This Bites: The Ramen Invasion

Ann Christenson joins 88Nine Radio Milwaukee’s Tarik Moody every Friday morning to talk about restaurants, trends and anything related to culinary culture. Here’s this week’s segment on new places to get ramen, Tarik’s obsession with soup dumplings, and unusual outdoor dining experiences such as a pizza farm in Stockholm, Wis.

Every week on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee (88.9fm) DJ Tarik Moody and Milwaukee Magazine’s Ann Christenson talk about restaurants, food issues and edibles (and drinkables) they maybe can’t get enough of. This week, the This Bites team talks about the spread of Japanese-inspired ramen, soup dumplings (dare we hope for them here in MKE?), plus Wisconsin spots for the best outdoor dining experience. Listen to that segment here:
