Karazishi Botan: Next Level Ramen-Inspired Joint in Brooklyn

Right before the world went on pause in March, new restaurants and eateries in New York City were announcing its grand opening as they usually do. Karazishi Botan, a ramen diner in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn did just the same. Despite its cozy izakaya-style interior, Karazishi Botan is nothing like a conventional ramen joint. 

With the goal of further promoting ramen to the world, former chef of well-known Japanese ramen brand Ippudo, Fumihiro (Foo) Kanegae, decided to come out and build his own ramen brand. Taking his experience from Ippudo and techniques he learned over the years, Chef Kanegae has experimented with different menu items which resulted in varied inimitable ramens and side dishes.
