Kohoku-Ku ramen is a tiny restaurant in Hell's Kitchen filled with colorful paper lanterns, makeshift seating made from repurposed Suntory crates, and a very fun bathroom. If you like your ramen broth incredibly thick and rich, you'll love the soup here, which borders on gravy. We really like the ramen at Kohoku-Ku, but we absolutely love their yakitori. It can be ordered by the skewer—we highly recommend the saba, which comes lightly marinated in vinegar and is artfully charred on the outside. The menu also covers all the classic izakaya dishes, like curry rice and karaage. It's pretty close to Times Square, but is far enough away from the main action that you can use this as a non-touristy pre-theater option.

Ippudo is still one of the best (and busiest) ramen spots in the city. If you haven’t been, or have some time to kill in the East Village, stop by.
