    Ep. 25 - Black Dynasty Ramen (@blackdynastyramen) - Kodawari Ramen with Southern Flair

    Black Dynasty Ramen is a secret ramen shop in Nashville Tennessee doing Kodawari ramen with regional southern ingredients. Been a big fan of their approach to making ramen and what these guys have been doing. Their passion for food and ramen is infectious and I had a great time talking with them.

    Ep. 24 - Scott Lachapelle (@scottlachapelle) - How to Level up Your Home Ramen Game

    Ep. 24 - Scott Lachapelle (@scottlachapelle) - How to Level up Your Home Ramen Game

    On today’s episode we have a very special guest, he’s someone I’ve been trying to get on the show for a long time and I’m so glad he finally agreed to come on. We got Scott Lachapelle on the show today. Scott isn’t someone who promotes himself heavily but amongst people who make ramen, Scott is up there in terms of respect from his peers and his passion for making ramen. This episode is 2 hours long and aside from our talk about the NHL playoffs, its jam-packed with tips on how to make better ramen at home. I’m definitely going to apply a lot of the things I learned during this conversation into my own ramen.

    Ep. 23 - Mark Noguchi (Chef Gooch) - Talking Life, Family and what defines success as a Chef with Chef Gooch

    Ep. 23 - Mark Noguchi (Chef Gooch) - Talking Life, Family and what defines success as a Chef with Chef Gooch

    In today’s show, we sit down with the one and only Mark Noguchi who is lovingly known here in Hawaii as Chef Gooch. For people outside of Hawaii, which is probably most of you listening, Chef Gooch is the man here. He’s one of the faces of the local culinary scene and a true to life celebrity chef for all intents and purposes. At one point in his life Chef Gooch was operating 3 restaurants and a catering business here in Hawaii. He’s a graduate of CIA and has worked in some of the best restaurants in Hawaii. He’s also very well known for his love of saimin, Hawaii’s local version of ramen. So much so that he even has a local TV show about it called Saimin says which was broadcasted statewide on tv and on all Hawaiian Airlines flights.

    Currently, Chef Gooch is operating the Pili Group with his wife Amanda as well as teaching food and Aina based learning at Punahou, the acclaimed private high school on Oahu which has many famous alumni including Barack Obama.

    Gooch is passionate about food and life, and I was so glad he agreed to come on this podcast. Just a heads up, we actually talk very little ramen or saimin here, its more a conversation on life, making difficult decisions, family, and what success means as a chef. But I think this is still an episode you’ll all enjoy especially if you’re interested in pursuing a career in the culinary world.

    Ep. 21 - Sarah Gavigan (@sarahgavigan) - The chef / owner behind Otaku Ramen bringing Ramen to the Ramenless

    Ep. 21 - Sarah Gavigan (@sarahgavigan) - The chef / owner behind Otaku Ramen bringing Ramen to the Ramenless

    Sarah Gavigan of Otaku Ramen has become a true powerhouse in the American ramen scene and is one of the pioneers of American style ramen. Through her mission of bringing ramen to the ramenless, she has grown the Otaku group from a popup to multiple Otaku Ramen locations in Nashville Tenessee. 

    In this episode Sarah talks about how she got her start in ramen, how to run a successful ramen shop in the US, and her thoughts on how restaurants will need to navigate a post COVID world.

    I had a great time talking to Sarah, and I think this episode is super informative for anyone who has dreams or aspirations of opening up a ramen shop or popup in the future.

    Ep. 20 - Ivan Orkin (@ramenjunkie) - Ramen Lord and I sit down to talk with a Legend

    Ep. 20 - Ivan Orkin (@ramenjunkie) - Ramen Lord and I sit down to talk with a Legend

    Ivan Orkin is someone who really needs no introduction to ramen fans. He's a legend. As a foreigner, he opened Ivan Ramen in Japan and quickly rose to stardom there. After years of operating his shops in Japan successfully, he returned to the US and opened Ivan Ramen in NYC to critical acclaim. He's been featured throughout the gamut of media in both Japan and the US and its surreal that he is also on this little podcast.

    Ramen lord and I somehow managed to win the bid for a charity auction for Ivan's time called Ask Chefs Anything and while he was only required to spend 30 minutes with us, he went for over an hour. The discussion was incredibly enlightening and I can't say how much of a class act Ivan was throughout the whole experience.

Lighting a Fire

This podcast is stoking the flame of my love for ramen and my inspiration to try to make it at home again. The two times I’ve tried before it was so bad and took so much work I just stopped. I still try to eat at the best shops whenever I travel but gave up making it. Now I’m super stoked to try again and keep trying.

Thoughtful and well made

This is a great show that talks about real details on all things Ramen. I’m glad to have found this show. As a ramen shop owner based in nyc, I will continue to listen to stay on top of the trends in my craft.
