I have to take a quick break from Living The Ramen Dream to let you know about the epic ramen article in the New York Times today. It was written by Matt Gross and is titled One Noodle at a Time in Tokyo. It features my ramen buddies Brian from ramenadventures.com and Nate from ramenate.com who have recently begun to dominate the Tokyo ramen scene. This is quite possibly the best article ever written about ramen in the English-speaking world. Matt does a really great job of describing his six-day adventure of consuming the best of the best. He even visits my two favorite ramen shops–Bassanova and Ivan Ramen (not just saying that cuz I work there). This is a big step for ramen. I’m just happy to be a part of it.
