It’s a Ramen kind of week…

Earlier in the week Manhattan Users Guide posted their 5 best bowls of Ramen in the city… and it included two of my favorites (Menchanko Tei & Sapporo).  It was probably my inspiration for lunch on Monday & Tuesday (that and the disgustingly cold weather).  But apparently we’ve all been missing out on the real deal Midtown ramen steal…

The Ramen Special @ Chikubu (44th & Madison).  It’s $11.50 and only served on Friday & Saturday for lunch (with Japanese pickles and rice).  It’s a little bit more money then I’m used to spending at lunch, but for handpulled ramen in a pork stock that is supposedly simmered all week long, I’ll make an exception.  (Considering how authentic and expensive Chikubu is normally, one could argue it’s actually a deal!) Don’t be turned off by the line, I’ve been told it moves really quick…

Technically it’s not Midtown (and it’s not Ramen)… but oh well- it still looks pretty sweet! Hot and Spicy Noodle Soup from Kofoo (8th Ave. btw. 26+27th)
