if it's a 40-50$ hair cut, i'll give like 8-10 bucks for the stylist. regardless of price, washbitch gets 2 bucks.

one of my frineds used glenn jason and wasn't too happy. he said for 60$, you can get a cut that's just as good and not deal w/ the hassle of booking 3 months in advance and dealish with his diva-like demeanor. he also said the word "rock star" was thrown around about 25 times.



it was pretty cool there. good haircut, and glenn wasn't even there... i had trace cut mine, real down to earth guy, definitely not a diva.

I went to Hair Mates for the first time last week based on what I heard about it on here. It was great. Ive paid over $100 for similar service and will never make that mistake again. Everyone took their time even though the place was packed.
I tipped the lady 10 and the washer 3.

i tried setagaya last week

ive never tried momofuku so i don't really have a basis for comparison
but setagaya wasn't that great.

i think id rather go to the ramen place next to hairmates.

FYI, setagaya isn't japanese owned. most people who were lining up were non-japanese too.

nowadays, a lot of ramen places use heavy katsuo-dashi (bonito-based broth?) and i've never been a big fan of that trend.

I've given up on ramen in NYC too. I've been going to Soba Koh and Uminoie a lot recently. The akamiso at Uminoie is damn good.

koreans make decent ramen. a little heavy on the garlic, but good.

i'm talking both their ramyun stylings and their japanese repros.

they better be careful, lest ando momofuku press legal charges!

(and yes, I know that he is only the inventor of instant ramen, but I don't think anyone knows who "invented" ramen...)

origin or ramen is uncertain.

but one theory i've read is that ramen originated from the noodle carts in china, but their version didn't have soup in it. it was more of a sauce. the reason might have been that it was difficult to cart around tons of liquid.

haha, I may have been in line with you! My office moved though and now I'm only a block from Menkuitei and Menchankotei so if I'm really jonesing for some ramen, I just go there.

On a related noodle note, who's got the best Kistune Udon ?

Of all the crappy ramen in NYC, I think that Menkuitei ranks fairly high up. So it's like being a starter on the JV team.

Next question: anyone ever try that curry place that opened in the west 30's? I remember seeing ads for it but I haven't checked it out.

imo, their noodles are fine. but their soup (for shoyu ramen) is very thin -- not enough soup stock. and their gu (toppings) are refrigerated and cold. which makes the whole ramen cooler.
