Toasted rye noodles
These toasted rye noodles are custom made for Ivan Orkin by Sun Noodle, which is "quickly becoming something like the Pat LaFrieda of noodles".
Massaging the noodles
Each ball of raw noodles gets a quick massage to enhance texture.
The portion-sized noodle balls boil in individual strainers.
Shigetoshi Nakamura adds the next batch of noodles to the pot.
Draining the noodles
When the noodles are ready, each serving is drained with one, quick, ninja-like move.

The slowly stewing pork belly is added next.
And finally a handful of chopped green onion completes your perfect cup of ramen.
