Details: Located at 248 E 52nd St, New York, NY 10022. The official site is http://www.hidechanramen.nyc/
Hide-Chan is located directly upstairs from Totto Ramen. I don’t know if they compete or cooperate, but it is an interesting location for two businesses that do the same thing.
I came here for lunch during a weekday. I ordered the classic ramen which came with two slices of pork with noodles (you get to choose the firmness and whether you want straight or curvy noodles) and broth for ten dollars. I don’t know what their happy hour policy is, but they gave me a free extra topping, of which I got the soft-boiled egg. I also got an extra order of noodles for two dollars.
Overall, everything was good. Service was fine. Noodles were fine. Since I just had Totto Ramen recently, I can say that Totto was a little better, but not by much. Hide-Chan Ramen or Totto Ramen, both are solid ramen options. Also, for ten dollars, it’s a pretty good deal.
