I just had ramen at a Japanese restaurant, I was less than whelmed. Seemed like they just dressed up a couple packages of Top Ramen, except the broth wasn't as good.

Pho >>> ramen

I have a friend that orders the one menu item with every fucking cow part in it. Tendon, tripe, crunchy connective tissue stomach, eyeball, penis, ichor... Looks nasty. I'll stick to my steak strips.

We have a strangely large number of Asian cuisine places.  Off the top of my head, I can think of six. No chains. They actually outnumber the "Italian" restaurants...and no, we don't have an Olive Garbage.

It looks like this will be unpopular opinion in this thread, but ramen over pho for me.  The reason are numerous; ramen is actually pronounced how its spelled, Naruto and Goku both love ramen, and ramen tends to be creamier and I think meatier (umami-er?) tasting than pho. 

Although I won't say no to either.

I want to open a pho restaurant named Pho King.

I usually get the "special" wherever I go.

Usually has steak + tendon + brisket + tripe

No, we aren't big enough for that chain. This is just a local place. There is actually a reasonable sushi place here too.

I wouldn't eat much sushi that far inland. Maybe salmon.

Nah, you can get reasonable sushi anywhere now. It's frozen fish of course, but a lot if not most sushi fish even on the coast is frozen. You also never want to eat freshwater fish raw (salmon counts if you catch it in a river I think).

Different types of bacteria live in each environment. Saltwater bacteria in fish aren't that bad, but not so with freshwater bacteria in fish. The other part of that is saltwater fish are, as we know, flash frozen most of the time, which kills bacteria, but not freshwater fish.
