Minca Ramen Factory remains closed on East 5th Street



Last Thursday, an EVG reader noted that the popular Minca Ramen Factory on East Fifth Street just west of Avenue B had been closed for days.

And last night, Minca remained dark... there is a note up now, pointing to some plumbing work...



There's no word on how long Minca might need to stay closed. Plumbing-related issues around the neighborhood haven't been on any kind of fast-track these days.

Mina's sister restaurant, Kambi Ramen House, is open at 351 E. 14th St.

Word from of friend of mine who lives in the building is that the "plumbing" problem is a gas leak, and that the building has had multiple gas-related issues in the last months.

Yes, that's true. We live in the building, and we called in the leak. The fire department came immediately, and Con Ed shut off the gas to the restaurant. The owner of Minca had a licensed plumber in there immediately, but who knows how long it will take for Con Ed to turn the gas back on.

Takes about a month- we're in the middle of it at 32 St. Marks.

It's still closed almost 2 months later! I wonder when ConEd will fix the issue.
