My love affair with tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen started several years ago in NYC when my friend introduced me to this sinfully rich, creamy broth at Ippudo.  I had been on the hunt to find its equal but have been unsuccessful until today.  I recently found out that the Ippudo in NYC is actually from a chain of Ippudo’s in Japan.  When I found out that the city I’m living in currently has an Ippudo, part of me went to heaven.  Today, I finally went in for a bowl of the tonkotsu ramen; I think I actually melted from all the goodness.  (Nevermind that the sodium and fat content is up the whazoo so that I’m liable to go into CHF exacerbation right after my MI… but a person’s gotta enjoy)  And so the affair continues…
