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.
