    Suzume serves up "spicy butter wings" with a ginger yogurt. These reference the Frank's Red Hot sauce and butter of the classic wing, while evoking points distinctly further east. Six wing for $8. Read more

    Grilled Salmon Ramen: This soup works, mainly by not being too fussy, so that the salmon can shine next to the wavy, wobbly noodles, further flavored with scallions and kelp. Read more

    Start with warm spam musubi, the full sampling of tacos (yes, all 3), then a bowl of ramen. Both ramen options have a slight kick, I prefer the salmon - milky kombu broth that tingles with spice

    Suzume is a small, nicer, Japanese-Hawaiian restaurant in Williamsburg. The poke here is basically served in sushi form. You can order a wide variety of food from spam musubis to roasted salmon ramen! Read more

    Delicious ramen and other Japanese dishes in a super cozy and trendy space. The vegetarian scallion noodles were great and a warm temperature rather than chilled, which I liked!

    Go for the roasted salmon ramen with a poached egg. Salmon was cooked well and the noodles were delicious. Enjoyed the thickness of the broth. Get the fish tacos for a quick appetizer to share.

    A cozy ramen / sushi spot in an area w/ not much competition in those categories. And they nail it. Go before 8pm. It'll get busy after that. Order the Yao Yao Ramen. And the warm sake. Duh.

    I’m going to sound crazy for a moment, this veggie ramen was amazing! I love ramen, but also am not the biggest of meat eaters. I had my doubts, but they really delivered.

    Sushi, taco, ramen and cocktails! Casual cool intimate vibe. Sushi is tasteful and affordable, cocktails are great. All menu items are done with care. I'm a regular.

    My new favorite ramen joint! Both the YaoYao and the Roasted Salmon ramen are out-of-this-world good. P.S. The tacos are made of wonton shells!

    The ginger scallion noodles are delicious, and refreshing when it's warm outside. Get a poached egg on top and mix it well.

    Great food and friendly staff! Very nice atmosphere and quite hip. No beer on tap. Quite small and often full, so beware. Cool seating for 2: By sushi chef, watch him do his thing.

    The salmon ramen's broth is too fishy for my taste; YaoYao's is thicker, has a unique flavor. Nice noodles. Get the poached egg. There is matcha green tea not on the menu. Fish tacos were my fave.

    Small and intimate sushi & raman place. Very pleasantly surprised by their Yao Yao Ramen - a new spin on traditional tonkatsu raman. Once you try it, you’ll want to go back!

    Beautiful traditional Japanese vibe. Good flavors. Not a noodle shop, more of an izakaya fusion. Wings taste good but not crispy. Pork taco was lovely traditional Japanese braise + al pastor wink.

    Another East Williamsburg favorite. I switch between the rice bowl, the ramen, and the ginger scallion noodle. All are v tasty. Wash it all down with an Asahi or champagne of beers.

    Cozy and dark place that serves fun cocktails, sushi, and ramen. Try the tuna poké sushi, spicy crunchy tuna roll, YaoYao ramen, and chicken katsu rice bowl.

    The Yao Yao Ramen is one of my favorites ever! It's got perfectly chewy noodles in a rich broth with super tender pork, scallions, wok-charred baby bok choy and sesame oil. Addictive!

    Do the spicy tuna roll and veggie ramen with poached egg. I honestly preferred the veggie ramen over the salmon one.

    Exactly what bburg needed. A brilliant ramen joint (the pork broth is amazing) w/some of the most excellent sushi I've had in nyc. The scallop sushi was so heavenly that we had a piece as dessert.

    Best spot in all of Wburg for ramen and sushi. Cozy small room, awesome staff. I dream of the seasonal pea shoot salad. Also nice place to come solo and eat at the bar.

    Pretty eclectic mix - sushi, ramen & tacos! Small space, nice vibe tho. Good negronis. Tacos were decent, I'll be back to try the Ramen.

    For those who live in the area and see their lives as ramen-less lately, this is the perfect spot to chow down on noodles without having to worry about the L train being too packed on the way home.

    First of all, the service is A+. It's cozy and delicious. Bok choy salad I could eat every day and the pear creme brulee is to die for 🤤🤤🤤

    Not overly impressed with the salmon ramen - though my companion thoroughly enjoyed his YaoYao (pork) choice- with chili on the side.

    Scallop sashimi + roasted salmon ramen + bottle of Shiner = All kinds of win. Go drink at the new Blind Barber across the road while you wait.

    Really interesting flavor palette for ramen. Almost coconut brothy. Chefs cooking background is influenced by Hawaiian food

    The taco sampler was a great way to try all the tacos, but we learned soon that the pork was the best. Also the YaoYao ramen was delicious!

    It's a small place so there is often a wait at peak hours but it's really good. Try coming a bit early or late.

    Tired of ALL the other ramen you’ve had in NYC? Try the apple noodle ramen with Brussels sprouts and pickled carrots.
