Chinese Restaurant Rai Rai Ken
Tokyo Ramen

Ozaki Kenichi, owner of Rai Rai Ken, a ramen shop that opened in 1910 in Tokyo’s Asakusa district, began serving diners a soup base that wasn't the ordinary 19th-century version. He incorporated a soy sauce-based seasoning with “menma” (bamboo shoots), “charshu” (sliced roast pork) and sliced green onion. The combination was such a hit with customers, these ingredients became the standard blend for ramen for Tokyo.
