Ippudo Ramen, Tokyo

We held our second “Marvel x Ippudo” ramen pop-up in Tokyo a few weeks back at Ippudo’s Minami-Aoyama location…

Just because we were eating specially-created bowls of Captain America and Iron Man ramen at the event, that didn’t stop me from enjoying a bowl of their famous “shiromaru” pork-based ramen between services…

Featuring two different kinds of roast pork…

Ippudo lets you chose between four kinds of noodle preparations, I went with “kata” or hard noodles, on the recommendation of the chef…

Also got an order of their gyoza with red yuzukosko for dipping…

This location will unfortunately be closing next month as the building is being torn down, but there are plenty of other Ippudo locations all around Japan for you to enjoy their shiromaru or akamaru ramen!

Ten Korean foods to try

1. Ramen: Ramen is a must try, if you love noodles this is for you. It is very fast to make and delicious. Korean ramen is very different from Japanese and Chinese ramen because the noodles are different and it tends to be spicier.  There are many brands however I recommend Shin Ramyun/Neoguri. I will have a recipe up soon.

2.  Galbi/Kalbi:

Marinated beef or pork short ribs. Galbi means rib. Made with soy sauce, garlic, and sugar. It can be eaten with different items, however I recommend Korean lettuce wraps.

3. Kimbap/Gimbap:  Korean version of sushi, can be eaten in two ways. Usually it has Korean ham, shredded carrots, spinach, beef, egg, and Korean radish. You can also add more vegetables, tuna or whatever you prefer. Recipe is on one of my previous posts. 

4. Jajamyeon: Noodles with a thick sauce called chunjang (a salty black soybean paste when unheated), diced pork and vegetables, and sometimes seafood. Dish is originally from China.
