Slurp. Yum!

Nothing beats the basic pork broth soup. Its got just the right amount of savory slickness that lets you know its made from real broth without it being overly greasy. It goes great with a sapporo.

Awesome Ramen in the City

Minca holds a special place in my heart among all the ramen spots in the city. It is kind of hidden and tiny but it is just so good that I want to go back again and again. I didn't try every single ramen on the menu but my favorite has been their spicy ramen, which is thick and comes with fatty soft charshu. Their miso ramen is great too. If you like clean and light broth, minca is probably not for you. Howev... view more

Best Ramen Soup I have ever had!

This place is supposed to be #3 according to some 2009 ""King of the Bowl Ratings"" (Rameniac). Let me tell you, it was the most PERFECT soup I ever had. The broth was flavorful and the noodles plentiful. I loved the mushrooms, corn, and the other special treats in the soup. The fried tofu was cooked to perfection. I eat my soup with this spoon/fork I bought at the MoMa store. best.invention.ever.

Melt in your mouth Ramen

The Ramen here is delicious and completely authentic. I always come here when i crave comfort food. This place is always filled with Japanese patrons which is a sign that they mean business when it comes to the art of making Ramen.

Very good place for noddles

Their ramen is so delicious. We have been there many times and never disappoints. Especially perfect for a cold winter. The place is a little bit run down and is tiny for its customers but the food is worth it. Simple, basic but good food.

Great broth and pork, noodles are special, thicker kind of ramen.

This is real authentic ramen. The pork is always perfect, and the variety of choices is great. I live very close to minca and i used to eat there almost once a week. I have to say that the quality of the broth varies depending on who is cooking. And that I do not really like the kind of noodles they use, they are too thick for me. This is a very special type of ramen, and it is not like what you get at most japanese ... view more

Awesome ramen

I've always been the person that is against paying $10+ for ramen noodle. After my friend took me to this place, my opinion about authentic ramen noodle totally changed. The broth and noodle here are very fresh, with alot of selections. The pork they put in the ramen soup is very tasty and tender. The shrimp gyoza apetitzer is simple and very tasty.. highly recommend this place.

The real deal

Minca is out of this world. The ramen is totally authentic , reasonably priced and better than other more well-known ramen places. Going to Minca is like stepping into Tokyo. All the ramen options are delicious though to my palate, you can't beat the spicy basic ramen with a Sapporo on the side.

Best ramen I've tried! - Esp luv the soup & pork

Love the Basic ramen. The pork so tender, soup so saporous. The ramen texture is usually perfect. But it was kind of hard the last time I went. But it was perfect after sitting in the bowl for 3-5 min. Also tried their Shrimp Gyoza - WOW!!!! I don't even know hot to explain - it is truly unherad of (to me). There is actually a shrimp in each gyoza, with the shrimp tail. But this place smells like gas.. I do worry. A... view more

Great ramen!

One of the best ramen places in New York City. The food is simple but very good. My wife lived in Tokyo and loves ramen so when I took her to Minca she fell in love with the soups. The location is out of the way for us but it is worth the trek down.
