Ippudo NY's pursuit of "Real Japanese Style and Next"
IPPUDO NY (East Village)
Ippudo NY is the first international Ippudo to introduce the World to authentic Hakata tonkotsu pork soup. From its modest origins on the Japanese Island of Kyushu to the non-stop buzz of our American flagship eatery in the East Village, our ramen is adored and beloved by New Yorkers, Japanese and hungry travelers the world-over. While Ippudo NY adheres strongly to its roots, embracing traditional Japanese ramen culture as its essential foundation, we aim to offer a modern and truly unique interpretation that is at the same time both an inspiration from Japan and influence of New York. Since its opening in 2008 and all the following years of taking the ramen scene by storm, Ippudo NY has stayed true to its primary focus of spreading happiness, smiles and thanks to each customer through one piping hot bowl at a time.
IPPUDO WESTSIDE (Midtown)
Embodying the original philosophy of the Ramen King and Ippudo founder Shigemi Kawahara, our second NYC based shop opened in Hell’s Kitchen in 2013 to “keep changing to remain unchanged.” Dishing-up the same signature Tonkotsu pork broth and premium house-made thin noodles that catapulted our East Village location into wide acclaim, Ippudo Westside brings another level of subtlety, refinement and depth to the flavor palette of our ramen and tapas-style dishes. Introducing our Buddhist-inspired Shojin - Ippudo’s first vegan and gluten-free ramen - monthly seasonal toppings and specialties as well as an extensive offering of unique and exciting sake, shochu and japanese liquor, Ippudo Westside aims to bring together the highest quality ramen, service, and libations. Stay tuned for our special events and tastings on our 2nd floor!
The renown ramen experts of Ippudo NY will open their next ramen concept at the City Kitchen in the ROW NYC Hotel, in February 2015. Kuro-Obi elevates the precise craft of ramen making, by offering true Japanese ramen cultural style of (The quick five minute ramen meal”. Ippudo NY will break the traditional ramen rule of “No take home” or “Take out”, that they are so infamously known for. Thus, Kuro-Obi will be the first and only Ippudo NY brand to allow and offer “ramen on the Go”.
Kuro-Obi offers Ippudo NY style and quality for those who don’t have the time to dine and experience Ippudo NY’s real japanese style and quality ramen. To further differentiate, The Ramen Master has created a new ramen recipe that is more friendly to the perils of “take away ramen” for Kuro-Obi, and will focus on exclusively offering “tori paitan”, a delicate silky pork and chicken blended soup base.
The goal is to allow many more visitors and New Yorker’s to have a chance to experience and savor Ippudo NY’s ramen. “Real Japanese style, and SWIFT”, is Kuro-Obi Ramen Dojo.
The proof shall be in the bowls! Slurps up!
