Terakawa Ramen is a great ramen spot in the Flatiron/Gramercy area of NYC. They serve ramen, Katsu curry and daily rice bowl specials.
My favorite is the Terakawa Ramen, a pork bone based noodle soup & bamboo shoot, red ginger, roast pork, boiled egg, scallion, and kikurage (a Japanese mushroom). There is so much flavor in the broth so you know that they’ve spent days making it.

The tan tan ramen is also another great soup made with minced pork in a spicy sesame broth.

On the table are some condiments like fried garlic and sesame seeds, which comes in a grinder. A bottle of chili oil is at your disposal so you can make your broth as spicy as you wish.
If ramen is not your thing, I recommend the tonkatsu (fried pork cutlet) served over rice.
If you’re having lunch here, beware…getting a side dish (like gyoza) for an extra $2 will make you so full that you might have a serious food coma.
Happy hour is from 5 to 7 with 16 oz Sapporo for $2.50.
