There’s absolutely nothing about vegan ramen that sounds appealing. But make no doubt about it, Ramen Hood is fantastic. The Grand Central Market stall makes their broth from kelp and mushrooms, and somehow it’s delicious. The end result is a lighter ramen still packed with flavor that doesn’t require an hour-long nap immediately afterwards. And yes, that’s an egg you see floating on top, but it’s also somehow vegan.
