In more innocent, pre-food culture times, I ate Top Ramen at least five times a week. Was that a healthy thing to do? Of course not. Although, in fairness, it was probably the healthiest thing I did at the time, not least because all those preservatives have probably kept me looking relatively young (I'm pretty sure that's how preservatives work.) Anyway, ramen is not just about cheap eats for college students anymore—it's a veritable obsession for food-lovers all over New York. My favorite place for ramen now is Prospect Heights restaurant Chuko, which has a limited menu and is cash-only, but that's just fine. The food isn't pricy and the ramen is so delicious that you won't want anything else, except maybe a side of spicy pickles.
