"Few foods inspire as much passion and partisanship as the dish of noodles in broth known as 'ramen.' Hot or cold, plain or miso, from fancy fusion creations to humble roadside takeout, ramen is truly a beloved food, one that can give rise to fierce loyalty or fiercer criticism (not to mention the occasional fistfight). In this volume of Oishinbo, Yamaoka and company inquire into the 'soul of ramen,' from the flour used in the noodles to the chickens used in the broth. And where there's ramen, there's gyōza: little dumplings made with a variety of fillings and served as a side dish. Yill Yamaoka be able to create an 'ultimate' gyōza before Kaibara creates a 'supreme' one?"--Cover flap.

Hass motifs like in other Oishinbo books.A person doing something food related needs help.Shirō Yamaoka intervenes and offers advice and maybe some very clever solution.Kaibara (Shiro's father) is an antagonist to Shiro but not usually (from what I've seen so far) antagonistic to other people's food related problems.This one really gave me a new understanding about noodles.
