Due to the many holidays last week (Passover and Good Friday), we had two days off from school. That meant, a lot of exploring in the city to occupy us. One adventure that the kids ALWAYS like is finding a new ramen restaurant. So after some research, we headed down to the East Village, to Ivan Ramen. There are many locations in Tokyo, but this one is the only one in NYC (and has been here since 2013). It was delicious, fast, easy, inexpensive, and fun to try. We will definitely go back again.
Afterwards, we went to a Boba and Korean Shaved Ice place, Lazy Sundaes, that was two doors down. A HUGE HIT.
Highly recommend trying both these places out — a fun way to see the city, and eat all different types of foods.
