This past May Ramen Setagaya underwent a renewal that revamped both its offerings and its interior. Chef Takayoshi Seno who trained for more than six years in Tokyo was brought to NY for the renewal, and he has introduced a variety of dishes to the menu. Among these is Shoyu Ramen, whose rich soup is pork and chicken bone based and made with a mixture of four types of sauces and dried sardines. The Deluxe version comes with both premium Berkshire pork and regular chashu, as well as an aji-tama egg that has been cooked in soup for a day for full flavor. Mazemen is another addition, and this soupless ramen is made with an addicting mixture of Setagaya’s original sweet vinegar shoyu sauce and spicy miso sauce. The Vegetable Ramen is also a standout with its array of vivid colors. Roasted vegetables add sweetness to the potage-like thick soup, which goes perfectly with the noodles and is made with seaweed, bonito flakes and salt sauce. For big eaters, special set service allows you to add a drink and your choice of fried chicken, gyoza, tori curry or salad to any ramen for only $4.
Shoyu DX Ramen features two kinds of chashu, menma, red onions, scallions, nori and an aji-tama egg.
Just created mazemen has a sweet vinegar shoyu sauce and spicy miso sauce base – addicting!
Vegetable Ramen is beautiful to look at and delicious, with broth made from roasted onions, potatoes and cabbage.
Located in the heart of St. Marks Place, Ramen Setagaya has a newly styled interior.
