The many varieties of Ramen 🇯🇵

The many varieties of Ramen 🇯🇵
By CookUp • Issue #17 • View online
This week we’ll dive into Japanese Ramen (literally: “pulled noodles”). A few hundred years before instant ramen appeared on the scene (invented in 1958), ramen rose to fame in Asia as a go-to dish for blue collar workers. While most people typically think of ramen as Japanese in origin, this slurpable dish actually traces its roots back to China.
A typical ramen noodle soup consists of Chinese wheat noodles served in a broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork, nori (dried seaweed), menma (bamboo shoots), and scallions. Let’s get to it and cook up some delicious ramen of your own.
