When I was visiting Seattle this past weekend, we had it in mind to find a place that serves ramen. I'm not talking about your 10 packs of dehydrated noodles for a dollar-style ramen, but the real stuff the cheap ramen is inspired by. Naturally, this begged our question: "Why doesn't Yakima have a place to get ramen?"

What makes real ramen different than the stuff you can buy in stores is just the quality and flavor of it all. Often the noodles are handmade in-house. The broth is wonderful and usually contains very tender meat in the soup as well. It's the kind of food that warms your soul.

Yakima may have a more diverse variety of food than most other places our size. We have authentic Korean food and authentic Japanese food. A place to get Greek kabobs and gyros. We have Italian food of all types and varieties. We have great Mexican food as well. But, out of all of our restaurants Yakima has to offer, none of them serve ramen.

We do have a couple of Asian restaurants in town, but they don't have ramen on the menu, either. They do have udon, which is like a large-sized noodle version of ramen and is fantastic. We also have three places (that I know of) that serve pho -- which is also great, but still not ramen.

So, if you happen to be a young entrepreneur and are looking for something that we don't have, yet, I'd suggest making a ramen hut. It doesn't even have to be a big restaurant or anything, just big enough to serve real ramen. That's all I ask.
