Will and our friends tried the original Cocoron on Delancey Street in June and quite frankly, it was packed and the space was small.
Cocoron opened it's second location not too far from it's original location and I was hoping it would be different and it was. I met up with my cousin Jennifer for girl's night out and dinner at Cocoron since she's never had soba outside of home.
We came on a Tuesday night around 6:45PM-7PM and were seated right away. The decor and ambiance was very different from the one on Delancey Street. It was very modern in terms of decor and in terms of ambiance - relaxing and chill.
I wanted to try the pork and okra croquettes but it was labeled on the menu as "temporarily unavailable". After looking at the menu, my cousin and I placed our orders.

At first it seemed adorable because it was a total DIY situation she had on her hands and the set-up was cute. She mixed everything together, but after a couple of bites and tastes she wasn't too enthusiastic about her food.

Although my cousin didn't enjoy her noodles very much, I actually enjoyed the experience and my noodles very much so. I also like the vibe in this Cocoron more so than the one on Delancey street. I am itching to visit Cocoron again for their soba. It's just that good!
