Okay so I asked for help on The Ramen Rater facebook page . I needed someone to do a voiceover for the Bottom Ten List video – in Japanese. Responding to the call was Shinichi. I thought he was in Osaka, Japan.
As it turned out, Shinichi is in Seattle and we arranged to meet up at my place and talk about noodles. He told me about Ramen Mania, a new monthly subscription box he’s working on with Mr. Yamato of Yakantei fame. Yakantei gets some of the most exotic Japanese ramen and makes them more easily available in one spot. Well, this new box will let people everywhere be able to try numerous varieties never before available here in the United States nor anywhere outside Japan before.
Here are some of the current month’s offerings – I’ll be reviewing them soon! Really excited to try these hard to find varieties!@ Thanks, Shinichi for bringing noodles over to my apartment! Everybody – go and check out Ramen Mania!
