Ivan Ramen / アイバンラーメン

If you live in Tokyo and you are also a fan of ramen, then you would be sure to know who is pictured on this cup noodles.  It is Ivan Orkin of Ivan Ramen fame, the only American who owns and runs a ramen shop in Tokyo.  In Roka Koen to be exact.  He has also opened a second shop in Kyodo.  He has also written a book that was published by a Japanese publisher titled 「アイバンのラーメン」 describing his beginnings.  This cup noodle features a shio ramen.


Not bad, but you really need to go to his shop and experience the real thing.  I've written about his ramen shop and highly recommend it.
