The Chef: Ramen Master (Yoshi Katô)
Why We Love Him: After the experienced chef Goro can't seem to get his ramen just right, his young sidekick Gun seeks the help of an elder in the very first "ramen Western," a play on Spaghetti Western films. The noodle master gives Gun great advice when enjoying ramen: "Appreciate its gestalt. Savor the aromas."
