Have a seat at the bar at Mu Ramen, the noodle spot created by the couple Heidi and Joshua Smookler who used to operate from a nearby minimal bagel store, and overlook the kitchen where the ramen magic happens. This is a very popular spot, featuring 22 seats only, meaning potentially long waits, but that is something visitors are willing to oversee. How so you may ask, the answer is simply deliciously tasty ramen. Have a chat with the chef’s while slurping a Totally Chicken or Tonkotsu, trying to figure out if this actually is the best Tonktosu ramen in town. There is little doubt that New Yorkers love their soups and this Long-Island City spot is now becoming one of their absolute favorites, surely a drastic change from Heidi & Joshua’s old days.
