Noodles in Theater District/Hell's Kitchen

TheMightyPat Aug 21, 2012 09:01 AM

I know there are a ton of ramen threads on this board, but I can't seem to find any recommendations for something near the Signature Theater on 42nd and 10th. Are there any good ramen or other noodle bars in the area?

Thanks much.

      Tabata Noodle is close by.

        Tabata Noodle is the closest. Totto is also reasonably nearby, but I find that the wait there is usually too long for a pre-theatre dinner. I also like Sapporo on 49th near 7th Ave.

          Totto is my favourite ramen joint in the city and I much prefer it to Sapporo (doesn't help that Sapporo raised their prices by about 30% in the last year or two). I find that on certain days you can get into Totto relatively quickly (< 30 min wait) if you get there by 6:30. Not sure if that's feasible in your case.

            We tried Sapporo yesterday. My 12 year-old, who has eaten a lot of ramen, really liked the texture of the noodles, but found the broth of her misoramen too salty. She's had misoramen before, so I don't think the issue was one of being unfamiliar with the concept.

            I have an injured hand and some chopstick challenges, so I had side dishes. The 3 piece gyoza appetizer was excellent, as was the cold tofu dish. The shrimp shumai were sweet, but pretty tasty. Wakame salad was a bit dull.

            Also, warning, Sapporo is cash only.
