This Week's Film: The Ramen Girl
Cuisine: Japanese

Synopsis: The late Brittney Murphy stars in this light, food-themed romance, in which Abby has traveled to Tokyo to join her boyfriend Ethan, only to be dumped after two weeks. Having nowhere else to go and no path in life, she apprentices herself to Maezumi, a curmudgeonly noodle shop owner to learn the art of ramen.

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my ramen recipe.
