Like Ippudo, Hide-Chan specializes in Hakata-style tonkotsu, the rich broth made from long-simmered pork bones, and serves thin, straight, wheaten noodles. First you choose a bowl of ramen: plain pork, garlic-scented, spicy, miso, and so on. But Hide-Chan's gimmick is that you can then choose the texture of your noodles--very firm, firm, medium, or soft--and the level of pork fat you want in your broth--light, medium, or rich. Even if you order light pork fat, the broth surface will still shimmer with small droplets of lipids, a restrained bay tasty amount. And we recommend ordering the noodles firm--when they arrive they will be seriously al dente; they soften in the soup, but not to mush. Spicy miso ramen features both pork belly and ground pork in a salty broth that's more tingly and peppery than chile-hot.
