Japanator Link Love: Waseda Ramen


[We continue our "link love," a selection featuring other great websites that share our interest in Japanese culture.]

I love food just as much as Dale does. Hell, this column was started on food. So, it's only proper to return to that field every so often, and Waseda Ramen is a site you'll want to keep bookmarked on your phonewhen traveling around the streets of Tokyo.

With over 120 reviews up over the past two years (and plenty more to come, it seems,) Waseda Ramen is a blog by Nate, who is attempting to eat at every ramen shop in the general Waseda area -- known as the "ramen challenge zone," an area known for its abundance of noodle shops.

The description Nate puts into each bowl of ramen gives you such a good idea of what the food will taste like, you can practically smell it. It's definitely food porn, and something I always end up reading not too long before lunchtime.

To see what I mean, check out his most recent post about Seihoku-tei. The food looks absolutely divine, and my mouth is watering just from reading his description. There are also posts about shops like Beyond Baba that will get you some good eats while in Akihabara.

Well, next time I'm in Japan, I'll buy you lunch/dinner/midnight snack if you'll take me to a good ramen place, Nate. Keep up the great work.
