    I wasn't really convinced about the idea of a comic book cookbook. And yet, it works. Recipes and techniques are easy to understand and accurate. It's essential, but it contains every info you need to start cooking ramen at home.My only complain is about units of measurement. I'll never understand how someone can find comfortable cooking with the imperial system. Or those annoying "cups". Every cookbook that aims to appeal to a worldwide audience...

    I don't read comics and don't eat ramen much since the broths are usually too rich for me, but I sure liked this book! It's a fun way to learn about ramen and has a lot of recipes, including for broths that are lighter, like vegetarian and chicken. You can put whatever you like in the soup bowl with the broth, but lots of traditional suggestions. Oishisou, made me want to run out to one of our local ramenyas!

    3.5 stars. This cookbook is definitely unique in that it is a comic book and not only provides some delicious looking recipes, but also discusses the history of Ramen and how it has transformed over the years. I rated this a 3.5 because I enjoyed the layout of this book and the historical aspect. Recipe wise, it was not my favorite in that they were extremely labor intensive, and the cookbook format made it difficult at times to follow along.

    5 stars: in a perfect world, every cookbook would be a comic book cookbook.3 stars: in a perfect world, every comic book cookbook would have more than one vegetarian option (almost everything in this book is meat-filled and fish-filled).hence, 4 stars.

    Gorgeously done comic cookbook - I hope more author/illustrators will do the same!
