      The soup is there to season the noodles and toppings, nothing more. Once you eat the solids you're not meant to gorge on the rest of the liquid salt and umami bomb. This is a massive pleb filter.

      Then why does anime show people literally draining the bowls into their mouths? Or why do they give you a soup spoon if not to enjoy the broth? Chopsticks are all you need if you weren't to eat the broth.

        Japanese ramen broth is adjusted to be salty and thick for eating only noodles.
        So why are spoons provided?
        It is offered to taste a little
        or served to eat without slurping.
        However, there are those who eat all the broth like anime .

    No. The fact of the matter is if you haven't been to Japan you don't know the true quality of ramen. Even further than that, if you DID go to Japan, if you only ate at Ichiran and Ippudo that doesn't count either.
    Ramen may be a food developed by Chinese immigrants in the post war period, but it has been made distinctly Japanese. There are many regional ramen styles and ramen has contributed strongly the economies of many of these regions.
    There are thousands of ramen shops in tokyo alone. It is a extremely deep, extremely important food to the Japanese and the competition is among the most intense in the world of restaurants. Shops constantly innovate and increase the quality of their ingredients while remaining affordable.
    Ramen is one of Japans and by extension humanities greatest food achievments and this is just objective fact.
    You can't argue with me if you haven't been to Japan and eaten at at least ramen from over 150 shops in Japan like me.

        Nice non argument. In fact I would go so far as to say that was a non-statment. it is meaningless. it isn't your own thought. All you can do is parrot meme templates and predevloped responses and retorts because you have let this website rob you of your free thought, if you even had any to begin with.
        I don't have to be Japanese to recognize good world class food when I see it and exprience it in the country of its origin.

          have you been to the 150 best pasta restaurants in Italy, the best pho restaurants in Vietnam, the best taco restaurants etc. etc.? Probably not. Yet you fixate on one dish that YOU prefer as if that proves anything.

          Other people will have different preferences, based on what they had traveling or in major cities, without loss of generality.

          I believe we are past peak ramen hype already.

            but more and more authentic Japanese restaurants are opening up down here in Texas so I assume the market is still quite viable

    Japanese have weird taste and they like putting mayo, okonomiyaki sauce, seaweed, bonito flakes, all over everything. And they like slimy textures that most people find repulsive.

    as soon as other asians reach the same level of civilization as Japan, their noodle dishes will easily mog ramen, because they don't have moronic palates.

    Even my local chain place -- which I admit is shit -- has the WORST toppings (menma, bamboo shoots, fishcakes). Any idiot could think of tastier things to put on noodle soup than that, but they have to go along with the ramen meme

    Underrated I think. Every shit ass town will have ten Mexican restaurants to every one fast food chain burger place even though Mexican food is always dogshit. No matter where you go it's always trash, but old ass boomers are obsessed with it for some reason. Ramen restaurants are extremely rare so you have to go to the big city for it, if they even have one. If they do it will be the only one around for hours. Ramen is practically unheard of in the united states outside of New York Shitty. Ramen might be good, but it's not worth living in the worst city in the worst region of America in order to get it. Ramen is just too obscure to ever catch on in America I'm afraid. At least salt and soy broths are manageable enough at home. Just wish when I was traveling I had more options besides hamburger except it's bad and thirty copy paste ass burrito joints. Best ramen is pork but that's a lot of work to make.

    Ramen is not overrated but like sushi, 90% of ramen joints are literal cash grab scams.

    Im not paying 25$ for some 1$ broth, 2 slices of reheated pork belly and cheap ass veggies on top.

    The one good spot that is present in my town has a japanese chef and he never over charges for ramen, for 15-17 euros you get something really good and he makes tonkatsu only once a month to avoid getting raped by gas bills. The miso and shoyu broths he makes are fresh and make all the difference in the flavor which you will notice immediately when you compare it to your average ramen joint using powdered broths and larping its legit ramen.

    it can be pretty good. but that's mostly because of the pork belly. paying 15-20$ for a cup of broth, which you don't even eat traditionally, you toss it. with some extra ingredients is extremely poor value for it's price.

    An authentic ramen chef isn't alowed to so much as put a spoon to liquid until he (always a He, women can't handle the strictures) spends several years learning how to hold it. They also won't grant access to their temples of cuisine to gaigin who cannot even wrap theor heads around the language; you can't expect someone who doesn't even understand the language to appreciate the finest of their cultural heritage.
