Ramen Row!

Kuboya Ramen & Minca On 5th StreetIs there a Ramen War shaping up on 5th Street between Avenue A & B?  In one corner we have the reigning Champ, Minca Ramen Factory & in the other we have a newcomer, Kuboya Ramen (in the old Le Gamin space).  I’m glad to see that something is going into this address, but do we really need another Ramen spot?

Kuboya Ramen 'Press Release'I love Minca & I’m pretty sure that the owner is not going to be happy about this at all.  Kuboya’s storefront is covered in print outs of a ‘press release’ of sorts.  The funny thing is that the first paragraph is the owner talking about how he (Sammy Kubo) & Minca’s owner have been friends for 25 years, yet this paragraph has been (improperly) redacted!  Classic!  I guess you ain’t friends no more!

Kuboya Ramen StorefrontWe’ll see how this ends up & I’ll be doing at taste test to determine which place I think is better!
