4. Hide-Chan Ramen
Where: 248 East 52nd St.
Nestled on the second floor of a walk up, Hide-Chan—the cousin of Totto ramen—is serving up the heat.
I ordered the Tonkotsu Miso Ramen, which includes hardboiled egg, scallion, bean sprouts, onion, corn, and chashu pork.
Noodle (You can choose how hard you want your noodle):
- Type: Wavy egg noodle; Firm hardness
- Thickness: Thick
- Texture: Chewy
- Saltiness: Medium to High
- Flavor Base: Miso
- Texture: Thick and Rich
- Tenderness: Tender (due to fat content; more fat than meat)
- Fat Content: High, pieces of meat surrounded by a fatty sub-layer
The midtown wonder creates bountiful enticing ramen for your tastebuds.
