Something You Should Eat: Ramen from Tampopo

November 9, 2010

If you're at all a fan of Tampopo - and I mean the seminal cult film about the quest to create the perfect ramen shop - then you're going to really appreciate the tiny restaurant of the same name on the city's far Northwest Side.  The owners named it after the movie, afterall, and even though they're Korean, they manage to exude the same polite demeanor, with an exacting precision when it comes to executing their beloved bowl of char siu ramen.  If this doesn't make you hungry, I'm not sure what will.
