Fun Link Friday: Regional Ramen of Japan

If there’s one thing you always need in a chilly Japan winter, it’s ramen. This week Lucky Peach posted a great little article on the regional ramen types of Japan, which is a neat guide to what goes into these different specialty flavors. Each of the types has a little discussion about the base broth, toppings, some of the history, and even includes mention of the famous shops to eat it at!

    And this article was going so well until this:
    “Let’s hope the town escapes the ill effects of the nuclear meltdown at the not-far-enough-away Fukushima reactor.”
    Weirdly, though, the next entry, Shirakawa, escapes the same snarky prejudice, despite being substantially closer to the reactor.
