Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

IVAN RAMEN, 25 Clinton Street (between East Houston Street and Stanton Street), Lower East SideIt’s a great story. Ivan Orkin is a nice Jewish boy from New York who fell in love with Japanese food, earned a culinary degree, and then became a huge success in Japan re-inventing one of the culture’s most beloved foods: ramen.
