>>24098>I guess it's the short hair
I guess it's just me
It's not really a matter of having short hair so much as a matter of her body feeling like a brick sometimes, the way it's drawn
I guess it's just the animation style or something
Or maybe I'm just going fucking insane
What is this, food fanatism?
People have no right to live if they don't have the same culinary experiences as you?
Not at all, it's extreme envy. This guy is lucky enough to have a ramen place near him, yet takes it so for granted that he's completely let it go to waste.
I live in Berlin. If you think I have tried even a tenth of the various cuisines that are offered at moderate prices throughout this city you are sorely mistaken.
It is shows like this that nurture dormant interests in exotic tastes. But without such an impetus ramen is just another unknown dish out of thousands.
To be fair ramen is well known enough that I think most would try it if they could
It's like sauerkraut or foie gras or mapo tofu or whatnot
I guess so. Then again, it's not like most people have legitimate ramen places near them, at least in Burgerland.
Either that or a huge M. Even some Mr Noodle would be better than nothing.
Actually real ramen is pretty popular in the US, same as hibachi/teppanyaki, sushi and Japanese food in general. For a long time it was mostly concentrated on the west coast where most of the immigrant community was but in the past decade or so there have been specialized ramen restaurants opening up all over the country, and any major city should have several to choose from. It's not by any means obscure.
Of course, if you don't want to shell out $10-15 on a single noodle bowl at a restaurant you can make some pretty decent stuff at home with instant ramen, if you know what you're doing. That tends to be the healthier option in fact, considering how obscenely rich and salty traditional ramen can get.
You're right that it's not exactly obscure, at least in terms of people being aware of it; I think that anon just has a dim view of burgers. Still, a lot of us don't live close enough to 'any major city' to just go grab a bowl of ramen on a whim. Even where I am, more or less on the east coast, I'm guessing it'd be about a 9-hour round trip any way you slice it. God help any poor waps out in the midwest or mountains.>you can make some pretty decent stuff at home with instant ramen
Indeed, experimenting with adding real ingredients and extra seasonings can really help improve even bottom-shelf stuff. And nowadays you can order better varieties online for very reasonable prices. In fact, I just got a box of tonkotsu-flavor specifically for eating while watching this each week.

The tonkotsu-flavor instant noodles aren't too bad.

That doesn't solve the issue of the noodles themselves being complete fucking garbage though. The only way around that is to make your own noodles, at which point you're really just making your own ramen. Which is nice sure but
Don't you live in America where steakhouses serve like 36oz. steaks regularly
Nice pic, thanks. I just made myself the "make your own broth" variety. Results were mixed but generally good. My kitchen unmistakably smelled of ramen while I was making it, which came as a pleasant surprise.
I speak some German so I can confirm it was both broken and adorable.
Is koizumi's stomach a void or something? how can a girl that small finish three different ramen bowls so close to each other?!
Yeah, that's the gag. Although even real ramen isn't especially filling; not that it isn't satisfying, but two and a half bowls in an afternoon isn't really unbelievable.
Three bowls of ramen is a lot for a girl but a guy could probably do four or five if he was a big eater.
Für eine Ramenhandlung nicht schlecht.
I remember that time I ate 3 18 inch pizzas with stuffed crust on a bet
I had to go and purposely puke after my second one
I hate this show because I usually watch anime late at night and I always become supremely hungry whenever I watch this
That's what midnight snacks are for, my dude.
I get the feeling this anime is a lot more enjoyable if you already know about noodles
I might be wrong but I'm getting a distinct feeling of there being in-jokes or something that I'm missing.
You mean like the whole bit about what order to eat things in? I don't think there's anything in particular to get, it's just a more sophisticated version of discussing which end to eat a chocolate cornet from. Knowing the ingredients might help you picture the flavors better, but in the end it's all just shooting the breeze about food, which is pretty relatable.
I mean yeah but I feel like if you actually knew what they were on about it'd be easier to 'get', if you know what I mean.
You've taken the first step in the path of being able to eat good food every day because you're not a cooking level 1 retard anymore, good job.
Key words, "good food".That was a joke, but real talk tonkotsu is basically just broth, using broth for noodles shouldn't be anything new…or maybe it is. I'm actually having trouble thinking of any western pasta that specifies using broth for its base instead of salted water.
Chicken noodle soup
I was just surprised that my half-assed attempt at boiling some leftover pork rib and chicken thigh bones for a measly two hours improved not only the richness, but the flavor as well, THAT much.
Try doing it with duck bones or lamb rib
If you cook a good amount, throwing out bones is a huge waste
If nothing else you can just boil it straight and serve the broth as soup.
It's not that hard honestly, especially if you don't insist on making the noodles yourself. If you've made spaghetti then you can make ramen (it's not spaghetti, obviously, but the level of complexity is basically the same).
I tried making some ramen completely from scratch this week.
The broth, well, I didn't really have the proper ingredients, so it didn't turn out like any ramen broth I've ever heard of, but it was still good; a kind of dark, porky soup. The noodles turned out great, but that's pretty much to be expected since they're only made from two ingredients. I also didn't have much to top it with, going with just bacon, an egg, and some green onions, but it was still immensely satisfying. So overall, a moderate success, but not quite something I would serve to anyone else.
Having been inspired by reading up on Japanese recipes, I also tried making some simple udon soup the other day. It tasted pretty good, but I cut the noodles way too thick, so it was kind of hard to eat. Whoops.>>24775
Help planning the wedding?
>>24776>The broth, well, I didn't really have the proper ingredients
What kind of exotic broth were you trying to make, or, alternatively, what shithole do you live in? There's no unusual ingredients involved in tonkotsu broth.
Can't get pig or chicken feet, or really any chicken parts at all, at the local shop, so I had to go with just bones for both. I think it was the marrow in the pork bones especially that made it come out so dark.
I can get them, of course, it's just a bit of a drive. Next time.
Where the heck do you live that you can't buy a goddamn chicken? I mean pig feet I can kind of get, but chicken feet aren't that hard to get are they?
While I'm sure you can get them at a butcher shop or something, I don't think I've ever seen chicken feet at the grocery store.
Eating noodles is the best way to enjoy life
So the second best way must be to watch other people eat noodles.
