I've gotten, quite possibly, the worst bowl of ramen in NYC at Ivan Ramen. Sure, there's some pros about it: it's located in the newly opened Gotham West Market and it has the name brand behind an up-and-coming American chef. But this is not a place worth the hype; the garlic mazemen that I ordered came out lukewarm, with soggy noodles, and was horribly over-salted. The broth was completely one-dimensional in flavor and all the garnishes contributed nothing to the bowl. The one saving grace was the Pork Donburi, which has shredded pork and roasted tomatoes over white rice. In hindsight, I can think of many better options to spend $13 on; skip, skip, and skip again.

This spot is tucked into Gotham West Market and is certainly not the bell of the ball. The service was spotty at best, rude cashiers and mis-heard orders, there is a little finesse missing that the other vendors manage to have even given the crazy hectic weekend crowd. The ramen is heavier than expected and takeout is coming soon.. True ramen this is not.. I would skip it.

I've tried Ivan's mazemen at other events before and really enjoyed his mazemen. Checking out his first outpost in NYC, however, my feeling is a bit mixed (I ordered the Chili Eggplant mazemen). Hits: noodle (firm and chewy with a nice "bounce"); chasu (love the thick cut, much more satisfying than the traditional slices); roasted tomato; Ivan Palmer (drink) Misses: broth and the egg were both a bit bland for my liking; eggplant was largely missing in action My fellow diners ordered different ramen and donburi, and they seemed to enjoy it. I'll give the white fish donburi and garlic mazemen a shot next time around. They also recommended the yuzu lemonade. Food: 3/5 Service: 4/5

It tasted just like cup of noodle. I just unsaved it from my google maps app. Enough said.... Update I can't believe the NYtimes critic put this on his top ten ramen noodle places. I guess if you wake up every morning and brush your teeth with dog shit then come to eat ramen noodles here it must taste pretty good. NYtimes get a new critic. I guess that old saying is true: anything taste better then dog shit.

With the opening of Gotham West Market, Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop has also made its way to Hell's Kitchen. Once you enter Gotham West Market, you'll be transformed right into a big, glorified food court. With so many places to eat, which do you even pick? Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop is located in the upper right corner of the marketplace. Like a food court, approach the cashier, make your order, and grab a seat anywhere nearby. As far as ramen goes, Ivan Ramen has 5 bowls to choose from: shoyu, shio, vegetable shoyu, roasted garlic mazemen, chili garlic mazemen. I went with the shoyu ramen ($13), which was just right at the median price for a bowl of ramen in the city. I took a seat right at the counter, and within 5 minutes, my bowl was ready to go. The shoyu ramen came loaded with their rye noodle and their chicken and dashi broth. I was pretty curious about this broth since it was relatively on the unique side, and rye noodles was a different twist as well. However, once I took a look at my bowl, I immediately thought, wow, this is a smaller portion than I expected. Taking a bite into the thin rye noodles, they reminded me of Chinese noodles as opposed to the firmer and thicker noodle that is typically used. The chashu that accompanied my noodles was pretty tender, which is always a well welcomed treat. As far as the broth goes, it actually wasn't bad. Some might say that it's a tad on the saltier side, but then again, you're getting either shio or shoyu ramen. There definitely was a hint of that chicken flavor within the broth which you could distinctly taste. Did I feel completely satisfied though? Not completely. I felt there were just some missing elements. Whether it be charging extra for an egg, or missing things such as menma, those are all small tidbits, but nice tidbits at that. For $13, you get an okay bowl of noodles. The bowl is small, but then again, you don't have to suffer through a 30min+ wait in comparison to Ippudo and Totto. Then again, Ippudo and Totto are both a couple blocks away, which makes this place hard to justify.

I've tried their Tokyo Shio Ramen. It was not bad, but was a bit too salty for me. I could almost see all the sodium ions floating inside. I think they should lower the amount of MSG their putting in their broth... I had a real hard time to swallow the first few bites, since for some reason it cause me to choke. The lemonade is good, but it tasted like a regular lemonade. I don't know why they called it a "Yuzu" lemonade. The service was good and the food came pretty quick.
