HOW TO ORDER RAMEN: Step 1. Select your ramen of choice and get ticket from the vending machine | Step 2: Give ticket to the chef and wait for your ramen to arrive


» THE RAMEN

1. AOBA GAKUGEI DAIGAKU: Classic Tsukemen (dry ramen)
ADDRESS: 2-21-14 Takaban, Meguro-ku, Tokyo
OPEN: 11AM - 11PM

🍜BROTH: The broth includes shoyu, kelp, pork for richness, and most importantly, niboshi (dried boiled fish - sardines or anchovies).
NOODLES: The broth is typically prepared first due to the amount of time it takes to prepare. The fresh noodles are boiled for a short period and placed in a bowl separately from the broth. The toppings go in last, on top of and into the broth.

🍜SANRATANMEN (HOT AND SOUR RAMEN): Black pepper, red peppers (tougarashi) and a sourness from vinegar come together in the broth. Toppings include wood ear mushrooms, bamboo shoots and tofu. Thinner noodles are used here.

🥒ABOUT BEFRS:
Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but currently call Vietnam home. I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. People either enjoyed my undeniable charm or enjoyed watching me eat things like coconut worms, and thus Best Ever Food Review Show came to be.

I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer. If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I'm a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.

Don’t forget to subscribe to Best Ever Food Review Show, so we can connect through food and travel and become Bestys!
