Critic’s Notes

Sunny Yim operates his $65,000 Yamato noodle-making machine like a Maserati, producing some of the best noodles in town to bathe in his outstanding 18-hour pork broth for classic tonkotsu ramen. The slim dining room also attracts hipsters for split buns, with toppings such as kicky fried sambal-garlic chicken and duck breast with raisin-jalapeño chutney. Order the house sangría—an unexpected treat.
