Jin Ramen

Spicy tonkotsu ramen, Jin Ramen

Another weekend, another two days for exploring the city's denizens of deep depths, murky broths, long squiggles of noodles, shards of protein and spikes of vegetables. In this case, Jin Ramen, a restaurant more or less wedged beneath a Harlem overpass that specializes in porky Hakata ramen. 

The spicy tonkotsu (top) took the standard pork (rib) bone tonkotsu and reddened it with chili oil, a lot of chili oil, while the miso ramen (bottom) was mild and muddy in the best possible way, chock-full of chicken sausage and sprouts. There's deftness and variation at work here --- and the crowds have followed.
