Ivan Ramen: Love, Obsession, and Recipes from Tokyo’s Most Unlikely Noodle Joint


If you think of cheap college food when you hear “ramen,” you’re missing out on some incredibly tasty eating.

A chef friend of mine introduced me to gourmet ramen many months ago, and I’ve really come to enjoy it. Ramen cuisine not only offers a variety of exotic, delicious combinations of ingredients and flavor, the macros are often very fitness-friendly.

I’m recommending this cookbook in particular because Ivan Orkin is simply the king of ramen, and although I haven’t tried his recipes yet (the book releases in a few days), I already know they’re going to be out-of-this-world good.

His story is cool too–he’s a Jewish dude from New York who decided to move to Tokyo and open a ramen shop. As a foreigner, he was given short shrift…but then people tasted his food. Word quickly spread and before he knew it, he was a celebrity in Japan, and people were coming from all around the world to eat his noodles.
