Ramen restaurant 102: settings, equipment, implements
Considerable popularity of Japanese cuisine worldwide is well known, and is evident through relatively high number of Japanese-themed food service businesses.
In many cases these food businesses specialize in sushi and other authentically Japanese or Japanese-styled offerings, among which ramen in all its forms is gaining more and more popularity.
Such popularity of ramen makes many to think of venturing into ramen business themselves — for example, by starting their own ramen restaurants, so many of which exist in Japan itself.
This popularity of ramen cuisine can be traced to ramen’s extreme versatility, inclusivity, openness to innovation and creativity: regardless of whether you consume meat or not, or whether you can eat pretty much anything or may have certain requirements or restrictions based on your religion or medical conditions — you will feel yourself at home in the world of ramen — which can be made to accommodate more or less any eating pattern.
In search of inspiration and knowledge fledgling ramen entrepreneurs sometimes come to Japan for ramen-shop tours or use Internet to search for any information that may help them form a clear picture, and guide them on their journeys to build and run their own ramen businesses.
There are, however, limits on what can be achieved through those methods: aside from experiencing the process from a customer’s viewpoint, although eating out at ramen shops may offer certain clues as to how they operate and produce their offerings, but there is only so much information that can be learned this way, and what can be found on the Internet is at times sketchy, lacks context or does not offer a holistic picture.
There are ramen schools, like the >one< offered by Yamato, but taking their courses usually requires not an insignificant amount of time, and a certain amount of investment – and whether they are warranted may not be obvious for those who are still at the drawing board of their ramen ventures.
With this in mind, as part of the series of our free online classes on noodles, noodle production, noodle cuisine and noodle food business, Yamato thought to offer a comprehensive orientation on and an extensive introduction of ramen business in general and the operation of ramen shops in particular.
On April 28, 2021, join Yamato for a free online class where we will specifically cover a topic of ramen shop physical infrastructure and functioning: ramen restaurant layout, ramen kitchen equipment, utensils and implements necessary for ramen shop’s effective and smooth operation.
Some content was partially covered in the first part of this series (“Ramen restaurant 101“) while in the second part we will concentrate deeper on the hardware side of the topic, touching upon everything from what cookers are better for making ramen soup, to how better organize different tasks and operations into one a seamless workflow.
The class is Free, and its live broadcast is accessible by the link that will be sent to your email address after you sign up.
a link to the Class’s livestream will be sent to your email address 30 minutes before the start of the class
(NOTE: we are looking forward for, and would definitely welcome your watching the live broadcast, but should that be difficult, you would still be able to watch a recording of the class using the same link)
