The sister restaurant to Rai Rai Ken ramen looks like it will be opening in the next week or so. Manhattan's original ramen shop opened up on Amsterdam by West 133rd Street a year ago and construction on the adjacent commercial space next door started a few months after. Curry-Ya Uptown is the name of the new establishment which basically means curry shop in Japanese and should bring some variation to this dish to Harlem.

As with Rai Rai Ken, Curry-Ya also has an original counterpart in the East Village.
