Have you ever just walked past a line and gotten into it because you assumed there was something worthwhile at the end? When you’re near Union Square, sometimes that line is for delicious ramen, and sometimes it’s for a meet-and-greet with Justin Guarini. In Mensho’s case, it’s ramen, and it’s worth the wait. This place is small and sparse inside, but you’re here for the spicy lamb ramen, so focus all your attention on that.
