A different kind of Ramen

Torigara Ramen at Nakamura: thin noodle, light chicken and fish broth, chashu pork, bamboo shoots, spinach, naruto fish cake, nori with Ajitama egg

What comes to mind when you think of Japanese ramen? To me,it’s wavy thin noodles in a usually a cloudy,pork bone broth. Pork bone Tonkatsu broth is slightly pungent and superrrr salty😫. This broth was totally different.

It was light and clean tasting, translucent broth. The flavorful chicken and fish broth was refreshingly light compared to a bold pork bone broth.The broth reminded me of the soup my Chinese family makes because of the chicken base and there is a tinge of herbalness to it I can’t pinpoint. The tinge of herbalness, surprisingly works well in this ramen.The level of saltiness was perfect. (Didn’t make my tastebuds cry for water and didn’t wake up the next morning with a bloated face.)  Would visit again. This literally tastes like comfort in a bowl. I can be found here eating this deliciousness in the following  cold months.

Price: $$ 


Nakamura is a small ramen place next to the Williamsburg bridge. It’s walk-ins only so don’t bother calling or emailing for reservations! First come- first serve~
