Noodles bars are all the craze here in New York (and probably elsewhere) right now. The most famous is Momofuku Noodle Bar, which draws crowds for its noodles as well as its famous fried chicken here in Manhattan. Recently the sou chef from Morimoto opened a new noodle bar right here in Brooklyn - on Vanderbilt in Prospect Heights, called Chuko. Opened by Jamison Blankenship and David Coon, Chuko's ramen wasn't the only delight. We had a great meal with several delicious appetizers, including some salt and pepper fried chicken. The ramen is great as the restaurant offers a variety of broths to mix with the noodles (we tried both soy and miso broths with chicken). Needless to say we were impressed. Last but not least, dessert of a chocolate macaron sandwich was a creative and tasty twist. Below were the highlight of our meal.
