Crazy Ramen Preview Bento! Itadakimasu minna!!

Bento Bites – Ichiraku Ramen, Miyazaki Ramen & Vegeta

See how Hayao Miyazaki and a crazy Vegeta from Dragon Ball Super prepare ramen!

We all love the scenes in Naruto where he sits with Sakura or a few friends eating ramen at Ramen Ichiraku, his favourite restaurant. Many of us have never eaten ramen and would love to know how to make it. Others go crazy and dabble or experiment to create their own versions on what Ramen may be in the kitchen. In today’s Preview Bento, we tantalize your taste buds by showing you some ramen recipes as well as some scenes in anime that are all about ramen. Itadakimasu.

Ichiraku Ramen

For those that always dreamt of eating some ramen while watching Naruto eat Ichiraku Ramen at his favourite ramen restaurant, we have good news. We found a nice video where a woman recreates the whole recipe and she makes it look easy as well. Now we can make our ramen and eat it with Naruto or even use it as a theme-party dish to treat our friends watching Naruto with us. Food does taste better when shared, doesn’t it?

Come, watch the Ichiraku Ramen recipe with us. Please follow the link and have a taste: http://bit.ly/Ichiraku_Miso_Ramen_With_Extra_Chashu

Hayao Miyazaki’s Poor Man’s “Aurora Style” Salt-flavoured Ramen with eggs

Anime legend Hayao Miyazaki is not just a genius when creating legendary anime like Princess Mononoke (Mononoke Hime), Howl’s Moving Castle, My Friend Totoro and Spirited Away. Miyazaki is, it seems is also a ramen cooking genius with some crazy ninja skills. In the video, we are about to share, Miyazaki takes up the soup spoon and blows the staff’s minds with his dish that he named ‘Poor Man’s “Aurora Style” Salt-flavoured Ramen with eggs’. As you will see, some of the staff were actually shocked that he cooked for them. This all happened while everyone at Studio Ghibli was working on Spirited Away.

Ramen Short Movie

A Ramen Comedy-Action Short Movie?!

Ramen can, it seems, bring out the artist in all of us. We found a crazy but sugoi short movie by Michael Chen influenced by the experiences as well as amazing people he met during his one year stay in Sapporo, Japan. The animation tells the tale of a young Salary Man that stumbles across a little ramen shop on his way home from work. The movie is crazy fun to watch and the animation is well done.

So skip the popcorn, grab a bowl of ramen and watch this! Just follow the link: http://bit.ly/Ramen_Animated_Short_Movie

Chilled ramen with sesame sauce – Koufuku Graffiti

The anime Koufuku Graffiti is filled with wonderful food dishes and it tells the tale of Ryou, a middle school girl who lives by herself and is an exceptional cook, and she makes friends with everyone because of her knack of cooking. The word ‘koufuku is a play on two Japanese homonyms – one meaning ‘happiness’, the other ‘appetite’. The anime is mouth-watering delicious to watch and may cause you to salivate like crazy because everything looks so delicious.

Today we share a scene from the anime where Ryou makes Chilled ramen with sesame sauce. To have a taste, please follow the link: http://bit.ly/Chilled_Ramen_with_sasame_sauce

Vegeta, Prince of Instant Ramen

In Dragon Ball Super episode 16 we learn from Vegeta how not to prepare eggs and we learn about the greatest dish on earth which happens to be instant cup ramen. Vegeta is up to his usual crazy antics. The scene is hilarious and we had to share it with all of you.
