The modern is incredible. The pork buns are like crack! They are so good. There is a reason customers are queued up before they open the doors.
Theres a reason this place has a wait time of over an hour on week-nights, and boy is it worth it. Don't be discouraged by the wait time, but be smart and get your name down on the list early. If you fancy hanging out, get some Sake at the bar, and make sure you order the pork buns. Save space for the ramen though, you'll want to enjoy the fact that it's house-made and beautifully served with fresh ingredients in a complex broth that has both a rich flavor and depth.
Akamaru ramen is a classic must-try. The pork buns are also a great way to start off the meal! I recommend leaving your name around 1.5 hours before you want to have dinner and wander around St. Marks place to kill some time.
