MEW MEN

OPENED1062 DAYS AGO

MEW MEN, a ramen spot from the team behind Atoboy, is one of the top new restaurants in West Side, Manhattan

The new West Village spot aims to add a little extra to the customer’s experience by not only creating the perfect ramen but by balancing that dish with the melody, harmony and rhythm of the music played while the ramen is cooked and eaten.

MEW MEN only cooks with ingredients that are fresh, all-natural, and without any chemicals or MSG. They offer 5 varieties of ramen including their signature ramen, The Shoyu Chintan (a variation on chicken soup topped with pork chashu, chicken chashu, scallion and marinated snow pea), the Shio Paitan (available in a chicken or seafood broth and is topped with pork chashu, chicken chashu, fresh onion and onion flakes) and the Kara Shoyu.

The latter is the spiciest ramen they offer and is essentially the same soup as the Shoyu Chintan, but has fresh jalapeño ground and cooked with the pork to add spice, as well as serving with habanero peppers on the side for extra heat, and is topped with a sautéed minced pork with a homemade Ra-yu.

Other dishes include Kara Age, MEW MEN’s take on a fried chicken, which is marinated for over 24 hours, deep fried in smashed cornflakes, and served with a homemade onion sauce and Iburigakoo Cheese, a pickled and smoke radish imported from Akita, Japan, that is served with cream cheese.

The musical theme is apparent in the restaurant’s decor as well as the sound system and is comprised of deconstructed music cases that are repurposed as legs for the dining tables and stage lights light the space. The restaurant itself is split between an open 11-seat chefs’ counter that allows guests to watch the chefs at work and additional communal seating tables in a dining area.

MEW MEN is located on Cornelia Street in the West Village and will also be introducing a lunch menu later this fall. Nearby Akashi and Megu offer even more Asian food options.
