Ramen is a traditional Japanese noodle soup consisting of wheat noodles, served in a meat or fish-based broth and garnished with meat, fish, dried seaweed and vegetables. The soup is then seasoned with soy sauce or with miso, a thick paste produced from fermented soybeans.

Ramen is the country’s most popular and one of the cheapest and fastest food you can get in Japan. Widely available, ramen restaurants, or ramen-ya, can be found everywhere in the country.

Although a wide variety of ramen exists in Japan, with countless regional variations, ramen can be categorised by its two main ingredients: noodles and soup.

Noodles
Most noodles are made from four basic ingredients: wheat flour, salt, water, and kansui (a type of alkaline mineral water) or sometimes eggs.
The noodles come in various shapes and lengths. It may be thick, thin, or even ribbon-like, as well as straight or wrinkled.

Soup
Ramen soup is generally made from chicken or pork, combined with a variety of ingredients such as kombu (large seaweed), katsuobushi (tuna flakes), niboshi (dried baby sardines), beef bones, shiitake mushrooms and onions. It is then flavoured with salt, miso, or soy sauce. Other late styles include curry ramen and other flavours.
The soups are generally divided into 3 categories:

Shio, or salt ramen is the oldest of all and is a clear, yellowish broth made with plenty of salt and any combination of chicken, vegetables, fish, and seaweed.

4

Shōyu, or soy sauce ramen has a clear brown broth, based on a combination of chicken and vegetable (or sometimes fish or beef) and with plenty of soy sauce, resulting in a salty and savoury soup.

Miso ramen is relatively new. This unique Japanese ramen features a broth that combines copious amounts of miso and is blended with oily chicken or fish broth to create a thick, nutty and slightly sweet soup.

Competition can get quite intense, so each specialty restaurant carefully selects the recipes for noodles, broth and seasonings, and continues to improve the style and taste of ramen. Soup recipes and methods of preparation tend to be closely guarded secrets. Some restaurants are so popular, people wait in long lines for tasting.

Since recent years some restaurants are adapting new trends, making their food more accessible to foreign visitors, some started serving halal ramen. One such restaurant, Naritaya, can be found in the Asakusa district in Tokyo.

Ramen is considered to be an important part of Japanese culture and many museums dedicated to the popular noodle soup, such as Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum, have been opened. The Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum was was opened on March 6th, 1994 and is the world’s first food-themed amusement park.
