I refrained from reviewing Minca until I've eaten there at least three times. Final verdict? GOOD, is the only word I can use. Everything was delish. Not much to say about how good it is, but the pork is to die for!

Went for the first time tonight and have discovered a little ramen gem in the rough. yummmm.

Definitely my favorite ramen joint on the LES -- much preferred over Rai Rai Ken (they have a decent Seafood ramen, but their Soy Sauce based soup ramen is not so special) and even more preferred over Momofuku (expensive, disappointing). Their miso ramen is incredibly unique and very, very tasty. Their noodles are done perfectly -- it's quite fun to watch them put the soups together if you sit at the bar. Their regular ramen is pretty good as well, but it's distinct flavor may not be something everyone is accustom to. Can be a bit crowded with slow turnover, so go early if you can!

I love Minca. It is the best example of Ramen that I have had in NYC. I find the Ramen to be of a very nice quality and the soup to be delightfully flavorful. Their gyoza are perfect.

I don't know about the ramen here. Yes the pork is melt in your mouth tender, but there is something funky about the way the ramen tastes. Esp. the vegetarian ramen. I like momofuku more for ramen. But they have tables here which is good. And it's pretty cheap too.

I will never look at ramen the same again. I am soooo addicted to the ramen here I crave for it twice a week. The prices are not cheap but totally worth it. The broth is to die for and the ramen has a 'bite' to it. This is the only place where I will pay more than 10 dollars for a bowl of noodles.

It's sad that this place is overshadowed by Rai Rai ken (which deserves all the praise) and Momofuku (which couldn't be more overhyped) but Minca is so worthy of the good praise. The pork is well done and slightly carmelized and definitely the best pork of any of the previous 2 places mentioned.
