    Lke I already said in a previous post that was quite lengthy, and can be considered by most a rant, you are my favorite expert foodie. However, in this particular ramen comparison video I don't know how you can consider Ivan's Ramen to out taste Ippudo's or Ichirah Ramens (?spelling on both?), wherein the latter two show up between the top one and three spots on almost every internet top ramen comparison sites on lists of best top 30, top 10, top 7, and top 5 respectively, whereas Ivan's Ramen doesn't even show up in a couple list of the top 100 on any of the sites that I researched on Tokyo's top ramen places. Yes, it's true that your comparison testing of these three places was done in the US, but I just don't see how the transition from Tokyo to US for the same places can be that drastic. Am I missing something...?

    These days ramen is way overpriced. Back in the early 2000s you could walk into NYC Japanese ramen places and a bowl starts at $6 and priciest is $9 for big bowl with scallop and shrimp. Today, you pay $13 and it's nothing but a few slices of meat. The ramen itself is all the same everywhere. I usually prefer my ramen undercooked but some places seem to overcharge by selling on their al'dente ramen. Majority of places I have recently have overly fatty broth and not enough fish broth. Tend to be overly salty instead of having umami flavor.

    It's the same as ramen in Japan? Even if the chef is Japanese, the ingredients can make a difference, that's why I'm asking. Even if I cook local food somewhere else, it won't be the same due to the ingredients.
