Living in Tokyo for the last 6 years and being blessed with countless food epiphanies changed me. I moved there expecting to fall in love with Sushi in it's purest form, but I came back entranced by a seemingly simple bowl of noodles and soup. Ramen in Japan is practically it's own food group, so coming back to San Francisco's ramen scene which is still in it's infancy has been one of the most challenging areas of readjustment.
This meal is a culmination of many months of obsession, experimentation, and refinement. We finally have a bowl of ramen (Japanese wife approved) that we love eating and can't wait to share with other noodle lovers!
