Alright, besides the Asian sandwich place that I mentioned below, I also had really yummy ramen this week. Ippudo in the East Village.
This famous ramen place is fairly hard to get into- they don’t take reservations and the waits are often over an hour long. If you are a hungry boob, then you are out of luck. (I am not sure why I chose “hungry boob”, it’s the first thing I thought of, leave me alone, you boob).
They sat us at the bar, and this is what it looks like-
The place is actually really trendy, but unlike many trendy Asian places in NYC, this one actually tastes good. I especially liked how delicate the food are as they prepare everyone’s food right in front of you. The meat slices are thin, each ingredient is carefully prepared and assembled, etc.
Here are the pork buns that we ordered. It was pork belly and lettuce in steamed buns. They were good, but we actually make these buns at home, so they are not as special to me. I know, I am snobby.
