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

New York Ramen

It's been a while since I went to Menkoi Sato so I decided to go there today with my ramen friend. Menkoi Sato is a ramen shop from Sapporo Japan who specialize in chicken paitan ramen. 
 I had their Shoyu Ramen. Their chicken paitan soup is very thick and matches very well with the Nishiyama Seimen noodles. Chashu is juicy and tender, memma is excellent as well. 醤油ラーメンをいただきました。鶏白湯スープは濃厚で西山製麺の麺との相性抜群。
 My ramen friend had her usual spicy one, Spicy Miso. ラー友はいつものように辛いラーメン、そこそこ激辛ラーメン。
