ZUZU Ramen Brooklyn NY

When I heard one of my Flickr contacts was taking on a new position as Chef at ZUZU Ramen in Brooklyn NY, I knew I had to visit. I loaded up the car with four hardy eaters and set out to try everything on the menu.

The Amuse-Bouche of Tataki of Bonito Loin Pickled beet salad Chilled Tomato broth  the chef really out did himself.

The first included:

  • Mini Pork Buns with Braised Pork Shoulder, Scallions, Cucumber & Sweet Chili Sauce
  • Seaweed Salad with Mesclun Greens, Cherry Tomatoes and Citrus Vinaigret
  • Pan Seared Pork Dumplings with  Shiso Seed Dipping Sauce

I love pork so I was a very happy camper after eating these wonderful first courses.

The mains included:

  • Hot & Sour Ramen with Shrimp, Tomatoes, Thai Basil & Lemongrass
  • ZuZu’ Ramen with Charshu, Slow Cooked Egg, Bamboo Shoots & Seasonal Vegetables in a Smokey Dashi Broth
  • Green Curry-Miso Ramen with Charshu,  Slow Cooked Egg & Seasonal Vegetables

We inhaled all the the mains; they were that good.  I’d have to say  the “Green Curry” is my favorite.

The house special desert was a refreshing ice cream dumpling.

I can’t wait to get back to ZUZU to see what Scratch has got in store for me next.
