Kambi Ramen House

I went last week to this brand-new ramen place (14st St and 1st Ave) by the owners of Minca. We had the pork broth and the spicy miso ramen. Now I have a great affection for hearty pork-based broth - my fave is Santoka over at Mitsuwa, followed by Ippudo - but I felt that Kambi's version was a little off. It was definitely thick and porky but had an earthy, almost bitter aftertaste that I didn't like. The spicy miso had the same aftertaste, though I admit I like it better than Ippudo's oversweet version.

However, at an average of $9/bowl, melt-in-your-mouth pork and surprisingly good noodles, I guess I wouldn't mind coming back if there's a wait at Ippudo.
