Thanks to Japanese expats, New York is blessed with many small cheap restaurants serving obscure specialties. Oden is a winter street food of dumplings-many inscrutable to Westerners-in a kelp broth. Another specialty of this serene establishment is menchanko, an infinitely expandable soup of udon noodles with your choice of add-ons.
