I love Japanese noodle houses! Went to MINCA in the East Village and enjoyed it quite a bit.
WOULD LOVE TO DISCOVER OTHER GREAT NOODLE HOUSES in Manhattan(does not matter which neighborhood)!!
Just to note: I have a craving for the FAT/THICK HOMEMADE NOODLES in addition to the ramen. (Sorry: I don't know the Japanese word for the thick noodles.)
Thanks for your time!
