Hashiguchi Jr has some decent ramen and soba, but I still like Umadio better - handmade in house. Haven't tried Shoya Izakaya's ramen.

It's too bad that the plans to create a ramen/soba factory in Atlanta fell through.

Disagree. However, the last time I went was back in 2008. Did they change the taste? I had their tonkotsu ramen. It was very bland.

Umaido is good. I wonder if they still have my belt on the wall.

Hrmm..no idea of the recipe changed, but it's anything but bland...

I went to Yakitori Jinbei for the first time two days ago.  It certainly wasn't bland, but it was lighter, missing a slight sourness, and just less complex than what I've had in LA (never had ramen anywhere else in Atlanta except for Nick's occasional forays into it at The Porter).  I'd go back though.  Even without being of the same caliber as what I've had elsewhere it's still a great bowl of noodles.

I like Yakitori Jinbei's better than Umaido's, because I thought Umaido was too salty.

I had lots of good ramen in Japan, but those don't count.
Food is my favorite.
