BANGKOK AMAZING GOURMET
Everyone wanna be a champion!
These days, many cover versions of so-called Japanese champion ramen joints raided Bangkok. Most of the owners are not Japanese restaurateurs and are not "champions" in ramen open contests in Japan; and their local ramen chefs (most of them) have not been properly trained by Japanese ramen chefs prior to their commercial practice, are lack of knowledge about ramen (or maybe even lack of knowledge about Japan). So can these people cook us a bowl of authentic J-ramen with hearty soup?
That doesn't hurt to wait for miracle if you don't mind to waste time and money.
Pray. We always have faith! Chabuton, many of the ramen dishes were created by renowned TV Champion (2002) chef Yasuji Morizumi, has quietly extended his franchise license to Thailand after the success of his ramen joints in Japan and the US (both rated in Michelin Guide and Zagat), with the debut in Siam Square Soi 3 last year and recently an addition to the Central World - the dining paradise in Bangkok.
