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.

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.
