It's Winter, Have Ramen.

Tonkotsu Ramen
I'm trying to have explore the world of soup. Not that I like soup, because I refuse to admit such things, this is purely research based activities. For lunch recently with Mango Strawberry, we met at Men Kui Tei.

Tonkotsu Ramen
Both of us got the Tonkotsu Ramen, pork bone broth with roast pork, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, and scallions. I found this broth to be significantly less salty than Sapporo's, though salty enough to warrant not getting on a scale later on in the day. The pork is very meaty, a good sign in my book. All in all, I highly enjoyed this ramen, preferring it to Sapporo's, and completely worth the hike up to 56th Street from Grand Central.

I just went to (and wrote about) Menkui Tei too! Except it was the one near St. Marks. Their ramen's not my favorite, but it's ramen, so I devour it anyway.
