Ramen 🍜 makes me very happy. So it was a great time talking with Koki Aihara, the owner of Shiki Menya which is one of the best ramen spots in Calgary. He discusses what it took to open up the restaurant, the career path he initially set out on, and what he's looking forward to in the future. Plus we discuss hip hop bands, Banff, and collecting cookbooks.
