Mr Taka Ramen

Chef Takatoshi Nagara and Takayuki Watanabe opened Mr. Taka Ramen in New York’s Lower East Side in 2015 with no shortage of rave reviews. The restaurant is the result of a long-standing childhood friendship, many years of research and travel across Japan, and an unparalleled pedigree when it comes to ramen-cuisine, earning a coveted spot on Michelin’s Bib Gourmand list.
While lines continue to form outside of the much-lauded Lower East Side outpost, we keep joining the queue, even in the dead of winter. Guests can expect favorites such as the Miso Ramen with chicken and bonito fish broth, wavy flat flour noodles, sliced pork belly, ground pork, scallions, bean sprouts, chives, cilantro and the Taka’s Vegan in a vegetable broth with soy milk, wavy flat flour noodles, avocado, zucchini, tomato, mushrooms, tofu, leeks and scallions.
