Let's Make Ramen!: A Comic Book Cookbook Reviews

  • vonblubba

    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 should in my opinion contain dosages

    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 should in my opinion contain dosages in both metric and imperial system.

    is a graphic novel cookbook written by Hugh Amano and illustrated by Sarah Becan. It celebrates ramen in a fun and accessible graphic guide.

    The book is divided into six basic sections: Ramen 101, Stocks & Broths, Noodles, Meats, Accompaniments, and Offshoots & Riffs.

    The book is divided into six basic sections: Ramen 101, Stocks & Broths, Noodles, Meats, Accompaniments, and Offshoots & Riffs. Becan's illustrations are both amusing and functional, and Amano's enthusiastic instructions are thoughtful and encouraging. This delectable fusion of two increasingly popular genres, ramen and comics will thrill ramen aficionados – such as me.

    is written and constructed rather well. It is extremely informative from the history of ramen and the numerous of permutation that this simple dish could take. Each section is surprisingly detailed and contains more than forty recipes. The illustrations are wonderfully detailed and visually entice my appetite for ramen.

    All in all,

    is a wonderful graphic novel cookbook detailing the amazing and wonderful dish that is ramen.

    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!

  • Matt Fitz

    A fun read and a simple overview of making ramen for the uninitiated and easily intimidated. Wojtek be ready to open your own ramen-ya but can get close to making your own kitchen ramen friendly

    This book is fabulous! Learning about the history of ramen was cool in of itself - I didn’t realize that this included recipes for making every single component of ramen at home. This was a beautifully illustrated love letter to a delicious dish and I can’t wait to try making my own someday! Definitely one to buy for my collection.

  • Brittany

    This was actually an incredibly fun graphic novel/cookbook. This is so awesomely done. I thoroughly enjoyed reading a story about delicious food and learning the history and the depth of ways to make each ingredient from scratch and what it means culturally :) Brilliant! I want to buy this one!

    5 stars for making me put it on my Amazon Christmas wishlist!

  • Laura

    Great guide for anyone interested in ramen. Clear and cute art with beautiful muted but rich colors. Very explicit and well-explained recipes. Not for the faint of heart, but definitely approachable by all!

    When the weather gets a little cold, I do love a nice, big comforting bowl of soup. And when I don’t have a ton of time or energy left at the end of the day, I often end up making some ramen: there’s always a sad veggie or two left in the crisper that needs to be used up, and a dollop of butter and curry paste brightens up any soup stock. Easy peasy!

Easy peasy!

    When I saw this book, I figured it would make for a great source of inspiration and new ideas to pimp up my fall and winter ramen routine. I also fell in love with the format: I remember having a couple of illustrated cookbooks as a child, which were really great to teach children about basic food preparation (it certainly made it look more fun than regular cookbooks!), so the idea of blending comic books and recipes struck me as pure genius.

    While this book is gorgeous and informative, I have to say it seriously lacks in vegetarian options!! While I do eat meat from time to time, it isn’t a big part of my diet or cooking preferences. There is only one vegetarian broth recipe, and while I understand that it's not strictly traditional, a few variations would have been nice. And while there are many recipes for the different meaty garnishes to add to a ramen bowl, again there are very few alternative ideas for meat-free versions included in the book… The meat-balls and marinated eggs recipes look absolutely scrumptious.

    While I am not quite ready for the very time-consuming process of making my own broth, I love that the author thought to include a way to make home-made “instant” ramen broth and store it so you don’t have to spend an entire day boiling away pig trotters every time you fancy a bowl.

    I'm giving this book 3 stars because despite being a very cool idea, I'm just not going to use it much. This is really more for the ramen purists, as where I'll always be the girl who uses store-bought broth and noodles when she feel like having a lazy dinner.

    While this book is entertaining, I'm (a) just not THAT into ramen and (b) unable to eat most of the combinations as I don't eat meat. (This book is super meat-centric.)

    This is a serious. ramen. cookbook. (in comic book clothes). As in, make your own noodles, broth, etc. That said, it was interesting to read about the (surprisingly recent) history of ramen, ramen culture (it's totally a thing), and the many variations.

    Personally, I'll stick to buying ready-made noodles and throwing together some quicker combinations, like

    But if you LOVE ramen (and meat), this is the book for you.

    This...did not encourage me to delve into the world of making my own ramen the way I hoped it would, though I am always there for comic cookbooks and Sarah Becan's art. Everything here seemed too complicated--the ingredients too hard or expensive to procure (especially living out in the boonies as I am right now), and I am not in the financial position to justify getting much of the equipment. It was recipe-heavy rather than story-heavy...more

    ...but at least with the former, I felt inspired to dig into Korean cooking. For now, I'm content paying for others to make my good bowl of ramen.
