First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Evan and I am a student at Texas State University majoring in Digital Media Innovation with a minor in Computer Science. If you have made it to this page I can only assume that you have an interest in food more specifically, Ramen, as we will be exploring many ramen restaurants in the Austin and San Marcos, Texas, areas; perhaps some restaurants a little outside of that range.
My love for ramen stems back to my early 20s when I was stationed in Yokosuka, Japan. As sailors, we stuck to the stereo type of drinking to the foam. When morning reared its head and it was time to continue with our weekends we would hit up the local ramen shops to cure our ailments from the night before. A hot steaming bowl of pork based broth with chewy wheat noodles garnished with a hard boiled egg and marinated braised pork belly would rejuvenate us back to life.
Now, when I walk into a ramen restaurant, I am overcome with nostalgia from days past. It is my goal with this blog to explore and share many of the ramen restaurants around the Central Texas area and possibly beyond. There is a lot of ramen out there, and not so much time so lets get to it.
If ramen piques your interest, you should read my next post.
