For serious eaters both here and especially in Japan, ramen noodles are a religion. Here are our favorite spots that have gained some serious slurping traction.
When temps dip, we instantly crave noodles. And, when noodles pop into our heads, we almost always turn to Ippudo. The hip, East Village noodle joint serves up serious ramen like the Akamaru ramen, a bowl of noodles with red miso, black garlic oil, and ivory slices of Berkshire-pork. Ippudo always has a line, but it’s also always worth the wait.
Ippudo is located at 65 4th Avenue New York www.ippudony.com.
