by Tetsu Kariya In this volume, the focus shifts from food to drink--specifically, to sake. For centuries different types of sake have played the same roles in Japan as wine and beer have in the West, from inexpensive everyday drink to refined single-batch rarities. Above all, sake has been enjoyed as an accompaniment to a meal, and after a revelatory moment at a local pub, Yamaoka decides that drink pairings must be an integral part of the Ultimate Menu. So which foods go best with which drinks? Sit down, pour yourself a glass, and read on!
Oishinbo: Ramen and Gyoza Creator: Tetsu Kariya Few foods inspire as much passion and partisanship as the dish of noodles in broth known as "ramen." Hot or cold, plain or miso, from fancy fusion creations to humble roadside takeout, ramen is truly a beloved food, one that can give rise to fierce loyalty or fiercer criticism (not to mention the occasional fistfight). In this volume of Oishinbo, Yamaoka and company inquire into the "soul of ramen," from the flour used in the noodles to the chickens used in the broth. And where there's ramen, there's gyoza: little dumplings made with a variety of fillings and served as a side dish. Will Yamaoka be able to create an "ultimate" gyoza before Kaibara creates a "supreme" one?
