For years, we’ve been chasing the best bowl of tonkotsu ramen here in the United States. It seems we found a pretty big lead in the search, as world-acclaimed food travel host and chef Andrew Zimmern dropped some major ramen praise.
We were so honored that @chefaz came to eat our Ramen🍜 from Minneapolis !!!✈️ Thank you very much to Mr Zimmern and his crew🙏 We are so exited to be part of it !!! And thank you for all the customers who has been supporting us. We are not here without you. #SanDiego #theZimmernsList #TravelChannel #Fall2017
A recent visit to Menya Ultra prompted Andrew Zimmern to exclaime that the:
Best tonkatsu ramen in America might just be in San Diego!
This praise should not be taken lightly as Zimmern himself has been around the block a few times. The culinary authority has hosted such Travel Channel series’ as Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods America, and Andrew Zimmern’s Bizarre World.
It might be pretty safe to say he knows what he’s talking about.
Tonkotsu is a type of ramen broth made from pork bones which originated from the Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan. It’s arguably one of the best and iconic variations of the Japanese ramen dish.
Looks like we’re going to San Diego this weekend.
