Re: “The Atlanta Ramen Smackdown

Having lived in NYC and LA the last decade and moved here a few years back, I've searched long and hard for Ramen. The places mentioned here really are average at best and as Brad elodes too, these aren't great options just adaquent ones.
Umaido is the best of the bunch but not worth the one hour one way trek to Suwanee.
Agree about Raku. Too bad their ramen can't hold a candle to how good. I'm sure their midtown location will be flooded by cheap and hungry tech students who don't care about quality. ala Hankook Taqueria.
Nice try Taka but I still only like your sushi.
Gato tries too hard to be creative.
Mibo's bowl is a mess and I got cold soup too.
I'm looking forward to future possibilities hearing that a few chef driven in town options are headed our way.

Re: “The Atlanta Ramen Smackdown

Shoya's ramen is pedestrian at best. Thin and uninspired. In general a shop needs to specialize in Ramen to be good at it in that they have to dedicate a lot of time and space to it and make huge vats of broth. A place like Shoya that sells an occasional bowl could never make a good one.

Jinbei was sold or is currently being sold to a Chinese family and their shortcuts are already showing up. It has gone downhill in general since the old Japanese owner gentlemen passed away.
