NYC Hotspot Find: Hide-Chan Ramen
HIDE-CHAN RAMEN, MIDTOWN
Midtown is pretty much the most uninspiring place in Manhattan to work if you’re looking for an exciting lunch. But there is a hidden secret that office workers in the eastern mid-50’s have been guarding closely for a while now. Hide-Chan Ramen, a franchise hailing all the way from Tokyo (and sister to the much-loved Totto Ramen) is serving food-snobbish midtown workers amazing tonkotsu ramen that is not only quick and affordable, but can be enjoyed without having to line up.
Compare your authentic, flavoursome, piping hot Hide-Chan ramen with your sad looking, mass-produced Hale & Hearty soup and I think you’ve got a no brainer.
Best Bit: The tonkotsu ramen with charred black garlic oil is so rich and intoxicating you’ll be very tempted to reach out for a big glass of Asahi to wash it all down. No one at work has to know, right? 😉
