This is the best news I've heard all week: Hog and Hominy is serving late-night ramen noodle bowls from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m., Thursday through Sunday.
I'm not sure if the soup will change weekly, but if all they do is serve what they served last night forever, I would be happy.
Chef Andrew Ticer told me that the recipe is based on one that New York chef Tien Ho gave them when he was in town a few weeks ago, and described it as "the stuff we [the H&H crew] eat when we get off work."
Our server described it as "chicken four ways" – chicken broth, a poached chicken egg, chicken wings, and – if I remember correctly – something involving chicken feet (though I didn't see a whole one in my bowl). There was also a tangle of flat noodles, seaweed, vinegar-soaked (at least, I think they were vinegar soaked) shiitake mushrooms, carrots, pig ear crunchies, and some amazingly tasty duck sausage.
The best part? It's only $10.
Ramen night at Hog and Hominy is every Thursday through Saturday night from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m.
