I discovered Ramen Takumi few years ago, at the time it was located close to Union Square. It then moved few steps from Washington Square Park. We were going for ramen in another location when we passed in front of it and finally decided to eat there. Funny enough, the restaurant was packed when we arrived. Ten minutes later, half of the dining room was empty.

For sure, we could see a lot of students from NYU there, looking for a cheap comforting meal on a cold Saturday. We decided to start our meal with pork buns, prepared with slow cooked pork belly, cucumber, romaine and caramelized onions.

It was a good start, the dish being quite flavorful, with perfectly made buns, fluffy and a bit sticky. 

Then, Jodi went for avocado roll, thinking that a ramen would be too big for her. And to warm up, she got herself a tea,

On my side, I opted for the Syo-yu Tonkotsu ramen, made with a soy sauce flavored broth (pork based), two slices of pork, soy sauce flavored egg (perfectly cooked with a quasi runny yolk), scallions, bean sprouts, fish cake, onion and noodles.

I really liked it, although the broth was a bit too salty (I drank lots of water after...). The pork was delicious, as well as the noodles that were a bit al dente. And I had no problem finishing the bowl...

It was a good meal and the ramen was delicious. Not the best ramen, but still very good. If you ask me, I will probably go back to Ramen Takumi, reorder the pork buns and try another soup. 

Enjoy (I did)!
