This Japanese restaurant in Brooklyn Heights specializes in ramen and makes all its noodles fresh in house daily. Kogane offers both Tokyo-style or Hakata-style ramen: the former uses the more popular thin, curly noodles while the latter has long, thin and firm noodles. Try either style in traditional tonkotsu ramen with pork jowl, wood ear mushrooms, scallions and a soft-boiled egg ($13) or the spicy miso with minced pork, mushrooms and black garlic aioli ($14). The menu also includes vegetarian options, like the spicy vegetable ramen with kale, okra, red pepper, shiitake mushrooms and miso ($12). Not in the mood for a steaming bowl of broth? Try the ramen burger with curry sauce ($10), the miso-glazed broiled eggplant ($6) or the spicy pork jowl buns ($8). A bottle of cold sake or a Sapporo ($6) will help wash down the meal in true Japanese fashion.
