ICHIRAN vs. IPPUDO Ramen: BEST Japanese Ramen Chain

  • Опубликовано: 23 дек 2018
  • Here is my comparison of the two chain ramen places in Japan, Ippudo vs. Ichiran ramen noodles. And when I first ate Ippudo ramen in New York, I didn't like it as much but once I tried it in Japan Ippudo completely changed my perspectives on it. But... I will always love Ichiran no matter what.

    The great Ippudo vs Ichiran debate. I think its just personal taste. If you watched Chris Broad he prefers Ippudo. Ive only had Ippudo and thought it was great but when I am in Japan, I prefer the mom and pop places ALWAYS over chain tens

    I went to Ippudo in London (Embankment branch) on my own and got the classic ramen. It's hard to describe but it was a really warm and welcoming experience in general. I used to go to Kanada Ya a lot, and now I'm completely converted to Ippudo.

    Ichiran is a tourist trap, most mediocre ramen in Japan. It's basically instant noodles with tissue thin BBQ pork. Cheap ramen places that cost half as much are 1000x better.

    I tried ippudo in singapore, and my first respond was there’s no way this could be compare to ichiran. however, ichiran in taiwan’s not as good as the one in japan, too. i might have to give the real ippudo another chance after seeing this video of yours.

    Mike, try Bannai Shokudo in Kitakata. As you know, you have Sapporo, Hakata and Kitakata for ramen in Japan as the main places. There are Bannai shops all over now but I prefer the one in Kitakata. The Charsiu Men is the bomb. I just got back form Japan yesterday and I'm aching to go back already. I went to Ippudo and another called Furaikyo in Akihabara. Not overly impressed with either. I don't like straight narrow noodles.
