Right around the corner from Ippudo, Zundo-ya is another Japanese ramen import. Here, they will ask you whether you want your soup light, regular, rich, or super rich. There are also several different broths, a bunch of toppings, and even the choice of regular or wavy noodles. If you're really into having things exactly how you like them, and Ippudo waits are too long, hit up Zundo-ya.
