Mei-Jin Ramen

Venue Info

This low-key Japanese restaurant serves ramen and izakaya-style small plates in an intimate setting on Second Avenue. Instead of the pork-based tonkotsu broth typical of many New York ramen joints, Mei-Jin specializes in a fatty, marrow-infused beef broth. The broth has a refreshing but rich taste, and is augmented in texture with wavy noodles, fermented bamboo shoots, garlic chips, and green onion. Nontraditional accouterments like arugula and meat chili round out the selection.
