One Noodle at a Time in Tokyo
by possibly noteworthy at 7:21 am EST, Feb 18, 2010

Matt Gross:

Over six days in late November, I submerged myself in Tokyo's ramen culture, eating roughly four bowls a day at shops both fancy and spartan, modern and ganko, trying to suss out not just what makes a good bowl but also the intricacies of ordering and eating well. Above all, I wanted to know why such a simple concoction -- brought from China by Confucian missionaries in the 17th century -- inspired so much passion and devotion among Japanese and foreigners alike, and to thereby gain some deeper understanding of Tokyo itself.

Andy Raskin:

Success at the Tokyo restuarant Ramen Jiro starts with knowing yourself:

Can you handle the large size?

"Bob" on Ramen Jiro:

"It's like the White Castle of ramen."
