LA Ramen Wars on KSCI 18-2
- Mattapoisett in LA Jun 23, 2013 05:30 PM
We just saw a promo of a show called LA Ramen Wars. For tonight at 9 pm. The promo said the show will have English subtitles. Since the rest of the promo was in Japanese, that's all I know.
Dommy and I watched and it was interesting to say the least but a lot of fun. You get to see the secret ingredient In Diakokuya's ramen, a bunch of funny Japanese correspondents and a guest shot with The Johnathan Gold.
Here's there list
3 Yamayada Culver
2 Shin Sen Gumi
1 Santouka Torrence
It airs a few times tomorrow but after that I'm not sure.
re: Mattapoisett in LA
I really like Santouka, but I think it's pretty sad when the best ramen is a run-of-the-mill chain in Japan. I feel like ramen is a dish that just begs for originality and multiple interpretations, which probably explains why nearly every region in Japan has their own take on ramen.
Granted, I still would accept people's favorite hamburger being In-N-Out.
I think they wanted to get a good geographic and style mix of ramens. I think by now everyone knows that Men Oh is perhaps the best ramen in the Little Tokyo Area, but since they already had done Daikokuya which has a similar style in the same area... they went with the fear factor aspect...
