Growing up in Southern California as part of a family of fishmongers, the fusion of my Japanese heritage and my mother's Spanish roots created a rich tapestry of flavors in our household. While seafood was our specialty, Japanese wagyu held a special place in our hearts. Known for its marbling and unparalleled tenderness, Japanese Wagyu is a prized Japanese delicacy. The pairing of Japanese wagyu with ramen brought it to a whole new level.
