Mega Ramen at Totto II in Hell’s Kitchen (51st & 10th) – no need for ordering extras on this. It’s a chicken-based broth (REALLY good, by the way – not your average bullshit chicken stock). So hearty and fatty, and topped with tons of different kinds of pork meat. I refer to this one as the pork pool party. $15.
Here’s a shot of the Paitan ramen that my wife had:
On a recent visit we tried some other stuff. First was a bowl of seared uni with rice, seaweed, and scallions. This was nice and earthy, and I liked the taste of a cooked sea urchin better than raw.
I had the paitan chicken ramen. Not even close to as good as the mega ramen with pork, but i probably worked wonders on the budding cold that I had brewing in my system.
My wife had the veggie ramen, which was surprisingly really good. The broth was peppery and had a kick to it. In fact, I liked the veggie ramen better than my chicken paitan ramen.
