Ramen Quest: Kambi Ramen House

Kambi Ramen House
351 East 14th Street New York, NY 10003

So Will and I have tried almost every ramen restaurant along the East Village except for a few. I've been contemplating whether to try Kambi Ramen for a while and we finally tried it out.

We arrived around 8:30-9PM on a Friday night and it was packed. It took about 8-10 minutes before we were seated.

Two seats opened up by the bar so we were sat there. I wanted to sit at a regular table with regular chairs, but this was fine because we actually got to see all the action that took place and the production. It was quite exciting actually.

Homemade Pork Gyoza
We ordered and tried the Homemade Pork Gyoza ($5.25) first. It was actually pork and vegetable gyoza. The gyoza was pan-fried to perfection.  It was juicy and seasoned just right.

Pork Broth - Shoyu Ramen
I ordered the Pork Broth - Shoyu Ramen ($10.50). The noodles that were recommended for this was the thick noodles so that's exactly what I got. The pork broth was hearty and thick. The pork was excellent and wasn't too dry. The noodles were thick and the texture felt a little like pasta, slightly al dente.

Wahoo - Chicken Broth Ramen
Will had the Wahoo Chicken Broth Ramen ($10.50) and wavy noodles were recommended for his bowl and that's what he got.

Wavy noodles
I liked the texture of the wavy noodles because it's light and wavy of course. The chicken broth was lighter in terms of consistency than the pork broth.

I liked both broths. They were both hearty, rich, and packed with flavor. Everything else came together too.

This wasn't the best ramen I've had or one of the best, but I think Will and I return here if we're ever in the area to try. There's nothing to special to try, but I'm glad we at least it one shot.
