A friend in midtown, who is so shy she won't post, is asking for places to go eat Japanese ramen noodles in midtown. Now I know Menchanko tei is one, but there are two places I would like help on.
One is Ten Kai, a Japanese restaurant located on the south side of I believe 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. I think they serve mediocre sushi, and they specialize in live shrimp, but their "New York Udon" is out of this world. Nice firm noodles for Udon. Has anyone been there recently?
The other place is I think called Sapporo Restaurant, something like 48th between 6th and 7th...Has anyone been here recently? Its a down and dirty noodle place, people all sweating and slurping noodles. Wonderful stuff.
