Jin Ramen Came to Harlem USA!
Jin Ramen is located right next to the subway exit 125th Street. It has a very hip, bustling vibe, open kitchen, and friendly staff. Even chef Marcus Samuelsson’s website mentioned this place, which was impressive.
The things I liked most about this restaurant are that it brings ramen to West Harlem and that it is very reasonably priced.
-Shoyu Ramen ($10)—
Served with slices of braised pork belly, a boiled egg, bamboo shoots, roasted seaweed, and scallions.
I don’t think that the noodles or the broth are as good as those at Totto Ramen or Ippudo. Yet I still give this place major props for opening up in Harlem.
(But if I were ever in the mood for truly excellent ramen I would go to “Tabata” near Port Authority – 540 9th Avenue at 40th Street.)
