I got take out, but I'm still very impressed! It took about 20 minutes to make, but the service was odd.. No one really took care of me, instead I had to chase one of the girls to ask. It was kind of awkward. They give you separate containers for broth, noodle, and toppings, which was very convenient. Zebra- 4/5 This was a bit too salty, but the broth was still super tasty. Probably one of the best broth I've had. The noodles were delicious too although they are a bit thicker than your typical ramen noodles. The eggs are obviously a staple in noodles and they were not disappointing! Oh So Hot!- 4/5 They have 3 levels of spicy & I got the one with chili oil which wasn't really that spicy to me but still really great! And the ramen comes out super hot so be careful!

Stellar Shoyu broth; thick and meaty without being too salty. And broth is the star of the show. That said, the noodles were nicely chewy and the pork was tender and tasty. Best broth I've had in NYC and top five overall.

The star of the show is the broth. The noodles were too short so you can't really slurp them. I recommend the zebra as the black garlic balances The broth really well. The gyozas are near perfect. Crispy and soft with a hint of ginger. The fried rice was good. You get to mix it together on your table.
