New! Mecha Noodle Bar in New Haven
I don’t know how I only just heard about Mecha, a noodle bar that recently opened up across the street from Jeera Thai. They have locations in Fairfield and Norwalk as well. I was struck by how young and hip the restaurant looked, reminding me of Ann Arbor’s Tomukun, seeming almost too cool for a New Haven restaurant. I love their cocktail menu and tried both their ramen and pho, both of which were wonderful, also love how they have kae-dama so you can really get your noodle fix. Service was prompt and pleasant, and they kindly separate the noodle from the broth when packing up your meal. It gets busy at dinnertime, but I can’t wait to come back and try everything from the pork belly bao to the alcoholic bubble tea!
