Zuzu Ramen

Manhattan’s ramen craze has creeped across the river to this Park Slope noodle house. Grab a seat at the dark-wood bar overlooking the kitchen (a better view than the alternative—gas-station-littered Fourth Avenue) and choose your meal-in-a-bowl. While the signature Zuzu Ramen—dashi broth floating springy noodles, a silky slow-cooked egg and hunks of braised pork belly—is plenty hearty, its intense saltiness gets tiresome. But superior versions like a spicy green-curry soup, rich with miso and thin slices of charred pork, help set this place apart from its Manhattan cousins. Supplement your meal with small plates, including the crispy pork dumplings.

The ramen is fine, but the highlight for me here is how authentic the atmosphere is. It's just like ramen joints in Japan. And the ramen ain't bad at all. It's no Minca, but it's a good option if you're in the 4th Ave area of Park Slope and want ramen.
