MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

When the chef of a successful Tokyo ramen-ya opens a spot in NY, success is virtually guaranteed. Mr. Taka may seem small and simple, but the food is fun and distinctive. Don't expect a conversation, since people dig in to these steaming bowls and barely come up for air.

The cooking here is a delicious break from tradition, thanks to ramen that ranges in toppings from avocado to the richest slice of pork belly on this side of the Pacific. The spicy tonkatsu ramen, from its glistening pork and its springy noodles to its zesty homemade chili oil and black garlic oil, is the ultimate antidote to winter. Other highlights include the karage bun with juicy chicken slathered in a fiery chili mayo and encased in a crispy fried exterior.
