Ani Ramen House
New Jersey-based Montclair Hospitality Group opens the 8th location of their popular ramen chainlet, Ani Ramen House, this month within Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place. One of the brand’s signature ramens is its Spicy Miso Ramen (on the menu for the last seven years), and chef/partner Julian Valencia says he was inspired by the fermented paste’s versatility. This version is made with a blend of four types of miso, as well as a chili paste, which add a creamy texture to a chicken broth base. Chewy Sun Noodles fortify the soup, as does braised pork belly, alongside yu choy, chives, cabbage, and scallion.
