In this adorable picture book for fans of Amy Wu and the Perfect Bao and Bilal Cooks Daal, Hiro aspires to make a bowl of ramen as delicious as his dadâsâand runs into some surprises on his first attempt!
Hiro loves ramen. Every Sunday, Hiroâs dad makes delicious, perfect ramen for dinner, using a recipe passed down from his dad. Thereâs nori seaweed, briny like the ocean; nitamago egg, the yolk golden like the sun; and chashu pork so tender, it melts in your mouth. Yum!

The eggs slip through his fingers! The pork falls apart! Hiro is worried heâll never be a real ramen chefâ¦but thanks to his fatherâs wise advice and his own creativity, Hiro discovers that every personâs perfect bowl of ramen is unique.
