Located in a cool, modern space on the Lower East Side, Mr. Taka has somehow flown mostly under the radar, despite making some of the best ramen in the city. The soups here are a bit less traditional - one of them is made with white soy sauce and yuzu - but very tasty. While the broths and noodles are top notch, we've also found the slices of pork in their soups to be some of the best.
