Shoki in NYC!…

Years ago, I made the trek to Sacramento to meet the man behind “a bowl of dreams.” Years later we’ve remained great friends and shared many more bowls of dreams.

This month at Ramen Lab experience A Bowl of Dreams yourself until the end of the month. 


You may remember that I opened a ramen shop in fidi two years ago. Unfortunately, it was a big mistake. Sometimes it’s just so hard to find a trustworthy partner. Fortunately, that shop has now closed and I’m ready to begin again with my own trustworthy team. 
Apologies if it sounds like I’ve been venting in recent posts. Actually, I have been venting. Thanks for listening. 


After making a batch of tonkotsu for my customer, I decided to take some of the leftovers and infuse it with niboshi. Tonkotsu + Niboshi = Ton+Nibo

It was pretty amazing. 

Salt + Charcoal = Ramen Legend Night…

I don’t consider myself “young” anymore, but when a well-respected ramen chef tells me that I am, I don’t deny it and listen to every drop of advice he has to offer.

I am forever learning and tonight was another great learning experience. It is my time not just to create but also to protect. 

Ramen Shack Revival…

One year ago I debuted Ramen Shack at the now defunct Queens Smorgasburg and after a successful winter in Industry City the shack has been homeless. But not for long. 

Soon to be back in queens with a whole new set of tools.
