Went to the charmingly named Mr. Ramen on First Street for lunch today. I give it a good recomendation - good soup, if not as life changing as handmade beef noodle soup from Mandarin Deli. I had the spicy pork bone ramen. It was, indeed, spicy, and also very orange. I deeply regretted choosing to wear my white sweater, but that is what bleach is for. The pork was pretty tender, the noodles were tasty, and the broth was spicy and pork-y. Also had gyoza on the side, which were crispy and good, but not extraordinary.
Certainly a good ramen joint, but not earth shattering. I'd go back to Mandarin Deli next time. As a matter of fact, when I go to Mandarin Deli, I'm going to skip the soup and just get 3 orders of the scallion pancakes, then go home and sleep off the grease.
