For years, we've been chasing the best bowl of tonkotsu ramen here in the United States. It seems we found a pretty big lead in the search, as world-acclaimed food travel host and chef Andrew Zimmern dropped some major ramen praise.
Best tonkatsu ramen in America might just be in San Diego!
This praise should not be taken lightly as Zimmern himself has been around the block a few times. The culinary authority has hosted such Travel Channel series' as Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods America, and Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre World.
It might be pretty safe to say he knows what he's talking about.
Tonkotsu is a type of ramen broth made from pork bones which originated from the Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan. It's arguably one of the best and iconic variations of the Japanese ramen dish.
Looks like we're going to San Diego this weekend.
