    Its not what I’d call gourmet, but the ramen/ramyun at Amelea on campus is pretty good.

    Ra Myun at Diaspora at Lane and High on campus. It’s super spicy and perfect winter comfort food. Also, a lot of folks don’t know that they have a parking lot behind their building. Wish I had some in front of me right now.

    The dish at Tensuke that I’ve really liked is the one with a pork cutlet. But then, you could slap a pork cutlet on nearly anything, and I’d be a fan.

    I’ve had one version of Freshstreet’s ramen & it was simple & delicious. Their broth was amazing.

    And I agree with the others – you can make a great soupy noodle pretty easily; good broth, some miso/soy/whatnot, scallions/cabbage/veg, noodles. Mmmm.

    Ha – thx for the video! Thoroughly enjoyed that movie – I’ll never get the shrimp under glass image out of my head :)

    I agree that I could probably make a passable version (and the posts here have me motivated), but I’m kinda looking for that 2 day, authentic thing, like this one:

    “DAY 1:

    Start no later than mid-afternoon.”

    Thanks everyone for posting – definitely some suggestions I’ll have to try – I’ll post a follow up.

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

    This place looks great :O

    There is the scene in Tampopo which my sister and I call “stealing the noodle recipe” – where she’s talking to the cook and asking questions to get him to reveal his technique. There’s a moment at the end where he pauses and realizes that he has given away his secrets.

    Well we do have some great Pho places around, and some good noodles inside other places, but sadly not many (I can count 1) noodle specific places. Kinda sad considering the large Asian population we have.

    No one needs to start cooking with Top Ramen, and shouldn’t. There are way more and better options, but you might need to spend 50 cents to $1 for a pack.

    I personally think that Indo-mie is the best, start with a good base, add chicken or bok choy, possibilities are endless. Specifically this flavor:

    I order them by the case, they are hard to find, Cam used to carry them but they tended to sell out of this flavor often so it was not even worth trying to get locally.

    I like the way a good Asian grocery has an entire aisle, or more, devoted to noodles. I’d like to be led along by the hand and get some Noodle 101 from someone who knows all the different types and their typical uses.

    *G* once at Jungle Jim’s I was looking at some fish sauce, and I was basically abducted by a beautiful Vietnamese woman who showed me a better brand in the Vietnamese aisle. That was fun.

    Freshstreet are doing ramen for lunch for the next two weeks at Double Happiness.
    $8 a bowl and they will have two varieties (Vegetarian and meat) each day.
    We had shoyu ramen with pork, egg, green onion and nori.
    11.30am-2.30pm

    Jobu Ramen Coming to Grandview Avenue
    March 26, 2014 9:40 am – Ayana Wilson

    Good bowls of ramen can be hard to find in this city. So when Michael Kopfman, who works for the Cameron Mitchell family of restaurants, came back from a trip to the Bay Area, he decided to bring his new-found passion for the Asian street food to Columbus.
