In a culture known for its adherence to tradition, ramen has shown the ability to innovate and create its own story
Ramen is the Japanese version of Chinese noodle soup. It came to Japan from the island of Okinawa in the south west that belonged to China until Japan took over it. It then made its way from China to central Japan when the country reopened its borders during the Meiji Restoration at the end of the 19th century. This fusion dish is relatively modern in its history and continues to evolve based on various regional differences and individual touches.
Today the kodawari or artisanal movement dominates the world of ramen in which chefs bring vanguard cuisine concepts to ramen, taking care of important details such as modern techniques, producing all the elements in their own kitchen, or obtaining products from certain areas of domination of Japanese origin.
The success of ramen both inside and outside of Japan is due to its relatively short existence in Japanese cuisine. In a culture known for its adherence to tradition, ramen has offered Japanese cooks the ability to innovate and create their own history.
