For those of us who could use a little help in the Japanese aisle, First We Feast features a handy guide from Ivan Orkin, the ramen superstar from Long Island who made his name in Tokyo over the past 10 years and just opened his first U.S. shop in the new Gotham West Market.

Click through for Orkin’s tips on everything from rice cookers (“This Zojirushi rice cooker has what they call the ‘fuzzy logic.’ It estimates how much liquid is in the cooker, so if you put a little too much water in, it’ll produce more steam to cook it away—so it’ll cook the rice perfectly every time”) to Kewpie mayonnaise (“No home is complete without it”).
