Finally made it to the ramen Hypebeast, Ippudo. Everyone knows it’s flexing with the largest ramen following in the US. People come far and wide with the hopes to catch a bowl along with the infamous pork belly bun. Or at least I did.
After missing out last summer due to time constraints, I finally made it on this NYC trip. So F’in excited. Please give me a bowl ramen with a rack of pork belly buns. I got the modern version, which was their most popular. It was a harmonized bowl of goodness. The components were very impressive – flavorful creamy broth, fine noodles, and nicely executed pork belly & egg. I actually tried to go 2 times on this trip but couldn’t endure the 2-hour wait time. Word of advice, go early or expect lines.
Word on the street is there’s a new Ippudo on the Westside.
