Ippudo NY

We went back! While we were planning our trip to New York, I had asked Howard if there was a restaurant he wanted to try or return to. He enthusiastically reminded me that we had to put Ippudo on our list of eats. We had made a visit there for dinner last year, so I thought we'd go for lunch this time.

We went in with fingers crossed that there wouldn't be a huge line-up. Luck was on our side as we only had to wait about 5 minutes for them to set a table for us.

Shiromaru Hakata Classic: the original silky "Tonkotsu" (pork) soup noodles, toppped with pork loin chashu, sesame kikurage mushrooms, menma, red pickeled ginger, and scallions.

Akamaru Chashu: the original silky "Tonkotsu" (pork) soup noodles topped with Ippudo's secret "Umami Dama" miso paste, pork chashu, cabbage, sesame kikurage mushrooms, scallions, fragrant garlic oil, and chashu.

Are you able to guess who got which ramen? Regardless, they were just as good as remembered them to be.

We had to order the Lady M Mille Crepe Cake.

This was just as good as Howard remembered as well. Not for me though! Now that I've made the cake at home twice, I prefer my pastry cream filling! Uh-oh, this had caused a divide between Howard and I. Since he doesn't like our homemade version, he just might not be getting it for his birthday anymore! =P
