Ivan Ramen: Love, Obsession, and Recipes from Tokyo's Most Unlikely Noodle Joint - Ivan Orkin, Chris Ying

I've had this book on my kitchen table for a week or so, and I pick it up now and then and read for a few minutes.  The writing is engaging and personal, and Orkin's story is unusual. I would recommend it to fans of good food writing or memoir, especially anyone who enjoyed Momofuku by David Chang and/or Lucky Peach magazine.
