Minca

I didn’t feel like going to Redhead tonight I went to Minca instead. Minca was one of the first ramenyas to open in New York City. It retains a devoted following even as others such as Momofuku Noodle Bar, Ippudo and Setagaya have come onto the scene.


Pork and chive gyoza

Your typical ramenya experience begins with a plate of gyoza and a glass of beer. I opted for water instead. I’m not much of a beer drinker. I usually drink alcohol only when I go out to eat, and then only a cocktail or wine — and then only if I’m having a large meal.


Miso ramen with Berkshire pork, hardboiled egg, preserved vegetable, nori and corn

Minca is located at 536 East 5th Street (Avenue B) in Alphabet City.

  1. I was looking at some takeaway gyoza this afternoon and decided against them but those look absolutely delicious! Are they as crispy as they look? (The ones I didn’t buy certainly weren’t…)
