Lunch: cheap noodle soup?

I work on 51st between 5th and 6th ave and am looking for nearby locations where I can get take-out udon soup or something similar (not looking for chicken noodle soup, anything asian is ok). I actually like the korean soup at cafe duke on 51st between 6th and 7th, but they charge $8 + tax, which is a little high for lunch. Anything for under $6 nearby? I'll even go up to $7. Obviously I want it to be tasty, but it need not be the best in the city, just conveniently located and well priced.

      A bit of a walk, but Mee Noodle House at 53rd and 9th has a great 'Vegetable and Cellophane Noodle Hot & Sour Soup. A large, which I can't even imagine finishing, will set you back $3.25. Be sure to adda little Red Chile Oil.

    2. Sapporo has great ramen -- 50th btwn 6th + 7th.

      1. If you can walk 10 blocks. I'd hit yagura supermarket on 41st between 5th and madison. You can get beef/chicken udon soup for 5 - 6 bucks. Hing won like the above poster mentioned does chinese noodle soups.
