Fodor's Review

It may have received less fanfare than some other East Village noodle bars, but the ramen at this tiny, cramped spot is among the best in the city; the fact that visiting Japanese students eat here is a good sign. Try to get a seat at the bar, where you can watch the chefs prepare your food. Start with homemade gyoza dumplings, then dive your spoon and chopsticks into one of the many types of ramen. The shoyu (soy sauce) Minca ramen is unfailingly good, but anything
