It's been three years since we last investigated the best ramen in New York, and we're getting ready for an update. Our winner then was Hide-Chan in Midtown East, but New York's ramen world has changed quite a bit since then.

There's a new Ippudo in midtown for starters, chicken broth ramen in Hell's Kitchen, and the surprising success of Yuji Ramen at Whole Foods. We have some new Japanese imports and some outer boroughs newcomers as well.

So that's us; how about you? Who's serving your favorite ramen in New York, and how do you order it? Sound off in the comments.
