Adam Liaws piece in the Wall Street Journal (here) has me shaking my head.
The article should have been titled "Another dumb **** retard foodie journalist discovers Japan."
Seriously? From the article:
"Hakata is known as the home of Japan’s tonkotsu ramen – a thick, rich broth made from pork bones and other ingredients simmered sometimes for days to produce a strongly umami soup with a powerful aroma. I’ve heard the pong of tonkotsu likened to dirty socks, wet dog and a steaming barnyard, but those who aren’t put off by the smell are rewarded with a delicious and authentic noodle soup that has served as a prototype for ramen all over Japan. It’s excellent served with karashi takana, the local spicy pickled mustard greens."
HOLY SHIT HOLD THE PHONES TONKOTSU RAMEN'S HOME IS IN HAKATA - ITS A RICH BROTH MADE FROM PORK BONES - NEWS FROM THE MYSTERIOUS LAND OF NIPPON ON THE INTERNETS FOR ALL TO READ ABOUT THE WONDERS OF MYSTICAL JAPAN - THE MYTHS, LEGENDS AND ANCIENT CULTURES REVEALED - OH SHIT I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO NOW THAT ADAM LIAW HAS WRITTEN ABOUT THIS - AFTER LIVING IN JAPAN FOR 5 YEARS I NEVER KNEW THAT ABOUT TONKOTSU RAMEN - ADAM'S BEEN HERE IN FUKUOKA FOR WHAT - 5 HOURS? HOLY SHIT THE WORLD CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS NEWS.
Adam, stick to being a celebrity chef.
