Nakamura’s signature ramen is his light, restorative chicken-based torigara, which is based on a recipe that’s more than a century old. It’s deeply satisfying, and comes with plenty of noodles, chashu pork, spinach, menma (bamboo shoot), and naruto (fish cake)!
Chef Shigetoshi “Jack” Nakamura is what you might call a ramen savant. He opened Nakamura-Ya in his native Japan at the ripe old age of 22, and it proved to be so popular that he was hailed as a “Ramen God.” After decamping to America, he partnered with Sun Noodle (the makers of some of the best ramen noodles on earth) for a residency at their NYC “Ramen Lab,” where his creations were also met with heaps of acclaim, and in 2016 he opened Nakamura on New York’s Lower East Side.
Additional recommended toppings (not included): scallions, boiled egg, nori
