As the sign says “Voted NYC Best Pizza”. I won’t argue with them it is wonderful. Even the wood burning oven has received rave reviews from the other side of the pond.

They serve only the finest fresh ingredients. This is the real deal!!!

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.
