This is it! Lucky Peach Issue #1. I don’t think you can order it from them anymore, but I do believe it’s on ebay for as cheap as $169.99! This is still my favorite issue of the first four.  Great article on the creation of instant ramen, plus a full lesson on the different varieties of ramen found all over Japan.  I went to the biggest Asian grocery store in nearby Echo Park and checked out some of their instant ramen and brought a few home to sample. Honestly, this issue is so awesome! There’s even a fun piece with Dave Chang, Anthony Bourdain, and Wylie Dufresne discussing the food mediocrity of their respected homelands. If you missed out and didn’t get this issue, just go to ebay now and maybe skip that ounce of weed this month.
