Nakamura has become renowned for his tsukemen, or “dipping ramen,” a deep and rich sauce with noodles on the side for dunking. Chashu pork, spinach, and bamboo shoots are also included!

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
