Our Family Ramen-ya in Tokyo
Check out a video of Chef Satomi's cousin's ramen restaurant Ichi-Ryu in Shimo-kitazawa, Tokyo. It is in Japanese, but true to phenomenal Japanese TV quality it is mostly a video of someone eating. He ordered the "Wantan Men", their traditional pork and chicken blended soup with wonton and chashu. Congrats to Ichi-Ryu for still being popular in Tokyo 30 years into it!
