Mei-Jin Ramen

I saw a write-up about this joint that mentioned their beef broth. Beef broth seems to be a pretty rare item in the NYC ramen world. I only know of three (and a half) places that offer it: Takashi (midnight ramen), Ganso (which I have not tried yet), Kung Fu Little Steamed Buns Ramen (this is the half mark, because it is technically not ramen), and this joint, Mei-Jin.

So I ordered their namesake ramen, which is a beef flavored miso broth. It was nice and creamy, and had a great beefy flavor with just the right amount of kick to it. The wavy egg noodles were cooked perfectly al dente as well. The only down side was that one of my slices of beef was too tough to even chew, so I left it in the bowl at the end. Bummer.

Another good thing about this place is the space – even as it was getting busy in there the place was large enough to sit more people than most ramen spots, as it has three rooms.

Here they are slinging the shit up:
