Trendy Korean noodle bar in West Village. Korean noodles, ramyun, is the Korean equivalent to Japanese ramen, and Koreans love their noodles just as much as the Japanese do, so it is in fact strange that there are not more Korean noodle restaurants around. In addition to noodles, the restaurant also serves a selection of modern Korean dishes as well as hwe, the Korean version of sashimi. Before covid, Jeju Noodle Bar did not take reservations, but these days, you will need a reservation to dine in. It’s a popular spot, so make sure you book well in advance.
What to order? Since it is a noodle bar, it would be silly not to order one of the noodle bowls. Add 1-2 appetizers to make sure you do not leave hungry.
Good for: Late dinner with foodie friends before a night out.
