Japanese cuisine expert Harris Salat (author of Takashi's Noodles and Japanese Hot Pots) and chef Rio Irie (Matsuri) join forces to open the latest contender in a wave of modern ramen-yas, like Chuko, Dassara and Yuji. Their Downtown Brooklyn joint serves classic soy and miso broths, alongside comfort-food spins like crispy-pork-and-garlic gyoza pot stickers and pork loin buns. Grab a seat at the L-shaped bar that wraps around the glass-enclosed kitchen, or at one of the wooden booths made of raw cedar.

Ganso is offically my go to ramen spot if I am ever in the Downtown Brooklyn area.
The must try from Ganso is the chicken wings , gyoza and the kimchi pork buns. No, seriously, get the kimchi buns.
The ramen itself is a hit or miss depending on how you usually like your ramen. But I usually go for their spicy miso.
Their rice dishes are also pretty good, I recommend the salmon teriyaki, because who doesn't like salmon?
Good news for Brooklynites though– No more will you have to go to Manhattan for a bowl of delicious ramen!
