Binging with Babish: Tampopo Ramen

Binging with Babish: Tampopo Ramen

Tampopo is a genre-bender ahead of its time, affectionately referred to as a “ramen western”. Like spaghetti western. But Japanese. Hence the ramen. It’s a play on words, you don’t get it. This 1985 foodie flight of fancy features a ‘ramen master’, who artfully studies and mindfully consumes his bowl of steaming noodles and broth. NOTE: I forgot to mention in the video, this came out absolutely fan-fucking-tastic. The noodles were tender but chewy, the broth was flavorful without being too fishy, and the pork was exquisite.
