Kambi Ramen House

Posted on | January 5, 2010 | 1 Comment

Kambi Ramen HouseI’m a really big fan of Minca on 5th street, so I was excited to check out their ‘sister-restaurant’ Kambi (351 14th Street at 1st Avenue).  It’s pretty much the same as Minca, but much larger & with a more open feel.  You have a bit more elbow room here, which is a plus.  We arrived early, so had no problems snagging seats.

BasicAs usual, I got the Basic which is a pork & garlic broth with lovely, fatty roasted pork on top.  There is also a selection of mushrooms, scallion & a delicious hard boiled, soy marinated egg.  The broth is salty, but not overpowering.  The garlic offers quite a kick, so it might not be the best choice if you’re on a date!  Neither is the fact that you’re more than likely to leave covered in broth!  Note; this is NOT a bad thing!

Spicy RamenMy buddy got one of the Spicy Ramen (not sure if it was the Basic or the Miso broth).  I tried some, it was nice & spicy!  Obviously, there are loads of choices for Ramen in the area, but I really recommend checking out Kambi.  While you’re there, make sure to order the gyoza, they’re very good!
