Don’t let the name fool you—this renowned Tokyo ramen-ya, opening its first NYC outpost, is no noodles-by-way-of-Brazil concept. Instead, the only fusion fare you’ll find is its signature Thai-inspired green-curry ramen, famed among the faithful, including Ivan Orkin. With chef Shoushin Yanaura at its helm, the steamy open kitchen also delivers two 12-hour-simmered tonkotsu bowls: The Tondaku Ramen features Berkshire pork-loin char siu, kikurage mushrooms, ginger and crushed sesame; while the Tondaku Wadashi Jilu Ramen studs a pork-loin broth with menma (fermented bamboo shoots), nori and scallions. The minimalist, all-white space is styled with wood painted the color of creamy tonkotsu, and ceramic bowls imported from the original’s hometown of Setagaya, Japan.
