Wait time at Ippudo on Friday night?? tips on what to order for novice

erica Feb 12, 2010 02:51 PM

I would like to try Ippudo before an early film next Friday night. Can anyone give me an idea of the wait time for a table for three people around 5:30pm? (I am willing to go earlier, at 5pm, if I need to in order to get a table).

Aside from the Modern ramen and the pork buns, are there any musts? Many thanks.

    I like the Shiromaru Hakata Classic ramen the best. And the cucumber appetizer is great. Can't go wrong with Shishito peppers either.

      Thanks! I know almost nothing about ramen, so any tips will help. And I love shishito peppers, so will order those as well.

        i don't know the name, but i always order the last ramen on the menu at Ippudo. definitely the peppers to start...and the pork bun. chicken wings were ok, but not a must.

          Then definitely get the classic ramen this time.
