The unlikely story of Ivan Orkin — the Jewish kid from Long Island who made it big in the Tokyo ramen scene — is food lore legend. In 2013, the legend came back home. Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop is the perfect spot for slurping noodles and drinking a cold beer. If you’re on a date and want to skip the slurping, the appetizers are just as good and (maybe) more inventive.
Eat out for a cause! Chef Ivan Orkin has put together a prix-fixe menu — that includes a special miso butter mazemen with shimeji mushroom — available to diners between May 4 - May 13. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to No Kid Hungry.
