THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Menchanko-Tei Restaurant Review

: On a cold day, you can’t beat the restorative powers of a steaming bowl of Japanese noodles, which Menchanko-Tei serves up with efficiency and grace. It’s an especially good choice for lone diners in midtown, who can sit at the convivial, black-lacquer counter in front. For under $10, you can get the Menchanko luncheon combination, which includes a huge metal cauldron filled with tasty things: a rich broth, home-style noodles, shrimp, fish balls, rice cakes, chicken and cabbage.
