      That means the best ramen restaurant in the world. This is without a doubt my favorite place, and I've been to plenty of ramen places in the world, including all over Japan. There's also an Ippudo in Tokyo that is just as good.

      This place should be on your bucket list
      Those who follow fads go to Momofuku. Foodies go to Ippudo. You can get a Starbucks triple macchi-whatever for $4 on any day. Your best $4 is spent, however, on the heavenly pork bun at Ippudo. This is nothing like that doughy ball with chewy red pork inside. This is the Asian version of a taco, where light-as-air bread envelops the most tender and succulent slab of braised pork that you've ever tried. We each ordered one while waiting 45 minutes in the bar and they were so good that we elbowed those models out of the way to order another round. Wow. Simply stunning, no matter how great the deal. But once you're inside, you're in for even more of a treat. If you have a visceral reaction against ramen thanks to your starving student college days, this place will help you get past it, Mary. And soup will never be the same again. I swear they must boil down 100 items for five days to get the most amazing broth you'll ever taste. So rich, so complex, so nourishing. Can this place please bring me a batch when I'm home sick? Everything we ate was stellar. We have since recommended it to gazillions of friends who are going to New York. This place needs to be placed on your bucket list! It truly is a must.
