Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop – A warm bowl of garlic

I love garlic. I mean, I really, really love it. That’s why Italian food always makes the cut as my favorite type of cuisine. But lately when I’m looking to get my garlic fill, I’ve found a Japanese spot that brings the garlic up to level 10.

Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop, located in the trendy new food hall Gotham West Market, is a popular soup destination opened by an American who lived in Japan for many years. You order at the counter and grab a seat at the many tables dotted about the space. If you’re like me and don’t mind tasting garlic on your breath for the next 24 hours, then get a bowl of Triple Pork Triple Garlic Mazemen. The special rye noodles are cooked perfectly, and the broth is hard not to slurp down as fast you can. Your breath might regret it, but your taste buds won’t.
