World of food – Japanese Ramen

Tampopo

The fast food of Japan is surprisingly healthy and puts instant ramen (noodles) to shame. Throughout [simpletag]Japan[/simpletag], there are many regional variations on the dish so as you travel throughout the country it is easy to become familiar with the local flavours. From the top of Japan to the bottom, ramen enthusiasts take great pride in their distinct version of ramen. To understand how to eat ramen properly as well as Japan’s food culture as a whole it’s a good idea to see the film Tampopo, which centres around a ramen restaurant and is widely available with English subtitles.
