Village Voice's Description

Ramen Yebisu is the brainchild of veteran Japanese chef Akira Hiratsuka, who grew up in the far-northern city of Sapporo. His background is reflected in this austere noodle shop in the Williamsburg tenderloin that offers a mercifully brief menu, including only four soups: shoyu (soy), miso, shio (salt), and – most expensive and the place’s signature offering – Yebisu ramen, which sports a large wad of shell-on seafood in the center of the bowl, and a northern-Japanese-style seafood broth. We prefer the simpler, cheaper bowls. All use a unique form of ramen that’s been fermented for 48 hours. Skip the single appetizer, a strange invented chicken salad flavored with mustard and truffle oil.

Tips from foursquare

  • Time Out New York on 06/04/13

    Hokkaido-born chef Akira Hiratsuka ferments his noodles for 48 hours, which lends the strands a wild, funky character that marries well with the briny shio broth.

    Decent to great ramen depending on what you order. Miso ramen, shio ramen, and abura soba are the best of the lot.

    Delicious seafood broth based ramen. The miso is intense and flavorful. The soupless Abura Soba, which comes with a poached egg, is also fantastic.

    Yebisu ramen is a nice change of pace, but the miso ramen is shockingly out of this world! Try both! (But mostly the miso)

    I wish I could bathe in this broth
