This wildly popular ramen shop hailed by top chefs like David Chang comes from an unlikely source: Ivan Orkin, a self-described Jewish guy from Long Island. Starting with a successful-against-all-odds spot in Tokyo, Orkin brought his ramen home with a slurp shop in Gotham West Market and the flagship location on the Lower East Side. His breakfast ramen with bacon, scallion omelet, and whole wheat noodles has garnered many fans.
