gras, and truffle oil, [...] More-standard fare is also available, w/ straightforward-ramen options including sea salt, miso, and soy sauce; there's also two types of potstickers, one a dumpling stuffed w/ pigs feet and the other w/ kale

LAist Featured Photos pool contributor Subspace stopped by to check out the posh soup/noodles set-up. Of the Shio Ramen: "I actually found the Yatai noodles to be too firm. The broth and accouterments were very good (the eggs and pork in particular were amazing), but the noodles were barely better than Top Ramen. So, sort of worth $10?"

Anyone planning on checking out the $18 Foie Gras Ramen?
