Bowling for ramen

My SO and I like to get take-out ramen from Japanese restaurants, but our bowls are woefully inadequate. (Usually I use a regular bowl and have to go back for seconds and thirds, while he awkwardly slurps it out of a salad bowl.) I'd like to get him some appropriately-sized bowls for Christmas, but I'm not even sure what to search for or where to look. Any suggestions, recommendations or pointers? Doesn't have to be fancy or Japanese, just a good size to hold all the deliciousness.

Will this machine-translated Japanese lead us astray?

After a trip to Japan, my partner brought back a number of fun things including this ramen stand model kit. We're not entirely new to building models, but this one turned out to be a lot more complicated. And the instructions are entirely in Japanese, which neither of us can read at all. [more inside]

Vegetable stock: what makes it amazing and how best to use it?

This is a two-part question.... I have the idea of a "stone soup" kind of fall gathering where everyone brings something to make a huge pot of vegetable stock. I need to know what makes good stock – what to put in and what to leave out – and then what should I make at the party for us all to eat and enjoy some of this stock right away? [more inside]

Where can I get plain ramen noodles?

Where can I get plain (par-cooked) ramen noodles in NYC? I'm talking about frozen/refrigerated, not dried. I work in Midtown, so I'm near some Japanese groceries, but all I've seen are frozen packages that include soup- is there a better option than buying those and throwing out the broth? Also, are there particular brands to look out for?

How does one start a restaurant in the US with a foreigner?

Long story short: I have a friend here in Japan who runs a ramen shop. His lifelong dream is to move to America and open a ramen shop there, and my wife and I are hoping to help him do this a few years down the road (my wife would basically run the business end of things and perhaps own it on paper, and he'd be in charge of the kitchen end of things).

How can I satisfy my ramen cravings?

I love, loooooove beef flavored Sapporo Ichiban ramen noodles, but I can't always find them. Does anyone know (a) where I can get a steady supply in Toronto, or online with non-ridiculous shipping to Canada? or (b) what brand (or type of generic) beef-flavored ramen noodles taste similar? Particularly annoyed by the little cubes of freeze-dried carrots in some brands I've tried.
