I had dinner tonight at the Ivan Ramen location in the Lower East Side. The Chinese Greens & Garlic I had for a starter was very tasty. The pickled garlic was the perfect accompaniment for the _kailan_. For the main course I had the Vegetarian Ramen. The broth had a nice depth of flavor, slightly smokey. The rye noodles were cooked perfectly with just the right amount of bite.

Tried out the brick and mortar Ivan Ramen shop and compared to their Market west booth location this definitely has more options. Wonderful drinks as their ivan iced tea and lemonade were refreshing. Besides the ramen they had great appetizers. A whole fried shrimp, crispy and juicy with a nice spicey kick. Definitely the shrimp heads were a delight. A wonderful picked daikon with xo sauce. The ramen to me was a bit salty but the rye noodles are a surprise which i liked. If you are here go with the shio. Wonderfully cooked egg with a soft center. Overall a bit pricey for the options and food you get that doesn't stand out. For me it would be a one time visit.

Ivan Ramen is the only place in NYC that comes close to the ramen I've had in Japan. I've been a few times and everything has been great. I would recommend the Lancaster Okonomiyaki for a starter. As for ramen the Triple Pork, Triple Mazen is the best followed closely by Spicy Red Chili Ramen and the Tokyo Shoyu ramen. Fully loaded is the way to go (egg, pork chashu and a roasted tomato). Unfortunately the price does run steeper than most ramen joints though, but it's worth the extra cost.

Worth the hype and they take reservations now! Came for a 5:30 Saturday dinner and the queue was already 1.5hrs for walkins so make sure to anticipate a wait or book a res. My experience with Ivan's ramen was tempered by a mediocre experience at the Slurp Shop in Gotham West Market. The Spicy Red Chili here though was spectacular - flavors clung onto the noodles without being too salty. The rye noodles was also great texture-wise. Egg is a must add-on wise. The ramen here may not be traditional but it's damn good. Other recs include the pickled Bites and Chicken Paitan Ramen.

Great service from the boys at the bar; tokyo shoyu ramen was comforting but nothing to shout about. Might pop by to try the appetizers next time I'm in the LES.

All of the appetizers were amazing: the daikon salad, the greens with bonito flakes, the fried something balls: all great. But the spicy ramen I ordered was seaaaarrringly salty. I just couldn't do it. Apparently the chicken ramen would have been the way to go. The decor is manic: the impact is lots of colored LED lights and has a long islandy vibe, but the staff are great and the place has great energy overall.

The adventure of finding good ramen in north america can be tough. But Ivan Ramen was prolly my top 3 outside of Japan I had. The broth was simply great and the pork was perfectly cooked. Really, it's all we want in a ramen !

Good atmosphere/ambiance service. Pork meatballs were good. Ramen was good too. Maybe a bit pricey - for those two things, $30. Felt satisfied but there are plenty of places just as good for same if not less.
