We could use a cheap egg, and put out a $9 bowl, but we want the good egg, the heritage pork, the scallions from Japan,” said Blankenship. “Some people think nothing of spending $12 on a cocktail. Why not on a big, beautiful, filling bowl of ramen, that we’ve put our heart and soul into?”
Sounds worth it to us. While Zuzu Ramen in Park Slope is tasty enough, it doesn't come close to the quality of Manhattan's Ippudo or Hide-Chan. Hopefully Blankenship and Koon can put Brooklyn ramen on the map. Chuko will open sometime in late August.
