We Dare You to Watch This Tampopo Clip Without Getting Hungry for Ramen

Categories: Food on Film

In preparation for this week's review on the Mission's new Ramen Izakaya Goku, I rewatched parts of Tampopo, the classic Japanese "ramen Western" that is one of strangest and most wonderful food movies out there. I can't watch this scene, one of my favorites, in which a ramen expert schools a young buck on the proper way to eat a bowl, without becoming possessed with a desire to eat ramen immediately. Enjoy after the jump.
