What is your favorite type of noodles? Udon. With egg. Udon. Curry Udon. Udon with grated Japanese citrus. – I like Soba!

– It has to be! I like Tonkotsu Ramen! Yokohama style. Same for me. We both always go for Ramen together. He lets me try the same things. Could you recommend us a place? Kagetsu. In Shibuya there is a Ramen place called Kuroko. In Yokohama there is a good Ramen place called Shitaburi no buta. I like Ramen from Taishoken. A place called Nantsutte is tasty. Where can I find that place? Well we are from the Ibaraki prefecture… It’s at the south exit of Mitto station. That place is really delicious. I shall check it out once I go to Ibaraki. What was the most recent noodle dish you tried? – The pasta I just had.

– Miso. – Was it good?
– Yes! We went to the Kawaii Monster Cafe and had Rainbow pasta. They had 5 different and tasty pasta sauces. They had cheese, butter, chilli sauce and such. Very tasty. Thanks so much. Looks like Ramen was the big winner amongst all the noodle dishes. Soba and Udon were on the second place and on the 4th place we had all pasta dishes.

  2. Letters from Japan says:

    It seems like the further north you go, the more people like soba – the further south the more they like udon. Everyone loves ramen. Can you blame them?

  3. TakoyaKyono says:

    Watching this while eating BBQ beef Super Noodles with a splash of soy sauce. I'm hungry again…

    I live in the states and I only tried ramen(store brought dehydrated ramen) and of course pasta, but willing to try the others. But living in a small town it is limited to do anything. SOOOOOO BORING!! 😛

    I like Ramen. I usually put an raw egg (it's processed), green onions, cherry tomatoes, pepper, salt/soy sauce, cooked/boiled mushrooms (i cook/boil them myself if we have them), chicken sometimes I don't usually eat meat with my Ramen though (usually bought the day before due to my family), and some kinda spice to make it kinda spicy though most of the time I try to eat healthy cause I don't like how unhealthy food taste sometimes I also like to try to exercise a few minutes after eating though at least once my tummy has settled

  10. Flastew says:

    Very fun video. It is so fun watching how the Japanese girls act so shy when answering the questions. I guess it is a combination of shy and respect but still very cute. Plus they are being asked by a very cute girl (Cathy Cat). Thanks for a fun and interesting video.
