2009 Readers’ Poll: Best Japanese Soup
It’s time for the 3rd Annual Midtown Lunch Readers’ Poll. Your nominations are in, and between now and the end of the year I’ll be asking all of you to vote for the best Midtown Lunches in a whole range of categories. You can only vote once per category (so choose wisely), and official results will be posted after the new year.
Trying to compare ramen and udon is not exactly fair… but you know what? Life isn’t fair. (And by that I mean, there just aren’t enough of each to warrant their own categories.) Solution? The Best Japanese soup category! Any one of the trinity of delicious old school Midtown ramen shops could take this one (Sapporo, Menchanko Tei, or Men Kui Tei), or will one of the new fat noodle upstarts pull off an upset? Here are the nominees.
- Menchanko Tei (Two Locations)
- Men Kui Tei (56th btw. 5+6th)
- Onya Japanese Noodles (47th btw. Lex+3rd)
- Sapporo (49th btw. 6+7th)
- Udon West (46th btw. Lex+3rd)
Vote for your favorite, after the jump.
