Spicy Coconut Broth Noodles

One of my favorite places in the city for a quick and amazing lunch is Republic just off Union Square, I first went there with a friend after we visited the Union Sq. Greenmarket on a lovely Wednesday afternoon. I fell in LOVE with their spicy coconut chicken noddle broth. Their portions are huge, but this specific dish is one of those meals where you can’t physically put your spoon or chopsticks down and you never want it to end! When it does, it is a sad moment for everybody! This is my version as I have always loved Asian food and this type of ramen is a real winner for me. I also love the variation in ingredients – the way you can make it so accessible to everyones dietary requirements (shown in method). It has such a warming spice element that is just perfect for the colder months and the coconut gives it such sweetness. I urge you to try this recipe and let me know all about your experience!
