Not sure if Nakamura has already been mentioned on the board. Anyhow, I very much like their ramen and the Ma Po Tofu, a perennial special. I think it's the best vegetarian version of Ma Po I've had. (Good rice here, too).

Thanks for the heads up on the mapo tofu - it's not on the online menu. I've had the vegan xo miso, which I liked, and the chilled vegan xo mazemen, which I loved.

This is the tiny place right next to the Willy B, right?  If so, I've had some good luck and some not such good luck here.

My first meal there was a mixed bag - I ordered the uni mazemen, which they'd neglected to mention on the menu had truffle oil in it, so I had to send it back. I got the curry ramen instead - not something I'd normally order, but I just wanted the strongest-flavored thing to get the taste of dithiapentane out of my mouth. It was decent, if nothing I was in a rush to go back for. The beer I had (Kagua Blanc) was fantastic though.

The place on Delancey close to the bridge.

 

I like the "chewy noodle" ramen options, particularly the Tontoro Pork. I don't like truffle oil either but Nakamura hasn't been too hit-or-miss for me.
