Praise

“Ivan Ramen is a wonderful glimpse into the delicious, inspiring world of Ivan Orkin.”
—Danny Bowien, James Beard Award–winning chef of Mission Chinese Food
 
“We are all fortunate that a young Ivan Orkin, growing up in 1970s suburban Long Island, fell in love with Japanese food. If he hadn’t, the world would never know Ivan’s amazing ramen, one of the most powerfully delicious noodle soups on the planet.”
—Chad Robertson, James Beard Award–winning chef, author, and co-founder of Tartine Bakery and Bar Tartine
  
“Ivan has dedicated his whole life to understanding and creating the perfect bowl of ramen, and he has mastered the two most critical elements: the noodles and the broth. He consistently delivers the best bowls I’ve experienced in my life. Completely authentic, completely delicious.” 
—Ming Tsai, James Beard Award–winning chef, author, and owner of Blue Ginger and Blue Dragon
 
“What Ivan Orkin does not know about noodles is not worth knowing.”  
—Anthony Bourdain chef, author, and host of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown
