Ramen in NYC
I am heading to NYC and a traveling companion really wants a good bowl of ramen. I've found Rai Rai Ken, Ramen Setagaya, Ippudo and others. The question is pretty simple, what is the best ramen in NYC?
FYI- I have already been to Momofuku Noodle Bar and have noticed that there menu is leaning more towards prix fixe rather than their "Greenmarket" driven noodles.
I was highly impressed by Sobaya on E. 9th St. The soba are hand-rolled at the front of the restaurant while you wait for a seat and were out of this world good. I had mine with fresh uni and was certainly not disappointed. In my opinion much better than Ippudo, also smaller and less of a 'scene'.
Another vote for Ippudo's akamaru modern. It beats the crap out of all of the other ramen joints in the neighboorhood. Not even close.
