Ramen in Manhattan
- drbelfer Dec 21, 2010 04:51 AM
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.
Some also suggested that perhaps a place in the city would be wiser.
Not knowing any to suggst; I figured the Board would be a good place to investigate. Does anyone have any suggestions.
Do a search for ramen on this Manhattan board - loads of posts/information. This board is for Manhattan requests....for other areas you'll get more help if you post on those regional boards...
Haven't been to Hide, but haven't heard strong word of (respectable) mouth on their soup. Ippudo is probably the only one worth considering a destination spot. The rest are decent to below average and can be considered based on location/ convenience, etc. Ippudo has different soups but I believe only one type of noodle. They make them on site though- which is unusual.

We tried Naruto Ramen last night because it is so close by. Everyone is right. It is just not very good. The broth was a salt lick, and I am not adverse to salt! The pork was a water-logged piece of pork- not a flavorful stewed pork, but just tasteless. Really not recommended. Too bad. I had high hopes.
