Chuko Kimchi Ramen
#1. Zuzu’s Green Curry Miso
A classically trained ramen master from Japan comes to Brooklyn and helps define this outer borough’s more alternative ramen scene with his non-traditional ramen soups. The Green Curry broth sounds like a misstep, but is actually awesome. The bowls are hearty and plenty for one meal.
173 Fourth Ave, Park Slope
Chuko’s ex-Morimoto chef is a legit master of broths, but the mix-and-match meat toppings seal the deal—like a heritage Giannone chicken for tender slabs of breast meat.
552 Vanderbilt Ave, Prospect Heights
#3. Yuji Ramen’s Uni Mazemen
Yuji Haraguchi excels at mazemen (brothless) ramen intertwined with top-shelf under-the-sea delicacies, and the luxuriously silky and saline uni (sea urchin) is a must try. It might sound scandalous to say this, but it’s kind of like the best linguine and clam sauce ever.
90 Wythe Ave, Williamsburg
