‘Ramen Ishida’ Takes over from Zing’s Awesome Rice on Ludlow Street

Posted on: May 3rd, 2017 at 5:12 am by

Ramen is to rice as Ishida is to Zing’s – the replacement venture at 122 Ludlow Street.

The departure of Zing’s Awesome Rice earlier this year left the briefest of vacancies. Not long after the business failed, ramen chef Yohei Ishida – a two-year veteran of Ippudo East Village – signed on to impart his eponymous noodle joint at 122 Ludlow Street.

From the look of it, Ishida appears to be one of the more vegetarian friendly ramen joints around here, with about half the menu dedicated to meatless green options.

Ishida plans to open on May 15.
