Zuzu Ramen

There’s a ramen bar on 4th Avenue and Degraw in Boerum Hill?  I was surprised too.  Will I ever go there?  No.  Thankfully, this year’s Atlantic Antic brought this obscure Asian place out into the open, and I was more than happy to sample their “Mini Pork Buns with Braised Pork Shoulder, Scallions, Cucumber, and Sweet Chili Sauce.” I guess what I was impressed about Xie Xie Project’s seemingly strange pork bun sandwiches wasn’t really all that impressive; the steamed “taco” buns are apparently common.  I’ll endeavor to discover the actual term for these white starchy steamed patties.  Um, no I won’t.  Anyway, thanks, Six Point Craft Ales, for the special Atlantic Antic seasonal brew. And special no thanks to the man who interrupted us by saying, “are you Jewish!?”  No.
