A tale of Ichiban Ramen

Posted on Friday, July 13th 2007 4:37 pm by menj in Offbeat

Last week Malcolm and I went to Ichiban Ramen at Jusco Cheras Selatan to have our dinner. It was a spur of the moment thing, by the way. So I ordered the ramen (don’t remember the name) and this arrived at the table.

Turns out to be a cold dish-type of ramen. Ah, my mistake…I thought it was supposed to be the steaming hot kind. Looks delicious anyway but there was one small problem. I had to use chopsticks. Chopsticks! Haven’t used them in years.

But I was so hungry that I didn’t care anymore. And this was the aftermath.

Yeah, I used the chopsticks. Not bad for a first-timer, eh? Thanks to blogging, I am able to afford a meal at Ichiban Ramen. There goes the lies of a particular idiot economist who thinks that I am “unemployed”. Boo to him!

      Most christians I think have had maruchan, the generic ramen in supermarkets in USA.

      But never had the chance to have authentic ramen http://www.amazon.com/Sapporo-.....38;sr=8-12

      for example.

      maybe that’s the reason why they have not converted yet?

      For the past week or 2 whenever I eat something, I only have a few bites of my food and then it feels like some of it gets caught in my throat. I usually chew my food properly so there shouldn’t be a problem. But then I end up drinking water, coughing, jumping up and down a few times to clear the airway and get whatever is stuck in my throat, unstuck. I usually wait a few hrs before everything is okay again, in fear of choking or something getting caught in my throat again. Its just a feeling that something is stuck in my throat and my stomach has this weird feeling like whatever food I was able swallow down before I got the feeling something was stuck in my throat, doesn’t agree with my stomach. It seems like only liquid and really soft food like ramen (ichiban) will go down without a problem. Its when it comes to solid food that I have problems. I’m a female and I am 18, so why is this happening to me? What could it be and should I go see the doctor about this?

      Well i have decided to go to a two week trip to Japan, i will be leaving After the anime expo here in los angeles, so i will be leaving from LAX, and heading to kyoto. I looked up on expedia, and found a flight and hotoel, for 2100, and i was roughtly estimating that i will be spending about 450 on food, through my whole stay, and i will be buying the bullet train ticket for two weeks, so that i can travel unlimited from kyoto to tokyo, i was just wondering how much that would cost me. And i also wanted to claryfy that i will not be spending money on souvenirs, and i will be sticking to ramen, and maybe go out for a drink on the weekend. i was wondering if 3500 would be enough for my whole stay there, including hotel, flight, food, and travel.

      I don’t like sushi but I LOVE curry, takiyaki, ramen, udon, and all those great noodle/rice dishes. Where’s a good place to go that offers these and not just hibachi or sushi?

      Also, if anyone knows of any Asian market places nearby that would be great to know too. Where I used to live we had a huge Korean marketplace called H Mart. I hope there’s something like that here too!
