January 5, 2008

The Los Angeles Times has an interesting profile on Rickmond Wong (if that’s not a true Chinese American name, I don’t know what is), aka the Rameniac, a popular food blogger on all things ramen: He’s the rock star of ramen. His blog includes an in-depth discussion of Japan’s regional styles of ramen, reviews of ramen restaurants, reviews of packaged ramen, and even videos of ramen being made and slurped.  On a cold winter day, a big bowl of steaming hot ramen sounds pretty damn good. I’m now really really hungry!
