#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.

    What I love the most about this is that in Jiro Dreams of Sushi I think he had mentioned that your place will be a success if you can make something amazing but also if you can make it just as amazing every time and everyday. When you went back the second day, the meal was identical which blew my mind . Very awesome

      Yes, it has, but from what ive read and remember, there are some places in Japan where they keep the pigs and the meat so clean and healthy, that its safe to eat "rarer"

      On his second visit he films the machine.
      Ramen says 980 yen, plus the extra (dont know what is) is 750 yen, total 1730 yen. So its like 18/20 dollars.

    Is the chopstick snapping the reason Japanese Resturants prefer to use disposable chopstick over reusable ones? How environmental unfriendly they are. But i thought he will his 5hrs wait worth by ordering one of everything they have on the menu.
