Let's say I know this guy. We'll call him Marcel.
Marcel is a ramenaholic. You think you love ramen? Oh no, not like Marcel loves ramen.
Marcel has traveled to Japan multiple times to meticulously research the art of ramen. The broth. The noodles. The pork.
This dude is so obsessed, that he pulls his own noodles, stews his broth from scratch for hours upon hours, and marinates the all-important pork loin to perfection. He even makes his own BUTTER for the topping of the butter corn ramen.
Yes, this man is my hero. He's a Ramen Mad Professor of sorts.
Now, what if Marcel has invited Umamimart into his home in San Francisco this Sunday night (4/18), to feast upon his ramen? Let's say I'm allowed to bring 10 special guests. Would you want to risk missing this, even if it was a hypothetical situation? I don't think so.
Become a fan of UM on Facebook for details, as they come to me. Gotta be a fan! This is VIP!!!!
Until Sunday, you may drool at his ramen (above). That would be his "Special Hakata" ramen, including spicy cod roe (mentaiko) and wood ears (kikurage). Mmmmhmmm. Marcel most certainly does NOT fuck around.
