    I’ve been watching David Chang’s Mind of a Chef recently, and one of the eps shows he and a fellow traveler gobbling ramen in Japan – it looks amazing, certainly not the ramen I grew up with at 25 cents a package. Now I need a fix – any suggestions? Can’t say I’ve ever really looked for ramen as a destination food in Columbus – thx!

    Ramen hasn’t really become big in Columbus yet. A friend recommended ZenCha but I haven’t seen any around town.

    The stuff at Tensuke Market is ok, but it’s definitely not the gourmet ramen that you’d find in NY or LA.

    Most of the Japanese restaurants (Akai Hana, Basho, Kihachi, even Freshstreet) have a ramen, soba, udon dish, but to find a ramen specific shop won’t happen. I’d love to see one.

    That’s funny. We’ve hit Pho, Tensuke and Kikyo in the last 2 week because of the Mind of a Chef series.

    And Kikyo has a Ramen dish, which I didn’t try. We did have the Nabe Yaki Udon and Bibimbop which were great.

    Kikyo’s has taken a turn for the worst when they changed ownership.

    I like to get the plain noodles and build a soup around them. They come in the same wafers as the ramen packs, but I have a choice of rice, or wheat, with or without egg. I’ll use real stock instead of flavored powder, and include whatever good ingredients I happen to have.

    This. Head to CAM and surf the noodle sections(dried and fresh) Grab a tub of miso or any one of the millions bottles of seasonings in the first two aisles. Add whatever you have at home.

    Not in Columbus, but if you’re visiting Cleveland, Noodlecat is worth a visit.

    I think a pan-Asian noodle place like this would do very well in the Short North, Clintonville or campus:

    Ha, I remember when I was excited for Oodles by the Giant Eagle.

    But then… it wasn’t so exciting.
