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.

They had their noodle cart out front of the shop a few times last week. I got the ramen with pork/chicken broth and pork for $9. It was tasty. I’ll be back but I do hope to see the spicy broth next time.May 26, 2014 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #1019310

Do you slurp? That’s the question Mike Kopfman and John Franke hope to have the city answer when they open Jobu Ramen, Columbus’ newest spot for steaming bowls of flavorful goodness, at 1439 Grandview Avenue, formerly home to Mazah Mediterranean Eatery.

Still very very excited to try this place… but after reading the article some doubts have crept in my brain… hopefully I’m wrong.May 27, 2014 9:07 am at 9:07 am #1019415
This needs to be in there somewhere.May 27, 2014 12:15 pm at 12:15 pm #1019461
I am really excited to try this, but going to wait a week or two so the lunch crowd dies down a bit.
Hopefully this will help the average person’s reaction to ramen / noodles / instant noodles to be one beyond, you mean those gross salty things college students eat?
A co-worker got it yesterday when they opened and said it was good and he would go back.May 27, 2014 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1019554
Ramen is on my list of… too easy to make at home… list to actually purchase for 5 X the markup. Took some flack on here once when I said the same thing of Dirty Franks.
However, the topic comes up enough here I’m sure this will be a success with the right quality to price ratio. Just like Dirty Frank’s.May 27, 2014 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #1019612
Hard to think of too many things that restaurants serve that one couldn’t make at home for 1/5 the cost. Doing it well, generally a different story.May 27, 2014 11:16 pm at 11:16 pm #1019628
Well, if you’re thinking it’s going to be like packaged ramen, then you are wrong. Looking through their facebook page, it seems like they actually make their broth from bone, bonito, and kombu. It’s a process that is labor intensive and takes hours. I have lived in Japan for a year, studying abroad. Real ramen tastes nothing like packaged ramen.May 28, 2014 8:18 am at 8:18 am #1019653
Anyone interested in ramen should watch Tampopo.
