If U know your Tonkotsu from your Shoyu styles of ramen, U may be surprised to see that at E.A.K. Ramen they’re fusing the two together in style known in Japan as IEKEI. The IEKEI style of ramen is huge in Japan right now (where E.A.K. owns around 40 stores) and is now making its debut in NYC.
The IEKEI style is a combination of Tonkotsu (a fatty, cloudy and pork-based ramen) and Shoyu (a soy sauce, clear, chicken-based rumen resulting in the best of both: a thick, velvety texture filled with a variety of flavors with much thicker noodles.
