Mew Men is tucked away on quiet Cornelia street, just out of the chaos of the bustling West Village. The small no-frills space is simple - long communal tables, an open kitchen and a towering stereo system. The Japanese menu is short but it has the essentials. For small plates you'll find fried chicken, pork buns, and an excellent "spring tofu" with mushrooms in a sesame shoyu. The main focus is ramen and they offer 7 varieties with an arsenal of toppings. Dishes range from traditional noodles to something more interesting like the Tori Tantan noodles in a house made chili oil & sesame paste broth. A menu of beer, sake and wine is available as well.
