Has anyone tried new ramen shop in E.Village (Ave. A btwn 9&10 i think), Setagaya?
We saw it was open on Wed. but were not hungry and yesterday when we came around 11, they told us they were already all sold out unfortunately. The restaurant looked pretty full and based on Setagaya's reputation I'm looking forward to trying it.
I went there a couple hours ago and it was closed. Guy behind counter says it'll be open tomorrow. While I was taking pictures of the menu taped near the glass door, a group of five Japanese guys walk in and were told the place isn't serving. Sighing heavily, one of them blurts-- "but we took a cab!"
My expectations get raised a notch, hype factor is high here but I'm hoping this place turns out to have the best ramen in Manhattan... heck, make it New York!
What a chowhanger.
