Ivan Orkin is someone who really needs no introduction to ramen fans. He's a legend. As a foreigner, he opened Ivan Ramen in Japan and quickly rose to stardom there. After years of operating his shops in Japan successfully, he returned to the US and opened Ivan Ramen in NYC to critical acclaim. He's been featured throughout the gamut of media in both Japan and the US and its surreal that he is also on this little podcast.
Ramen lord and I somehow managed to win the bid for a charity auction for Ivan's time called Ask Chefs Anything and while he was only required to spend 30 minutes with us, he went for over an hour. The discussion was incredibly enlightening and I can't say how much of a class act Ivan was throughout the whole experience.
