Best Ramen: 2010 Reader’s Poll
It’s time for the 4th Annual Midtown Lunch Readers’ Poll. Your nominations are in, and between now and the end of the year we’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.
For the previous 3 years we’ve called this the “Japanese Soup” category, because we only had 3 ramen places in Midtown and needed to pad the nominees with udon and soba. But with the opening of Hide Chan and Totto Ramen this year, we not only have enough places to make this a straight up battle between ramenyas, but Midtown now arguably competes with the East Village for the title of Best Ramen Neighborhood in all of NYC. Menchenko Tei has dominated the soup category for the past two years in a row, but with the crop of challengers will they be able to hold on to the top spot? Here are the nominees for Best Ramen in Midtown:
