  1. Nagasaki Chinatown Champon
    Champon features thick, smooth, chewy noodles and creamy pork based soup. The satisfying dish with a pile of vegetables was born in Nagasaki, being influenced by Chinese cuisine. You can add cabbage, shrimp, onion, squill and so on to make it much more like the authentic chanpon of Nagasaki Chinatown.
  2. Kanto Kitsune Udon
    Did you know that udon soup tastes differently in western Kansai area and eastern Kanto area? While in Kansai, where Osaka is located, the soup has a subtle and light taste, in Kanto, where Tokyo is located, the soup looks darker and has a stronger taste. People from each area often argue which is better. Which would you prefer?!
  3. Tonjiru Udon
    The chilly season has come to Japan, which means we want a warm bowl of tonjiru! Tonjiru literally means pork soup and contains pork slices and vegetables in hot miso soup. When the dish is combined with udon, the result is fantastically delicious winter meal.
  4. Rich Miso Ramen
    Chewy noodles in miso soup. The rich flavor of miso matches well with the ginger, which adds the soup a pleasant, refreshing taste. Good news is that it’s relatively low in calories! Contains little pieces of green onion, corn, and red pepper.
  5. Sapporo Shrimp Miso Ramen
    Hokkaido has lots of regional ramen varieties in its vast land, including shrimp miso ramen. The flavor of shrimp is strong but matches well with the taste of miso. If you’re a shrimp person, it might be so tasty that you can finish the whole soup.
