Yuji Ramen

The Boyfriend and I have known about the Smorgasburg inside the 2nd floor of Whole Foods Market on Bowery Street for a while but we haven’t gotten a chance to try them out until now. Basically, every month they feature a new pop-up restaurant that will serve up something unique to customers. Yuji Ramen has been extended until the end of August. They specialize in Mazemen, which is a new style of broth-less ramen that are served with a variety of toppings. IMG_3690 I decided to try their Salmon & Cheese Mazemen ($9.00), which features cured salmon, cheese and lemon. The combination sounds a little gross but I can assure you that it was one of the best ramen dishes I have ever had. The noodles were bouncy and chewy. The cheese sauce had an¬†Alfredo¬†pasta sauce consistency and mixed very well with the ramen. The salmon portion was also generous and mixed very well with the melted cheese. It was so delicious! IMG_3692 The Boyfriend opted for their Daily Shoyu Ramen ($9.00), which has a different broth everyday since they source their bones from the Whole Foods Market. I had a quick bite of the ramen, which had a very nice tasting broth and bouncy ramen noodles. The Boyfriend absolutely loved the broth. He even drank the entire bowl of broth, which he didn’t even do at Ippudo. IMG_3691 The portion sizes aren’t really enough to fill you up for lunch or dinner. But we were looking for a semi-filling snack since we skipped lunch but was eating dinner a about three hours. It was absolutely perfect for our snack! I left pleasantly full without being too full for dinner later on in the night. I loved my ramen dish and will definitely be back before May is over to have it again!
