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.

I gotta say, the number of amazing ramen joints in New York never ceases to amaze me. The broth here is a mixture of pork and chicken, and boy do they do it well. The meat is incredibly savory and melts in your mouth. The noodles here are a bit stronger than the average noodle, but still very good. If you like your spicy (I love spicy, though my body hates me for it), then definitely try the Oh So Hot. It's not that bad but definitely adds a good kick to the meal. I also tried the Spicy Fried Rice. They add an egg in there which mixes up a bit. For $10, I feel it's kind of overpriced; I think I can make it the same quality. However, it's still really good and hey, TREAT YO SELF. Overall, would definitely come back again!

Average. The chicken/pork broth/tare is light in density, and flavour. EAK ramen toppings are sparse, it is a lot of heavy noodles, although the seasoned egg is great. Service is OK.
