Hide-chan Ramen


Acceptable ramen used to be a difficult thing to find in New York and along the East coast, but it seems that with the arrival of Ippudo a few years ago, many other high-quality shops are popping up to fill the demand of a craze that won't go away, and has no reason to.

Another good option if you happen to be stranded in Midtown is Hide-chan, on the second floor of a small building on 52nd Street. It is comforting and somehow transporting to ascend away from the activity of Midtown and reach this respite. The warm woods and modern lines feel quite a bit like you are eating in Fukuoka or a small town, and the staff is very attentive and efficient as you would expect.

We tried both the hakata tonkotsu ramen ($9.50, above) and the hakata spicy ramen ($10, below) to see the difference, and would thoroughly recommend the 50 cent upgrade, as the original is a little flat. The spices added make for a very enjoyable bowl, even if the fatty liquid quotient on the whole is lower than desired.
