There are “no pretenses” at this “traditional” Japanese noodle shop in the East Village, just the “charming simplicity” of “delicious” ramen featuring “rich” , “slurp-worthy” broth, plus gyoza “just like in Tokyo” ; its “tiny” , “basic” space is “perpetually packed” , but “fast” servers keep things on track.

I'm generally impressed with the ramen from Minca. Actually just the other day I noticed that they make their own miso and soy sauce. I think that's incredibly impressive considering how long it takes to do that. However four stars because I would recommend sticking with their Minca dish. The pork broth only one was way too oily.

Authentic Ramen and Japanese fare on East Fifth Street, lower east side. Flavorful, delightful and friendly service. Highly recommended.

Really flavorful Tsukemen ramen (when the broth is separate from the noodles, meat, etc.). Noodles are good texture, and meat is nice and tender. Simple, no frills ramen place. I consider this place a Nguyen-win.
