This little strip-mall slurp shop came to the rescue of suburbia’s soup-starved hostages a few weeks ago, when it opened with a small but traditional ramen selection augmented by typical snacks like gyoza and fried oysters. If some among its captive audience consider the à la carte charge for certain toppings -- including the seasoned egg called ni-tamago -- tantamount to paying their own ransom, they should know that such fees aren’t really so unusual; whether they’re worth it at this particular ramen-ya remains to be seen (though the veteran chef-owner does have promising cred).
This little strip-mall shop is easy to miss despite the fact that it’s located right off Broadway. It has a small but traditional ramen selection augmented by typical snacks like gyoza and fried oysters. Yes, you'll have to pay extra for certain toppings à la carte—including the seasoned egg called ni-tamago—but if you've eaten enough ramen, you know that such fees aren’t really so unusual. Now pay up and slurp away.
