366 W 52nd Street (Bet. 8th & 9th Ave) New York, NY 10019I had heard about it from one of my fellow students at Berkeley. We actually tried to go there a few weeks ago, but we didn't succeed because the line was insane. Finally, another mate and I went there and decided to wait in line. It is always packed. You arrive there and you will need to write your name on a list. It took us around an hour until we actually sat down at the restaurant, which was about 10:30pm.
Open Hours:Mon – Fri 12pm – 12am / Sat 12pm – 11pm / Sun 5pm – 11pm
The place doesn't have a lot of space. Only a few tables, so you most probably will end up sitting and having your meal at the bar. That was actually cool, you get to see how they cook everything and it's very entertaining.
The soup was delicious. I wish you could appreciate the taste, but the pictures I took might give you a hint. It was worth it to wait in line for such a long time! I felt like I was in one of those Japanese manga cartoons.
It was a great experience, since I tend to relate Japanese food with sushi and those kind of meals. This was actual Japanese traditional ramen. I definitely recommend you try it, you can have an awesome dinner for less than $15 per person.
