Thanks to Senpai Kai for some of his footage!

Kazuo Yamagishisan is known throughout Japan as the God of Ramen. He was Japan's first true celebrity ramen chef. in the 1960s he invented a style of ramen he called morisoba which eventually became the genre of ramen now called tsukemen.

In this video I attempt a home version of this legendary dish with a recipe written by my ramen buddy Erik Bentz of Cafe Mochiko in Cincinnati Ohio. Erik is a phenomenal chef and its no surprise that his recipe helped me make one of the best things I've ever made, ever.
