Queens, NY

Shuya Cafe de Ramen off of the Steinway subway stop in Astoria, feeling as it were transplanted from Tokyo with low tables and chairs in a peaceful dining room, sets a contemplative scene for seven ramen variations. Chef Shuya Miyazaki bucks tradition by turning away from the more common pork broth in favor of lighter fish and chicken alternatives. Attractive clay bowls serve as the vessels for the brothy noodles, which you’d do well to add the house-made spicy sauce to. Pork bun starters with egg-tartar sauce taste great alone or dipped into your ramen.
