Ramen flight? Get us on the next train to Jersey.

momofuku:

after the momofuku field trip to sun noodle in new jersey, we learned our new favorite phrase: ramen flight. that’s what sun noodle is calling their series of ramen tastings, created by chef shigetoshi nakamura. the flights take place in the ramen lab, which is connected to their noodle factory. you can find sun noodle products in bowls of ramen at noodle bar and má pêche. thanks to the sun noodle team for letting us tour their factory and taste bowls + bowls of killer ramen. 

Sun Noodle noodles are seriously good. They sell their noodles in Asian grocery stores (check the refrigerated section) so you can make really decent noodles at home. I think it’s better to make it at home with Sun noodles than go to a “meh” ramen shop. They’re a little bit pricier than other brands but well worth the extra dollar or two.

I wonder if the description is enough to attempt making the soup …

haparamen:

Jidori chicken ramen. Chicken frames, water, boil & skim. Add roasted chicken frames, onions, carrots, ginger, garlic, black pepper in a sachet. Reduce 1/3.  Remove veg, add konbu, cook out, remove. Add bonito flake, steep. Season with tare and salt. Served with rare breast, grilled tenders, collards, and a slow egg.

Hmm … even for me $110 seems pretty steep, especially since you’re required to eat at one of the chef’s cheaper restaurants before you’re allowed to eat at the restaurant that serves this mighty bowl of ramen. I wish Reuters included a photo of the "Five-taste Blend Imperial Noodles".

If chef Fujimaki does open a restaurant in LA (in August) I’m not sure the $110 price tag is gonna fly.

Chef Fujimaki and the $110 ramen

OK, OK, a quick Japanese Google search yielded this Japanese blog post with a (rather odd-looking) photo of the chef and the ramen in question. Reading the comments, it doesn’t seem like people are very receptive to this chef or his ideas about ramen. Comment #34 was particularly entertaining. (The original source of the blog post may be this article in the Sankei News.)

This doesn’t look particularly good (did it go straight to DVD?), but in light of her recent passing and my love for all things ramen, have a looksy.
