I’ve never been a ramen fan but because it’s so super trendy, I thought I had to give it another shot. So for lunch on Saturday, I checked out Minca in the East Village (considered to be one of the best spots in NYC). I had the spicy miso ramen and it was very tasty but I just don’t like the process – there’s too much face time in your bowl. Going out to eat for me is the ultimate in sociability and ramen just doesn’t fit the bill on any level. And at 1000 calories with tons of salt, it can’t be very healthy.
Anyway, not my thing but in the spirit of trying new things – I did give it a shot.
