Kame Ramen is a popular ramen restaurant in New York City. It is known for its delicious ramen noodles, spicy tonkotsu broth, and overall good dining experience. However, I found the experience to be mediocre overall.
In addition to its delicious ramen, Kame Ramen also offers a variety of other dishes, such as gyoza, whole pork belly buns, and rice bowls. The gyoza are made with fresh vegetables and have a crispy exterior. The pork buns are filled with tender whole pork belly and have a sweet and savory sauce. The rice bowls are topped with a variety of meats and vegetables.
The dining experience at Kame Ramen is also very good. The restaurant has a modern and stylish atmosphere. The staff is friendly and attentive. The prices are reasonable.
I recently had the opportunity to try the noodles at Kame Ramen for myself. I ordered the spicy tonkotsu ramen, and the noodles were definitely on the soft side. They were also somewhat soggy, which made them difficult to eat. I found myself having to slurp them down in order to get them down my throat.
The flavor of the noodles was good, but the texture was a real disappointment. I would have preferred them to be a bit more firm and chewy. Overall, I was not impressed with the miso ramen noodles at Kame Ramen. I would recommend trying the miso ramen instead, as the noodles in that miso ramen dish are a bit more firm.
The real saving grace and winner here is the amazing spicy tonkotsu broth. The icon spicy tonkotsu broth at Kame Ramen NYC is the star of the show. It is made with pork bones that are simmered for over 24 hours, resulting in a rich, flavorful broth that is both creamy and flavorful. The broth is also seasoned with a variety of spices, including ginger, garlic, and soy sauce, which give it a depth of flavor that is truly unique.
One of the best things about the broth at Kame Ramen NYC is that it is not too salty. Many ramen broths can be overpoweringly salty, but the broth at Kame Ramen NYC is perfectly balanced. It is flavorful without being too salty, and it is the perfect complement to the other ingredients in the ramen.
The broth at Kame Ramen NYC is also very filling. It is the perfect size for a satisfying meal, and it will leave you feeling full and satisfied. If you are looking for a delicious and filling bowl of ramen, the broth at Kame Ramen NYC is definitely worth trying.
The meat was a double edged sword for this bowl. Looking at the picture below, it looks prepared perfectly which leaves the mouth salivating with anticipation.
The chashu at Kame Ramen NYC is a pork belly that is braised in a soy sauce and mirin mixture. It is then sliced thinly and added to the ramen. The chashu is a popular topping for ramen, and it is often one of the highlights of the dish.
However, I was disappointed with the chashu at Kame Ramen NYC. It was not marinated well, and it was overcooked. The chashu was dry and tough, and it did not have the flavor that I was expecting.
I think the chashu at Kame Ramen NYC could be improved by marinating it for a longer period of time. The chashu should also be cooked for a shorter period of time, so that it is still tender and juicy.
The overall execution is really a balancing act. Whereas the noodles and meat scream being overcooked, the broth screams perfection. For this reviewer, the broth really saves this bowl and elevates it past mediocre.
Lastly is the aesthetic. Regardless of any of the tastes, the bowl presents good food really well. The braised pork belly chashu looks tender and appetizing in the creamy broth. The garnishes and overall presentation was done really well and contributed to elevating this dish.
The dishes here provided diners the options of adding extras such as the poached egg seen below. This allows the individual to customize the dish to their liking and the egg was poached perfectly in this case. This helped aid the execution and overall score.
