Portrait of Max
Max is one of the owners of Masa Ramen in Santa Clarita, California, USA . Max’s Dad always dreamed of opening a Ramen restaurant. About 1.5 years prior to this posting, his Dad was able to acquire enough funds to open Masa Ramen. Max came to help out and been there since.
Max always dreamed of being a cook. Before helping his Dad with the restaurant, he trained for two years in small town in Yamaguchi, Yamaguchi; the rural side of Japan. He believed he learned more there about Japanese cooking than he would have in a big city.
Max was born, raised and educated in Santa Clarita, California, USA, so it must have been very different and difficult to train in rural Japan, but it was well worth it. He was an excellent cook. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough. The food was light and healthy tasting,. The flavors were exquisite.
Max had mastered the ART OF UMAMI and you should give his food a try if you are ever in the area.
