    Good grief dude, you can sure put away some Ramen. Awesome. I’ve never had authentic Ramen, but if there were places here in the states that accommodated people in wheelchairs, I would love to go to one, although my chopstick game stinks. Lol I’d have to use a fork for solid foods and a spoon for broth. 😀

    Says one per person but you got two. Seems a bit disrespectful doesn't it? I mean, even if you brought your cameraman to be able to get 2 and ate both it's even worse. The cameraman is taking up a seat doing nothing while mike takes the time to eat 2 bowls himself, so 2 seats are taken for the time it takes to eat 2 bowls.
    I really hope that's not the case because that's way worse than just getting 2 bowls.

    Serious question. Is it illegal to re-sell those tickets? Say you're an early bird, you buy the tickets, and then when your seating time comes close you scalp them to passers by for a profit. I have no doubt people do this, does anyone know?

    It is interesting how the cheaper costing 'Michelin' ramen is far far better than the first where the cook tries to get 'visually' fancy by crossing his arms (2:10) as he puts the ramen in knowing he's being filmed. Taste will always win out and getting a Michelin is much easier to get these days than years ago where a Chef devoted his entire life to honing his skill and earning and keeping the Michelin Star.

    The sign CLEARLY SAID “1 bowl per person” and you still got 2! 😡👎🏼

    They look so delicious, especially the tantanmen.
    But, the price is so expensive. In Hiroshima, a bowl of ramen is only 300 - 500 yen.
    Also, you should eat more slowly. :)

    Do you know sir that in Japan eating noodles with slip sound is good thing
    But eating soup with making slip sound then people think your parents don't teach you good manners.
