I have a reading in the East Village tonight, and I will have some spare time to get a meal before. I heard good things about Minca Ramen. Is it good? What should I order?
I love the daikon salad as a starter - it works as a foil to the velvety richness of their noodle soups. The gyoza is decent too. I tend to go for the namesake Minca ramen.. When particularly ravenous or when its cold out, i like the comfort of the toroniku ramen, with the extremely fatty and generously sized smoked (?) pork pieces. Beware. . . it's not diet food.
Charshu Ramen and a side of gyoza :) If the types of broth has you confused, I say go with the Basic, it's thick and, depending on your mood, might be too rich, but I've always been underwhelmed whenever I opt for the Wahoo.
If you like very rich & thick broth, then I would recommend you minca ramen or basic ramen. But if you preffer the light broth, wafu ramen would be good.
Also, try their homemade gyoza(dumpling)too !
