Ramen, a noodle soup dish is one of the most popular Japanese foods around the world. Originated in China, ramen has evolved distinctively in Japan over time and ramen restaurants can be found anywhere in Japan and each area has its own unique regional variations.
Ramen consists of three main elements: noodles, broth and toppings. Most noodles are made from four basic ingredients: wheat flour, salt, water, and kansui, a type of alkaline mineral water. The broth is the base of ramen and is usually made with either chicken or pork bone, as well as other ingredients such as seaweed, dried bonito, dried sardines, vegetables and sometimes seafood or other ingredients. For toppings, each restaurant chooses its favorites, but normally we can find cha-siu or roast pork, dried seaweed, green onion, pickled bamboo stems and boiled egg.
Through our Ramen course, the students will learn this unique cuisine, from basic ramen making skills including noodle making, different types of dashi broth, toppings and flavors, under the guidance of the instructor who is a professional ramen chef.
