Ramen is a Japanese soup noodle that consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in pork, chicken, or fish-based broth flavored with soy sauce or miso. The dish would normally include toppings such as sliced pork (chashu), dried seaweed (nori), boiled egg, and green onions. However, every region in Japan has their own variation of ramen.
Unsatisfied with the taste of a ramen establishment he tried, the founder of Santouka, Hitoshi Hatanaka, decided to open his own ramen shop in Asahikawa, Hokkaido Japan in 1988. It all began with only 9 seats and 1 item—Shio Ramen (salt flavor). Since then, they have grown into a 50+ restaurant franchise serving ramen not only throughout Japan, but also overseas in North American and Asian cities. And the only Ramen Santouka in Vancouver opened on February 26, 2010.
