With locations all across Los Angeles, a late-night bowl of ramen from Tatsu is never out of reach. The thick noodles and rich broth are exactly what you need after a night out, but if traditional tonkotsu ramen isn’t your thing, Tatsu has plenty of unique options. The Naked Ramen is a broth-free option that is full of flavor, while the Hippie Ramen remains completely vegan from start to finish. If you don’t feel like eating your ramen in the restaurant, simply pick it up and take it to-go for a cozy meal at home.

Sanamluang Cafe has mastered the art of comforting Thai cuisine, using traditional recipes and flavors to create beloved classics like Pad Thai, Pad Ka Pao and Tom Yum soup. This laid-back and casual eatery follows a no-frills, no-fuss pattern, but the quality and consistency of the food truly shine. Start with some chicken satay and deep-fried shrimp cakes before ordering your favorite noodle dish and taking any leftovers to-go. If you’re in need of a late-night boost, treat yourself to a Thai iced tea with boba.

Honey Night is a one-of-a-kind Korean pub that serves hearty Korean cuisine and crisp beers until 2 a.m. While many late-night bars and pubs have a reputation for having mediocre food, Honey Night is a major exception. Each dish features authentic flavors and high-quality ingredients, but there are some can’t-miss items you should try, such as the cheesy fire chicken and rice balls. If you’re hoping to get a head start on curing your hangover, order the signature Korean army soup with noodles, ham, cheese, sausage and spam.

Whether you’re on a date that’s going well or ending the night with your best gals, nothing beats a dirty martini at Jones in West Hollywood.
