I love Asian food so when this place opened i was excited, but not only for that, where else can ramen get taken to this level in Albany? Me and a girlfriend went on a Sat night and got seated in a booth immediately. They really transformed the old diner well. Not over the top in decor but nice wood and they transformed the counter into a large table that seats on all sides. Excellent idea to create more seating. The service was quick and the menu small, which I love. The bigger the menu the more shortcuts kitchens take. We got crab rangoons and pork buns as appetizers and both were amazing. I had never had pork buns before, but i'm craving them even as i type this. They meat was so tender and well flavored and the texture of the bun was light and a good chewy. We both got ramen. I got the Tonkotsu Ramen- Pork bone marrow broth, Chashu pork, scallion, fish cake and kikurage mushroom. I added an egg and pork. It was delicious! Such depth of flavor. She got Vegetable Ramen- Vegetable broth with scallion, cabbage, flammulina velutipes, mushroom corn and kikurage mushroom with an egg. She said it was so good.
The portions were big and we both took leftover ramen home. I was a little concerned about the price until i saw the bowls lol
Alcohol was a bit expensive so i would just get food.
