Now that the thread has been properly foodificated, maybe it is time to get back to the age olkd debate of pho versus ramen. I vote pho (more subtelty in the broth).

 

We're rich in Asian food, but are inversely lacking in everything else. Unless you enjoy a good meat pie or sausage roll. 

 

Pho slays Ramen on any battlefield at any time. No amount of pictures of food porn'd ramen is going to change that. Ramen is a drunken haymaker thrown in the dark; pho is a mantis-style death punch. Both have their positive qualities.

So it wasn't just me thinking their food was meeeh.

 

@nahneun wanna talk about that the time you were drunk? :)

i dont even understand why there's a debate about ramen and pho. they're totally different. it would be like arguing hamburgers are better than BBQ.

If you're in SF, go to Hai Ky in Tenderloin for the food of my peoples, and enjoy a hot cup of soy milk.

Ramen is good, but I sense a trend of very heavy and fatty tonkotsu.

hey i have similar tastes! i pref northern style pho. i like the lighter cleaner flavors and more focus on the broth and less on the toppings. i also dont like the heavy cinnamon/star anise. northern style isn't chicken broth tho. pho bac is beef broth. i think pho originated in hanoi too. i love the simplicity of it. no bullshit.

i also am not a big fan of tonkotsu although it's nice on a cold winter night. i really like lighter style ramen

Totto has....4 locations now IIRC? Go to the Midtown East one for the shortest wait. Hide-chan is right next door hahahaha. A lot of people don't seem to know that they're owned by the same person.

Totto is a chicken based broth, whereas you have a lot more options for both broth and noodle at Hide-chan. Totto's original is a chicken paitan ramen, but i only order the extra spicy ramen when i'm there and I just dump in the rayu right away or after one sip, so I don't really remember what the broth tastes like without it (damn my penchant for spicy food!). It's not really spicy though.

IDK, there are a lot of places to go depending on where you are. Many are worth trying out, but none are exceptional. IIRC @indesertum said Ivan Orkin's broth was probably the best he had in NY, but the soup wasn't served hot enough and the noodles were kind of meh. This was almost a year ago though.

Come back to NY so we can drink more beer and eat more ramen frown.gif

i think totto does both chicken and pork. they have different soups.

i've been to orkin's new place in soho. it's more progressive and fusiony, but still pretty good. i still dont understand why they serve it so lukewarm tho. and people complain about prices but the dude pays top dollar for his ingredients. pretty sure totto and hide chan and the other places aren't paying such attention to their ingredients so its a lot cheaper. i wouldnt recommend their mazeman type stuff. its really really rich and oily and heavy. the shio broth is pretty awesome. flavors are very clean and focused, but also rich with great depth. i still think about it occasionally.

go check out ramen lab in nolita (near lombardi's). the guys who do sun noodles have been doing a pop up type thing near their factory in NJ, but opened up a shop recently in nolita.

bang for buck tho super taste in the fujian part of chinatown is the best. if you time it right you can get fresh noodles and texture is a little different. then wait in line with white people at prosperity. project no 8 is nearby too.

also when it's cold, hot soba from cocoron hits the right spot

1. Who doesn't???????????????????? Sometimes, even after all these years since Primary School, I just need to have like 6 party pies.

 

2. Man you are so wrong. Pho is generic and dull - lacking in substance - too light, too dull, it's always holding back, there's never quite enough of anything. Ramen is just a full on soup: flavour for days, stamina of the gods, versatile and unbeatable.

 

3. We haven't even got started in Thai soups yet

Some chunky dark brown horn buttons might be nice.  ie. quite rustic, some slight contrast against the black cord.

 

I'm thinking of the kind of thing SEH Kelly uses (like on these black corduroy trousers).  And the dark brown (Corozo?) buttons used on my black suede Soloist jacket, which work nicely.

 

So maybe something a bit like this? (from a rapid, cursory google)

Yeah, I was gonna say the thickest, darkest horn buttons you can find.

You can't really compare pho with ramen-- they're pretty different dishes. It really doesn't make sense to just say ramen either, since there are so many vastly different styles of ramen...there isn't even consistency in the actual noodles themselves. Makes no sense to say ramen is better than pho or vice versa, because it's like saying hot dogs are better than burgers. I mean, the concept is the same but they fill two completely different places in food.

With pho you primarily have two pervading styles: northern style and southern style. There hasn't been time for it to really develop into something as nuanced as ramen, and honestly there are better Vietnamese noodle dishes anyways (bun bo hue, bun rieu, hu tieu dac biet).

I will say that it is easier to find a great bowl of pho than it is to find a great bowl of ramen.

The reality that ya'll all are missing is this: pho is amazing for breakfast/brunch, especially without the heaviness of hoisin or sriracha. A nice, light and clear broth for the morning, and then for dinner you have a fatty, savory ramen, topped with some fried chicken. They're not in competition, they do best working in the same day
