The God of Ramen:
To ramen lovers, Kazuo Yamagishi – owner of Taishoken – is a god. His recipe may seem like the traditional Tokyo-style ramen, but there is great depth in his culinary practice. Since the shop’s debut 50 years ago, Yamagishi managed to create his distinct and unique flavor. On a typical weekday, customers from all over Japan would queue outside the shop until they were served – a ridiculously long wait of over two hours. Yamagishi-san is also jolly chef with a joyful outward disposition, but deep inside is a sad man who is married to his work and carries the legacy of his deceased wife. Eventually, this takes a toll, and as his health declines his apprentices open competing businesses. In the end, “The God of Ramen” is a chronicle of one man’s life and his impact on the community and the art of ramen itself.
