Peekskill Ramen - Ramenesque

I had a nice bowl of pork Shoyu Ramen at this newish Ramen house on main st. in peekskill. The broth was full of flavor and contained nori, fresh scallions, corn, half an egg, a couple of nice chunks of pork and noodles. no one is going to confuse the fare with ippudo but they serve a nice, hearty bowl of ramen, the owner is really nice and the food is well-priced.

The person next to me ordered gyoza and was told they were all out as they had to make more. I take that as a good sign. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

on a side note, there's an Ecuadorian deli on the same block and I couldn't help but notice the patrons were eating big bowls of soup followed by platters of fried chicken. that's up next!

    Thanks for reporting back! I'm not a huge fan of ramen but it does sound appealing in this cold weather.

      the non-ramen menu looks like it would be worth exploring:

      Had a great meal at Ramenesque tonight. The gyoza was very tasty, and the Ginger Chicken Rice Bowl was delicious. But the Tom Yum Ramen was really fabulous. The space is very pleasant, and the owner and staff were friendly and attentive, and it was cheap! But it was quite slow and we waited too long for our food. Nonetheless, we will definitely be back. They're still waiting for a liquor license but will soon have sake. And there's a garden for warm weather.

        They got a pretty decent write-up in the NY Times this weekend

          took my wife here recently and we had the tonkatsu mentioned in the article. The review characterizes the curry as "muddled" but I'd say it's muddled in the way a good stew is muddled. The pork was nicely fried, the curry had a little heat, we thought it a great comfort dish on a cold, winter day.

            Wow that review was poorly written, not up to the Times food reviewers usual quality. Read like an amateur blogger.

            Are they allowing byo as they wait for their license?
