Welcome to Ramen & Inglenook!
I’m Kaan, a wanderer who divides her time between Manila, Tokyo and Chicago. I enjoy ramen on most days. I love staying at home during winter, preferably under a blanket… in front of a cozy bonfire, book in one hand and a PBR on another. I’m fond of discovering new things – from obscure music to hole in the wall eateries. I’m too young to stop having adventures but I’m too old for adrenaline inducing activities (i.e. rollercoasters).
Fast facts about me: I graduated from Kendall College in Chicago with a degree in Hospitality Management, and a certificate in Japanese Cultural Studies from Waseda University Tokyo. I also had a brief stint at Alliance Franćaise de Manille, but sadly only finished A2 French level.
I’m mildly obsessed with Harry Potter (unashamedly shipping Drarry) and chocolates. I have an aversion to expensive wine. They all taste the same to me… DELICIOUS! I’m definitely not a healthy foodie. The greasier and fattier the food is, the better! I have a piss-poor taste for whiskey and hard drinks. That said, I know great tea, coffee and beer when I taste it! I like taking photos with my Polaroid, and I’m currently saving up for a new camera equipment!
I’m probably going to be writing about experimental cooking, stumbled upon places, interesting notions and music.
