Menkoi Sato NYC

📍 New York, NY

A new shop in the West Village has opened advertising the specialty noodles from Hokkaido, Japan's most northerly island prefecture.

The restaurant specializes in Sapporo-style ramen: all three of its broth types (shoyu, miso and spicy miso) are chicken-based, and all come with chicken meat as well as chashu pork. Other toppings include scallions, bamboo, seaweed and sesame seeds.

The broths here are lush and especially with the miso you will find it hard to get a spoon that does not contain bits of meat, vegetables, or other goodies hidden below the surface.
