   Succinctly answers all Ramen / related questions
This book is by far the best. It also goes through all of the other things that go along with it, equipment, substitutions, ingredients, and toppings. Thanks to the authors and illustrators, too, for putting this together. It's great to be back home, having some fun with my kids and I will have great fun cooking! Highly recommended!

   WONDERFUL Ramen Cookbook
My daughter, who has a passion for ramen, was thrilled with the information, the recipes, and the comic book style of this cookbook. hello! If so, are you even familiar with ramen culture? Please pay absolutely no attention to what they said, because they are a clearly uninformed individual and really had no business posting a review for this cookbook here.
   Beautiful and thorough resource for anyone who wants to make authentic ramen
I purchased this as a present for my sister who is both a Japanese cuisine enthusiast and a manga lover. She absolutely loves it, the suit says. What I wasn't expecting was how much I'd like it, Mr. Dhaliwal said. The book is extremely informative and formatted beautifully. It's just that the interface is so user-friendly, it doesn't clutter or confuse. There are TONS of recipes to cover all your bases _ all the different tarés, various from-scratch stocks, homemade noodles, and proteins and add-ins like marinated eggs. My sister is an omnivore, but I am vegan and there are lots of plant-based options in this book.
   Gift for adult son with learning disorder
Graphic novels as cookbooks was just too good to pass by as a Christmas present for my young adult son who struggles with too much written information on a page. He absolutely loves the book. He had already been making his own Ramen Bowls using fresh ingredients, but this put him over the top with all the info he had never seen before. He now makes his own broth using mushrooms, onions, garlic and fresh greens that I grow in containers on my patio. We roast a pork belly every few weeks for throwing in the air fryer to crisp up the slices that go on top of the bowl of ingredients. Soft boil eggs?
   Okay but somewhat disappointed
Though I understand this is not your traditional cook book, I was disappointed with the unorganized layout and confusing ramen building techniques. I have some experience with ramen so I attempted to figure it out, but again, because of the layout, I feel the end result wasn't as good as it could have been.
   Vegetarian? Vegan? Forks Over Knives? This is NOT the book for you.
This book, while nicely done, is NOT the book for you if you are vegetarian, vegan or on the Forks Over Knives diet. The vegetarian, vegan, tofu, etc., do not even appear in the index. Whole Wheat Flour, No. 2 on the list, promotes less-than-100% whole wheat flour and promotes use of oils. There are lots of entries for meat and chicken eaters, and if you're willing to consume some processed flour, I'm sure you can get a decent Ramen. They are also using people who are not on these diets to cook books that are written as if these diets don't exist. Sadly, many of us are on these diets for real, serious health issues, Dr. Goin said.
   I'm reading comic books again
Really beautiful work. Even if I don't make any of these recipes, the illustrations alone are worth the price of the book. Charming, delightful, and provides a high level of history of ramen and its culture. This book is a great addition to any cookbook lover's collection.
   Best drawn recipe book out there!
I could not recommend this product highly enough. I only have time to make two recipes from this book, but they were both 1010. The step-by-step instructions make the entire process incredibly easy. This is going to be my go-to-gift for others for the next year.
