wanted to open a traditional Sapporo ramen shop in DC because it was what he missed most about Japan. He knew that the clear broths, curly noodles, and wok-roasted toppings would capture people's palates in DC just as they did in Japan. Sapporo is known as the home of miso ramen, which was popularized through the friendship between an American diplomat and a Japanese ramen cook. It is thus a fitting style of ramen to serve in the nation's capital.
