- Kambi Ramen Inc351 East 14th Street, New York, NYrecommended Kambi Ramen IncI love Kambi Ramen House! I finally got around to trying this place a year ago and find myself going back a few times a month. Sometimes, I'll go on a two-three day bender! I appreciate that they ... read moreallow you to customize the noodle style when ordering your ramen, so I usually get the Shoyu ramen with thick noodles. The restaurant is small, but comfortably seats its customers. Ramen is a real personal experience where I like to strip down to a tank top with a clean dish towel around my neck to sop up sweat as I slurp up that salty goodness. So I usually order takeaway. I also get a side of kimchee which gives perfect balance to each bite! The service is quick and the waitresses are so sweet and polite. They even remember my name and order! There are two downsides, one is cash only and the other is no delivery. Although I can see delivery be an issue if the order sits too long in the delivery guy's bag and the noodles run the risk of going soggy! Anyway, I highly recommend this place to any fan of ramen that don't need the bells and whistles that come with an Ippudo or Momofuku!Ed Lee
If you like Minca, then you'll love Kambi as they are sister restaurants! The food and service at both locations are top notch!

I'm sure you've already been here as it's one of the top Ramen spots in the city, but I had to include it! Let the fun facts begin. It's founded by David Chang who is the cool dude behind my absolute favourite magazine, Lucky Peach, and a total Ramen hero in the food world. The Momofuku restaurant group is actually named after Momofuku Ando, who was the inventor of instant Ramen. Incidentally, it also means Lucky Peach in Japanese. :)
