Available: Friday and Saturday, after midnight
“In Japan, we have ramen after drinking,” said 1 or 8 owner Maho Mizutani. “In the morning, it may not feel so good, but we keep doing it anyway.” And 1 or 8’s late-night ramen is certainly a great reason to keep this boozy tradition alive. It features a flavorful chicken, fish, and pork stock broth, curly noodles, bok choy, a spattering of scallions, and generous slices of pork. It’s easily shareable among friends with a ladle and extra bowls, which you won’t do... because they can get their own, dammit.
Bonus information: the dual-page cocktail menu includes sweet, spicy, vegetable, and starchy cocktails. Plus, there’re other Japan-meets-Brooklyn eats on hand, including duck prosciutto and incredibly crispy breaded chicken wings with a spicy dipping sauce... that this writer just now called “the best thing she ever ate”.
