demonstration by staff

 

 

First, the staff will demonstrate how to make the ramen. From pouring the soup to boiling the noodles, they will teach you step by step.

Also, you will just learn the methodical process of making ramen but about its heart and soul. For example, we learned that the broth is the most important part of the dish. In fact, ramen broth is always boiled for hours and hours to produce a deep and rich soup. I think making your own ramen will make you fall in love with it even more.

The best part of this experience is of course the eating part;)

 

 

Now it’s time to eat our yummy creations. The hot bowl of ramen noodles is so delicious and filling. I especially like to eat ramen on cold rainy days because I feel like it warms my soul.

The whole experience takes around one hour to one hour and a half. I think it is a great way to spend a morning or an afternoon in Tokyo.
