Photo by myself in East Village around 10th Street and 1st Avenue.
Rai Rai Ken is a tiny hole in the wall that seats just a handful of people, right next to a tiny open kitchen. Some of the walls are covered in Buddhist or Shinto text.
Rai Rai Ken specializes in delicious ramen noodles in broth. In the summer, they have two cold ramen dishes, that are topped with treats like cucumber, sliced apple, sun-dried tomato, seaweed, scallions, pickled ginger and shredded lettuce. You are served your food by its cook as soon as it's done.
Here's photo of the exterior that I posted earlier.
Happy Mother's Day, everyone!
Mark and I will lunch with his mum (not at the above restaurant, but somewhere in Brooklyn). What are you up to today?
