Ramen Essentials

Ramen shop essentials

Ramen, with its origins in Chinese lamian, is considered a national dish of Japan. Ramen is to Japanese people as hamburgers or sandwiches are to American people. Instant noodles have long been a favorite junk food for people in the U.S. but now, ramen shops are popping up everywhere (especially in New York City) and non-Japanese chefs are creating their own interpretation of the Japanese noodle dish. Even in Japan, every region has its own style of ramen, displaying the local ingredients available in the area. 

Ramen is composed of soup, noodles and garnish, and the soup is composed of stock, taré and kaori abura. Taré is the flavoring of the soup and the kaori abura is the oil, that provides the aroma. The stock provides the body and richness of the soup.
