Rai Rai Ken

Restaurants, Japanese East Village
Colllege students and budget eaters have been packing this beloved ramen-ya since it opened in 2000. The überpopular East Village joint outgrew its digs in 2012 and moved to a larger space a few doors away, but the menu is unchanged. Slurp up one of four bowls: shoyu, shio, miso or the TONY favorite, curry. Gyoza, edamame and chashu (roasted pork slices) round out the simple menu.
