    My fiancé asked me to take her to a fancy revolving sushi bar this Saturday. I was freaking out like the uncultured swine I am and looked up the menus not knowing ANYTHING on there but Raman. After watching this I’m actually super excited to go!

    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.

    Btw, how do you keep fit with all the humongous volume of foods you eat? Work out in the gym daily?
    Take care , Dennis

    I always thought cheap instant ramen is bad, it kind of is bad.
    But Japanese instant ramen is actually pretty good. They sell real Japanese ramen at Asian stores like hmart and 99 ranch

    I'm always wondering how ramen can spread all over the world. It is just a kind of noodle, very salty but only salty. I don't not think a bowl of noodle with 2 pieces of pork worths almost $20. there are hundreds kinds of noodle like HUIMIAN, LAMIAN, DANDANMIAN, and etc. I even think noodle with egg and tomato that I made is better than any ramen. Ramen is not the end of noodle world. there is still an university out side.
