Mo’s is just a neighborhood ramen place in the same way that Timbaland is just a Virginia-born record producer. Which is to say, this is way more than just a ramen spot. These people smoke their own meats and serve them with ramen noodles in a jerk-seasoned broth. If you’re wondering whether these unusual Japanese-Caribbean mashup dishes really work, the answer is yes. Our favorite, the spicy miso option is the perfect combination of salty, sweet broth and smoky, juicy meat in a huge bowl of noodles. Plus, this restaurant is from the people behind Glady’s, so it’s no surprise that everything costs less than $15. Come to this Prospect Lefferts Gardens spot for a weeknight dinner, a weekend date, or by yourself whenever you’re in the mood to be sedated by way of jerk ramen and sake.

Waiting in a line outside of any restaurant seems a bit silly to us, but Tomoe is arguably one of the best sushi restaurants in the city, as you will see by those patiently standing single file out front on most nights. And it certainly isn't the atmosphere that's got people queued up on Thompson Street. The place is a dump.
