Ramen Thukpa Restaurant Review

: This West Village Japanese/Tibetan hybrid began life as a casual Chinese dumpling and soup spot called Super Noodle. It didn’t last long. And soon enough, the slightly less casual Ramen Thukpa was born in the tiny space. The restaurant’s focus, as the name suggests, is ramen, the Japanese noodle soup dish. But stick to anything Tibetan and you’ll be as happy as the portrait of the Dalai Lama above the kitchen. Chicken-stuffed momos are a fine way to start, followed by the signature ramen thukpa (“thukpa” simply means “noodle soup” in Tibetan): a bowl of spicy noodles, pork, chicken and corn. Service, both from the kitchen and the front of the house, can be painfully slow so don’t come here if you have an obligation afterward.
