RAMEN ISHIDA

 

With over 15 years of experience in the restaurant business, chef-owner, Yohei Ishida (formerly of Ippudo), opened his eponymous ramen shop in 2017. He embarked on a mission to introduce New Yorkers his hometown “Tokyo” style ramen made with clear chicken broth. Ishida notes that although New York is in the midst of a big Ramen boom, most have only tried the tonkotsu ramen so far. With a staggering variety of ramen vying for attention, he hopes to debunk the perception that clear broth is less flavorful than a tonkotsu (white pork) broth and leave an unforgettable impression. After experimenting with countless ingredients and soy sauces, he’s discovered the magical combination of umami in both taste and aroma. The result? You decide.  

 
 

RAMEN

SHŌYU

Our clear chicken and soy sauce broth accented with earthy truffle and porcini mushrooms gives our signature Tokyo-style Shoyu Ramen a New York flair - ergo, the name - and makes for a delicious, yet approachable, and balanced umami combination. This one is for all New Yorkers.

MISO

The key to creating our Miso Ramen lies in the subtle citrus aroma. We use “Koji”, a seasoning base and curing agent also used in the making of sake. The deeply rich umami notes are first created by fusing three different kinds of Japanese miso with chicken stock. We then slowly extract another layer of umami notes from chili peppers using an in-house technique.

Spicy mushroom (mild/spicy/extra spicy)

Shio

Fish, pork, and chicken make for this deeply satisfying and highly nourishing broth that is seasoned with a unique mineral-laden Japanese salt. This well-balanced ramen is topped off with marinated bamboo shoots, seasoned soft boiled egg, chicken breast, yuzu, nori seaweed, and scallions.
