If your idea of ramen is a 20 cent pack like the kind you hoarded in college, this is probably not the book for you. If, on the other hand, you’ve tasted life-changing ramen (it exists), we’d recommend spending the $18 to add this to your shelf. Ivan Ramen: Love, Obsession, and Recipes from Tokyo’s Most Unlikely Noodle Joint is part cookbook and part narrative. It tells the story of Ivan Orkin, a Long Island-born chef who ended up opening one of the most-praised ramen shops in Tokyo. It will also be your guide to mastering a few ramen dishes of your own if you can’t travel overseas or to his New York Slurp Shop. Those instant packs will be a thing of the past.

We’re not sure when the whole carry your wallet in your back pocket thing started, but we’re not big fans. Not only does it make it easier for pickpockets to swipe your cards and cash, but sitting on a wallet all day isn’t exactly what we’d call “comfortable.” That’s why we endorse the front-pocket wallet, and few versions are smarter and sleeker than the Wally Bifold. The Wally Bifold is a wallet distilled to the essentials. By eliminating unnecessary bulk, Distil Union crafted the Wally Bifold to hold as much as your standard bifold—up to 12 cards and 30 bills—but in a package that slips easily into the front pocket of your jeans.
