  • Ramen has taken over the U.S. over the past decade, and for good reason-it's reasonably priced, convenient, and endlessly versatile. To get his noodle bonafides in order, Sean heads to Ivan Ramen for a slurping tutorial from chef Ivan Orkin and producer/ramen junkie Just Blaze.

    no matter how you put it, 15 bucks for a bowl of ramen is insanely overpriced.

    Ramen is not supposed to be haute cuisine. It CAN be, but it shouldn't be. In Japan it is their burger and fries. It's weird that everything that comes here from Japan ends up getting the snooty foodie treatment when Ramen is basic comfort food. And 27$ for a plate of spaghetti is ridiculous. Rich people are stupid.

    • Lukos0036

      I just feel sorry for the poor folks that live in the shadow of this oligarchy bullshit. I don't know how they can afford to live when something as simple as a bowl of god damn ramen costs ten times here what it would in Japan and still manages to be inauthentic. Dudes noodles were so thin they had no bite and looked like jellyfish tendrils.

    daaamn people don't understand in the comments, yes for good tasting broth it will take several hours too make. It's like how you would want to marinade a piece of chicken or beef for 24 hours before cooking. And it costs a lot because it's quality and fresh ingredients. You may compare how in Japan a bowl is only $7 but that's because the ingredients are more local and easier to get where as in New York it maybe imported or whatever the fuck idk i gave up mid way through. What i'm saying is that longer made broth is way better tasting than someplace that may serve all day making broth constantly fresh from the ingredients, not giving it time to let all the flavors mix in.

    It takes you 3 days to make it huh...well so does tonkotsu ramen in Japan and it's still 7-8 dollars.There's stupidly overpriced and then there's 15 bucks for a bowl of ramen...not even a big one either!!I've had some of the world's best ramen from Sapporo all the way to Hiroshima,the most expensive one was 11 dollars and it was a double portion of noodles with almost a whole liter of broth and 5 pork slices sitting on top.There is no such thing as expensive ramen,it's a daily meal for the people...know some shame for fuck's sake.

    • LucidDream
      LucidDream 8 months ago

      It isn't actually as necessary as the guy made it out. The reason the Japanese do it is because it means you are enjoying your meal. It's their culture, but not really a must do when eating ramen anywhere else. It doesn't quite enhance the flavor or something like the guy suggests. For the amount of times he claims to have been to Japan and talk about authenticity, he should have learned that. I think a gesture means a lot to the Japanese, more than words usually.

    It's very very rare for ramen to cost more than ten bucks even in Tokyo, one of the most expensive cities in the world, and most ramen there is 5-8 dollars. So I'm not sure how I feel about justifying the 15 dollar price-tag.

  • K H

    there is a standard in ramen making. you just went to the wrong places. i live in okinawa. you go to someplace like tokyo, or osaka, thats a dog eat dog place for ramen. My point is, you go someplace smaller, they will explain to you: soy sauce, salt, and misou ramen broth. you like all of them. 1 of 3 is your favorite. your thrive to try each ramen place you find to discover the BEST restaurant that serves your favorite. ivan is being a hipster with it.

  • Explodingtraps

    This is a major growing problem with cooks nowadays...that if you can get publicity you are automatically a great cook.
    This is just not true. I have seen him on Chef's table and mind of a chef too, yes he's passionate, does that make him good?
    There are so many shows on cooking now that they are running out of great places and cooks to visit, and some of the best ones don't even want to be interviewed sadly.

    Probably is good, but pushing for $20 a bowl? That Italian example was bullshit. "This restaurant scams people so I can too". Ramen's a food for the people, it's supposed to be affordable. Places in Japan offer better ramen for half the price. It's New York, that's why you overcharge. Own up to it.
    I don't know Sean, you couldn't find a single Japanese chef in New York to talk to you about ramen? Or did you just pick Ivan for the views?

    • René Flores
      René Flores Year ago +26

      Actually... most people are way off when it comes to how the restaurant business works. A Restaurant that makes close to 10% profit is super rare (they are usually at about 3-5%), so if Ivan is selling a bowl of ramen at 15 dollars, he would be making about $1-1.2 profit per bowl after ingredients, taxes, overhead, rent, etc.
      If Ivans average day is about 3500 dollars in sales per day, and say he gets 8% profit (which is crazy high) the amount that he makes is about 300 dollars, so he makes about 9k a month, after all the investments you need to put up a shop (safe to say it is probably around a couple hundred thousands), all the time he puts in basically working 15-16 hours a day, etc. I'd say he is right about wanting to charge $15 for a bowl of ramen, you are also paying for his expertise and master skills.
