New Blog: Friends in Ramen

“Welcome to Friends in Ramen, the mad ramblings and reviews of a ramen-obsessed New Yorker who has somehow found himself in Osaka.  I’ve created this blog for foreigners in Osaka who want to eat good ramen, English speakers abroad who want to eat vicariously in the great east, or anyone else who wants to stop by.”

About this Japan blogger

“My name is Benjamin Weber, and I’m a New Yorker who moved to Japan last year.  When I lived in the US I had eaten some good ramen, but I never really had a grasp on the different styles.  After I moved to Japan my eyes were opened to the myriad ramen blogs and publications, and I entered the true world of ramen.”

About the author of this Japan blog

“I guess the main thing that attracts me to ramen is the taste…. (of course) but since there are around 5000 shops in Tokyo,  it goes without saying that many of them must offer something unique if they are going to stand out from the crowd. Whether that be an obvious choice in a quality product, an atypical ingredient, (un)friendly staff, a bizarre dining experience or even an ordering system using gibberish, no two ramen shops are the same. Well, except for the chains… But even they tend to vary slightly. And we mustn’t forget the stores that have a line out the front that, purely on the basis of there being a line, must be good. I know I’ve been guilty of joining a queue or two…. So I guess the main thing that attracts me ramen is the variety it offers and that each experience will be different from the last. “

New Blog: Ramen Tokyo

There are an estimated 5000 ramen shops in Tokyo alone. There are probably hundreds or thousands of ramen web sites and blogs in Japan, but they are all in Japanese. We’re trying to set up this site in such a way that visitors to Tokyo, or residents who don’t speak Japanese, will be able to figure out where to go and what to do to have a good ramen experience in Tokyo. We enjoy eating ramen, learning about it, and telling people about it.
