#1 BEST Ramen Noodles in JAPAN! FIVE HOUR WAIT!

  • Published on Nov 19, 2018
  • I still love Ichiran, BUT I found someone new. Someone who completely changed my heart!
    Tomita Ramen was INCRIDBLELY amazing!!! It was so amazing that I had to go back and eat there once more. Something about the shiny wheat (chuka soba) noodles, the rich creamy broth, and that delicate fatty chashu pork just blew me away.

    Hello I just found this video. I was hoping to ask you a few things. I was reasontly at a japanese romen place in the U.S.
    I tryed to ask an employee if there was a non shellfish option because I didn't understand the menu and I am deathly allergic to shell fish.
    I tryed a translation app when I noticed they didn't understand me. That didn't work so I googled shrimp and other shell fish brought my hand to my mouth and shook my head no.
    The employee started yelling at me and pointing to the door so I left. Did I affend them somehow?

    The only bad thing about my Tomita experience is that the broth has a very strong bonito flavor and if you are not a bonito kinda person it will not be that good. The noodles are god tier though regardless.

    If you are ever in Japan you should try Ratchya (Dirty Ramen) in Atsugi/Yamato area or Yokohama. The Atsugi/Yamato one is near the NAS Atsugi Navy base. This is hands down the BEST ramen I have EVER had.

    PSA: I attempted to visit this place last week. The main shop is currently under renovation but there's a sister shop owned by the same Chef just down the street that serves the same Tsukemen, except that the cuts of meat aren't as great the ones featured in this video. Look up Tomita Shokudo on google maps. Shop opens at 10am, no reservations.

    Btw, their gyozas are amazing. I bet they would be successful even as a gyoza shop.

    What I love the most about this is that in Jiro Dreams of Sushi I think he had mentioned that your place will be a success if you can make something amazing but also if you can make it just as amazing every time and everyday. When you went back the second day, the meal was identical which blew my mind . Very awesome

      Yes, it has, but from what ive read and remember, there are some places in Japan where they keep the pigs and the meat so clean and healthy, that its safe to eat "rarer"

      On his second visit he films the machine.
      Ramen says 980 yen, plus the extra (dont know what is) is 750 yen, total 1730 yen. So its like 18/20 dollars.
