Next About Ramen

Meaning

Ramen refers to a traditional Japanese noodle type. The terms «ra» and «men» mean literally «elongated pasta». In Japan they are part of the everyday cuisine. They can be served either hot or cold. A distinction is made between:

Ramen

Noodles with ingredients in a hot and spicy soup

Hiyashi Ramen

Cold noodles, garnished, with dressing (like salad)

History

After many years of isolation, Japan opened its ports to the global trade in 1859. Among others, many Chinese came into the country. And with them their cuisine: In the immigrant districts of the most important seaports emerged more and more Chinese noodle restaurants which were also attended with increased frequency by locals. Some Japanese opened their own noodle business. This was the birth of the ramen culture in Japan.

Diversity and tradition

Ramen are spreading gradually across the country. During that process appeared at least 30 regional variations with up to 40 different ingredients. Currently there exist around 200.000 ramen shops in Japan, called ramen-ya. Most of them are little traditional family businesses- each of them with their own secret soup recipe.

Ramen, Udon, Soba

In contrast to the original Chinese ramen, the noodle types udon and soba are considered to be a Japanese “invention”. Even the Statistical Office in Japan distinguishes between ramen-shops which are in the category “Chinese Restaurants” whereas udon- and soba restaurants (like sushi bars) are considered traditional Japanese cuisine.


Ramen

The long, thin traditional noodle made of wheat flour and water

Udon

The thickest noodle of the Japanese cuisine, lightly salted

Soba

Buckwheat noodle, symbolizes a long life


Slurping allowed

Last, but not least: the flavors of a ramen, udon or soba meal develop best when you slurp the noodles. In Japan, loud slurping is a sign that you enjoy the meal. – And here as well.
