Easy Japanese ramen

Easy Japanese ramen


And hello everyone! We’re off to the land of the rising sun to discover one of Japan’s most popular dishes, Ramen.

Ramen is a soup made with rice noodles, a meat or fish broth, miso paste and soy sauce, and condiments placed on top of the soup to give it a very Japanese elegance. There are lots of small restaurants offering this dish, which Japanese people often eat on their own after work, on the run. It’s Japanese street food, with simple, healthy and delicious dishes.

During our trip to Japan, meals in these restaurants represented a certain folklore that we loved. We were fascinated by the cooks in these restaurants, who took on all the Japanese codes reflected in the manga cartoons of our youth. Bandannas on foreheads, red and white outfits, they were busy preparing orders in long kitchens, steaming with boiling broths. We watched them closely each time, because we love this dish and wanted to be able to reproduce it at home.


In Japan, as an anecdote, we had to order our ramen from a kind of vending machine placed at the entrance (just as we would have a drinks and sweets machine at home) with the different ramen on offer. Our problem was then to know which of the 15 or 20 to choose without reading the Japanese, but fortunately there was a photo so you could see what it was made of. The most traditional was made with slices of chashu, a kind of braised pork roast, a soft-boiled egg and mixed vegetables served as a condiment. We’re now bringing it home in a variety of forms that we’re testing, using whatever we can find in the fridge.
