Big Apple Nosh



I looove noodles. If I had a car (which I don’t, living in Manhattan!), I’d probably have a bumper sticker declaring “Will travel for carbs!” and it would be oh so true. So, when I heard of this ramen joint hidden away in the East Village, I knew I had to stop by. Kuboya, located on 5th Street between Avenues A and B is definitely not in my usual neighborhood . But was it worth the trip?

The tasting menu at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon was officially ten courses, including coffee or tea:
