Momosan Ramen

Iron chef and all around badass Masaharu Morimoto recently opened Momosan Ramen in Midtown East. The long narrow restaurant has minimalistic design and a long bar in the front decorated with illuminated sake bottles (of which they offer 13 types). Inside the restaurant you will find communal tables and booths of large groups. The menu is small with dishes that are great for sharing. Their zondon bowl with soy marinated tuna has the most expertly cut, perfectly dressed fish that you come to expect from Chef Morimoto. The remainder of the menu focuses on tonkotsu and chicken ramens, with traditional toppings like garlic oil, scallion, and toasted nori. The most flavorful and unique bowl is their tantan ramin in a spicy coconut curry with pork chashu, red miso ground pork, aji-tama, and cilantro. It’s a nice casual spot to go on a date or with a group. Here’s what we had:
