It's time yet again for half-off ramen, where bowls can be scored for as little as $4 all over Southern California. This delicious deal comes courtesy of Japanese magazine Weekly LALALA, and it's happened twice before. This round starts on March 14 and goes until March 27. To take advantage of the deals, all you have to do is purchase a pass via DINE50 for $1.99, and then all the half-off ramen you desire is yours.

Participating restaurants include spots in Pasadena, the Valley, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Gardena, Orange County and San Diego. Only certain menu items are included, and the prices tend to hover between $4 and $7.

Don't expect bowls from some of the newer joints, but do look for Shin-Sen-Gumi Hakata in West L.A. and several outposts of Gyu-Kaku.
