Friends asked if we [living in Queens] knew of any places they could bring their daughter to, as she really enjoys Ramen. A place perhaps to select the type of broth, noodles, etc. A place in Queens or Nassau.
Not knowing any to suggst; I figured the Board would be a good place to investigate. Does anyone have any suggestions.
i think your best bet is Manhattan. if you're willingly to travel, you should try posting there.
The best and only place I know of is the Japanese restaurant on the southwest corner of Union St and Northern Blvd in Flushing. I generally order the ramen with shrimp tempura. Not about to do an analysis of the broth but it a thoroughly satisfying lunch. Much better than the dishwater they serve at many Japanese restaurants on the island.
I thought there was a Setagaya Ramen in Flushing, but it may well have come and gone judging from this thread. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/610964
Maybe one can make a day trip out to Mitsuwa Market for the Santoka Ramen in the food court. I like the experience of casual eating environment for ramen there.
I have been informed that 1 or 8 in Williamsburg does late night ramen on Friday and Saturday. And that it is really good.
1 or 8
