Ivan Ramen, with Gordon

Gotham West Market, 11th Ave and 44th St, NY, NY 10036

Rating: 4 - Just Fine
Visit #: 1
In brief: Not overly impressed this first visit. Fine, but not heartbreakingly divine. What are we missing?
01-24 Ivan Ramen
The strange brilliance of the Happiness Scale is that Olive Garden and Ivan Ramen end up in the same place. It has everything to do with expectations I suppose. M. tried a rice bowl, which was good but not especially amazing and I tried the much touted roasted garlic mazeman. It was too oily and while I loved the ramen, the broth was overpowering. I feel like we're missing something given all the hype surrounding this place.
