Tucked away in Astoria, Queens is a wonderful little restaurant called Hinomaru. Famous for it’s ramen (Shio, Shoyu, Tonkotsu Miso Hinomaru), it brings in a rush of people throughout the day that’s looking for their ramen fix. The restaurant has a Michelin Star, which is very difficult to receive and is considered one of the most prestigious ratings to obtain.

The Atmosphere at HinoMaru

HinoMaru is located in an unexpected area. It’s surrounded by Mediterranean restaurants, so it’s very surprising to find this gem in the vicinity. Most Japanese restaurants in the area are located near the Broadway station. As you walk in, you’ll notice the hardwood which gives it a nice aesthetic. There’s also a bar that faces the open kitchen. Another thing you’ll notice is the amazing aroma of the ramen broth.

Our Meal

For our meal we had their famous Hinomaru ramen (New York Style) and their vegetable ramen. The former dish is what got them recognized. The dish has cream pork broth, various vegetables, a fire ball which gives the dish it’s spicy taste, scallions, bean sprouts, nori and fish cake.

For non-meat eaters, definitely try out their vegetarian ramen. It has their delicious vegetable broth, bean sprouts, chinese broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, corn, ginger, mushrooms, and scallions.
