There’s word that the mighty Ippudo NY is planning a second location in midtown west; no address yet, since according to Eater a deal hasn't been inked, but while that comes together, there’s news out of Ramen Kuidouraku at 121 Ludlow Street. It’s been serving its Setagaya-pedigreed noodle soups since the summer, but last week they added something new: Sushi. To ring in rolls like the Solomon — shrimp-tempura roll topped with unagi, salmon, avocado, caviar, and crunchy bits — everything on the sushi menu is half-off, as long as your pre-discounted order totals $20 or more. Ramen, pork buns, and other fare are still regular price. What can we say? We love a sushi sale. Have a look at the new offerings.
