Just a reminder to all ramen fans! Pork bone broth is "TONKOTSU", NOT "TONKATSU". TonkAtsu is breaded deep fried port cutlet, not pork bone broth!!
Hint: If a server says Tonkatsu Ramen at a restaurant, don't expect authentic ramen. Ton = Pork🐷, kotsu = Bone🍖

Menkoi Sato - West Village, NY🇺🇸 麺恋佐藤 - ウエストビレッジ、ニューヨーク

Menkoi Sato, from Sapporo, Japan just opened their NYC shop in July 2018.  They specialize in their original chicken paitan soup, offered in shoyu, miso and shio. They import their noodles from the famous Nishiyama Seimen which specialized in Sapporo Ramen.

For my first visit, I tried their miso ramen. 
 Sapporo style wavy noodles, good-

I will be back to try their shoyu ramen!
