Tonchin NYC- Michelin Star Ramen

Hi friends, happy Monday! Hope you all stayed warm this weekend! The cold weather had Jon and I craving some ramen, so we decided to check out the Michelin star restaurant Tonchin. Itโ€™s conveniently located near Penn Station and Madison Square Garden which makes the restaurant easily accessible from almost every subway line. Jon and I went around 4pm on a Saturday for a late lunch and it was pretty crowded, always a good sign! We waited about fifteen minutes and then got seated at a more private spot at the end of the bar.fullsizeoutput_23c5

We started with some drinks, I got the house white wine and Jon got the Toki Whisky Highball. We figured we might as well because it was technically happy hour ๐Ÿ˜‰


For appetizers, Jon and I shared the Tonchin Chicken Tsukune bun. We usually start out with some type of bun at a ramen/noodle restaurant and this one was delicious! It was different than other ones Iโ€™ve had because it wasnโ€™t as sweet.


For entrees, I ordered the Tonchin Classic Tokyo Tonkotsu Ramen with homemade noodles, tokyo tonkotsu broth, roasted pork, egg, scallion, menma, and seaweed. The broth was the best Iโ€™ve ever had! My only complaint was that there wasnโ€™t that much pork, but I was very full afterwards! It was the perfect meal for a chilly day!fullsizeoutput_23c8fullsizeoutput_23c2

Jon ordered the Spicy Tan Tan Ramen with homemade noodles, tokyo tonkotsu broth, roasted pork, egg, scallion, menma, crushed nuts, miso, and chili pepper. Jonโ€™s thoughts: it was very good, but equally spicy!fullsizeoutput_23bf

We both thought Tonchinโ€™s ramen was the best weโ€™ve ever had! The prices were very reasonable for a Michelin star restaurant, our entrees were both a little less than $20. Iโ€™d highly recommend trying out Tonchin, especially on a chilly day!

  1. I need a translator for this meal. I still haven’t figured out what you ate and I sure hope you didn’t have to use chop sticks. ๐Ÿ™‚
