What does it take to make the perfect bowl of ramen? It's a question that's been asked by foodies over and over again. We finally have an answer thanks to A Culinary Equation, a series that breaks down the essential ingredients of famous dishes.
In their first episode, the series tackled ramen. Producers traveled to Austin to interview the team at Tatsu-Ya. Watch below as the chefs talk about the labor-intensive work behind their famous pork broth (tonkotsu to uber foodies).
