    Best place to eat! Staff does their best to make it right and presentable, I always tip! My favorites are the chashu bowl and Tsukemen

    JAPAN ????????
    Eat the World NYC review:
    When talking about "Big 3" regional styles of ramen, most people outside of Japan have heard of Hakata and Sapporo styles, both having evolved from large metropolitan areas with many vendors and varieties. But a third lesser known style was developed in northern Honshu in the small village of Kitakata which gives it its name. Known for its storehouses full of soy sauce, Kitakata-style ramen uses this as its base, a type of shoyu.
    The bowl itself appears simple, a broth full of noodles and topped with chashu and some thinly sliced spring onion, but do not let this fool you. This broth has been extracting pure umami from pork bones for "long hours" which gives it an almost smoky and toasted taste, full of earth and charcoal.
    Ban Nai is the most famous source of this style of ramen, with 62 locations around Japan. Here in the United States there are now two in Orange County, California, one outside of Chicago, and now one tucked into a grocery store in Jersey City.

    One of the big chain ramen restaurants in Japan, this is their first location in the USA. While not quite as good as in Japan, they serve a nice hearty ramen with fairly clean broth. I wished the tea eggs were the traditional soft boiled eggs with a runny or goofy yolk. Overall a good place for a quick ramen fix with several delivery options if you need a ramen bowl that badly. The Charsiu (roasted pork) is nice a tender with a slight Smokey flavor.

    A bowl of ramen starts at $8.50 but adding options like tea eggs or extra noodles adds $1.50 to $2 an option. There are spicy ramen bowls, all char siu ramen bowls, and even vegetarian ramen bowls. Ramen bowls prices are on par for the NYC METRO AREA.

    They also have Gyoza which is average to above average for the price.

    1. Fried Juicy Chicken Thighs are Freshly Made.
    2. Restaurant Made Ramen Noodles.
    3. Well Cooked Rice.
    4. Special House Sauce is good.
    5. After doing Grocery Shopping Sit to Eat or Before.
    6. My Go To Hearty Dish is my own Creation 3 Chicken Piece with No Rice just Green Chill Ramen. Mix the Special Sauce with Fresh Squeeze of Lemon and Bam!! Fried Chicken Chilli Ramen. $15.00, Worth It.

    1. I wish they had Sauteed Ramen Dishes but I get it keep it Traditional and Easy on the Kitchen Staff. Less Work will Continue making Executed Dishes. *So this is a Pro and Con for me actually..* ha
