Im just going to say this now, for the record: You wont ever find me waiting four hours in line for ramen.
In certain pockets of the country, ramen chefs achieve rock star status for fancying up a culinary underachiever long relegated to American dorm room cooking.
Last weeks opening of Ivan Orkins ramen shop in New York City yielded a media frenzy, and diners lined up for a bowl.
Its not just an East Coast weird food thing. Seattle is in on the ramen frenzy with more than a dozen eateries opening there.
But long lines for ramen in Tacoma? Would that could that? ever happen here, in a region that practically prides itself in snubbing precious foodie trends?
