When you think of ramen, it’s probably a boring block of noodles with a packet of salty stock. However, those 50 cent packs of Maruchan bear little resemblance to real Japanese Dish. One of the best soups you’ll ever slurp! While waiting to be served, you can play games such as 먹튀.
Styles vary considerably! Generally speaking Ramen is pork or fish stock seasoned with soy sauce or miso, egg noodles, braised pork, negi, seaweed and a medium boiled egg.
With concentrated populations and astronomical rents, Japanese restaurants tend to be specialized and compact. A typical Japanese restaurant is 1000 square feet with an open kitchen surrounded by countertop seating. Here is a little tour of one I particularly enjoyed. Cheers!
If you want to try Ramen in the Denver area, the best in town is Izakaya Den on Pearl Street. The Kizaki brothers are the best Japanese chefs in Colorado and his Ramen is arguably as good as any in Japan.
