Who Writes This Thing, Anyway?

Benjamin grew up in New York eating pizza every day.  After graduating college, he moved to California, and then to Japan.  He lived in Tokyo for over a year, but then got a new job and moved to Osaka in June of 2011.

Though he grew up as a notoriously picky eater, Benjamin has come to like all kinds of foods.  In ramen terms, he prefers thick, rich broths, and chewy noodles.  His favorite style is miso, and he's a sucker for anything spicy.
