Bassanova Ramen

Bassanova – 76 Mott street ( b/t Canal St & Bayard St ) NYC

Ramen shop patrolling report!! Bassanova is originally from the Setagaya area in Tokyo, Japan. This place just opened in August in Chinatown. When I was here with my Japanese foodie friend Go (thursday night around 9 o’clock ) I was so shocked that it wasn’t busy after they got great reviews Σ(゚д゚ll ) I hope this place gets more busy after my blog #Bam!!! They serve three different kinds of Ramen and we had the Tondaku Ramen & Tondaku Wadashi Jilu Ramen. We didn’t order the Green Curry Ramen, which is their most popular, but the next day undercover cutie patroller #2 Nam & her friend visited there and sent me photos (^_−)−☆ The deco is modern and not oriental style yet they have a open noodle counter seat like a Ramen shop. I believe that you must sit only at a counter seat when you’re at Ramen shop to fully experience the vive & atmosphere and of course as food blogger I must see the action in the kitchen. Average time for dining at a ramen shop in Japan is about 30 minutes and price is around 800 yen ( less than $10 ) but here in NY its around $15. But thats because people stay more than one hour so I understand why Ramen is more expensive in NY. Ramen has another name in Japanese. We call them “Chuka-soba” which means Chinese Soba noodles. Ramen originally came from China so it makes sense. Everybody is a critic when it comes to pizza and everybody has different preferences, and ramen is the same thing. My favorite noodle style is thinner with shoyu base or pork base soup. I don’t really care for Shio (salt) base and miso base ramen. I really enjoyed Tondaku Wadashi Jilu Ramen. I love that they added yuzu zest in the broth. This noodle was my favorite style which is firm & thin!! I like it (^_^)😋

Ps – Check out their beautiful noodle bowls!! All their ceramic bowls are imported from the owner’s hometown of Setagaya, Japan.🇵
