#1 BEST Ramen Noodles in JAPAN! FIVE HOUR WAIT!

  • Published on Nov 19, 2018
  • I still love Ichiran, BUT I found someone new. Someone who completely changed my heart!
    Tomita Ramen was INCRIDBLELY amazing!!! It was so amazing that I had to go back and eat there once more. Something about the shiny wheat (chuka soba) noodles, the rich creamy broth, and that delicate fatty chashu pork just blew me away.

    Hey Everyone! Thanks so much for chatting with me! Honest opinion, should we never do the premier thing again?? Let me know :-)

      Strictly Dumpling you’ve done ramen tours in New York, and California if I recall correctly. Undoubtedly the ramen in Tokyo beats anything in the US, but have you had Ramen in Boston?

    The broth was decent, and it had a nice strong flavour, but the broth goes cold after dipping some of the noodles, because the noodles and meat are already cold when served.
    Overall, I felt like it was a disappointment for the best ramen in the world :(

    It's about time you start packing and head to Sapporo Hokkaido to try the ramen there. I would highly recommend Ebisoba Ichigen and Ramen Shingen. I've posted other recommendations in my channel that you can also try if you do head there. Sapporo is indeed a food paradise. Don't worry, there's also 7-11 and Family Mart there for your egg sandwich and instant noodle fix :)

    I saw another video from someone else of food in Japan. One part had another ramen restaurant that has the best ramen, it's like a secret restaurant. I'll compare the two when i go to Japan. 😄 I really wanna taste that ramen you had. Looks so beautiful and yummy 😄😆

    I watch Mike for the food eating way in Japan,like in this video,if you notice at the start,he picked up the secondary food(or the side),using the back of the chopsticks and when he eat the ramen,he used the front of the chopstick.
    I know,not much,but it is still helpful, Thanks Mike ❄
