    Ramen History
    Ramen has been the staple food of Japan since the late 19th Century, introduced by Chinese immigrants living in Yokohama Chinatown. The word “ra” comes from a Chinese word, and the word “men” means “noodles” in Japanese. It is a simple dish consisting of a meat or fish-based broth, seaweed, chewy noodles, green onions, boiled eggs, and various toppings. The popularity of Japanese cuisine, including ramen, has grown significantly worldwide in recent years, and Thailand is no exception. Due to globalization and cultural exchange, ramen has been introduced to Thai people by Japanese restaurants and chefs who moved to Thailand for job opportunities in the early 2000s. And due to many Japanese companies investing in Thailand, a lot of Japanese expats and businesspeople have brought their food culture with them. As Thai food culture is diverse and open to new foreign food, ramen has become famous in Thailand and also Thai chefs are customizing the ramen dish into a unique Thai-style ramen dish that appeals to local customers. There are now a lot of ramen restaurants offering various styles of dishes, noodles, broth, and toppings. Especially Bangkok is filled with many Japanese cuisine restaurants, ranging from high-end ramen to street food ones. So, if you are lost and confused about which ramen to try, here are the most unique ramen restaurants in Bangkok that are serving unique and slurp-worthy ramen dishes.

    Menya Itto

    Menya Itto, a renowned ramen restaurant, first opened its doors in Shinkoiwa, Tokyo on June 18th, 2010.

At Menya Itto, the primary objective is to bring happiness to people through their exceptional ramen dishes. By embracing and promoting Menya Itto’s philosophy in Thailand, they strive to continue shining a light on the values and traditions that make the restaurant stand out in the world of ramen.

    Originated from the Japanese prefecture of Ehime and gained a Michelin-recognised reputation in Hong Kong, Shugetsu Ramen is definitely a must-try. Each warming bowl of ramen consists of Japanese scallops cooked for 12 hours and handmade soy sauce fermented for 18 months. We have a soft spot for their Abura Soba. The thick noodle is clothed in a combination of shoyu and scallop oil, enhanced by a spoonful of dry fish powder and a plum yolk, and topped with braised pork belly. One slurp, and we guarantee it’ll be your new favourite. For tsukemen, Shugetsu Ramen ticks all the boxes. The dry noodle is thick, chewy, and features a medley of drool-inducing toppings like pork slices and veggies. Moreover, the soup is seafood based, offering a unique sour taste that can only be found in Shugetsu Ramen.

With homemade noodles and high-quality ingredients, their beautiful bowls of ramen will have you wanting more. The Karaka-Men is what you want to order if you’re looking for spicy miso ramen. It consists of thin wavy noodles, pork belly and pork loin, Ippudo’s original tonkotsu broth, spicy minced pork miso, and hot chilli oil for a kick. If you’re not into spicy food, their Shiromaru Motoaji ramen is super delicious. Served with a Hakata-style tonkotsu broth, thin noodles, and pork belly and pork loin chashu, it’ll take your noodle experience to the next level.

    Located in the heart of Soi Padimadee Klang, 69 Rockmen has been serving authentic, clear chicken broth ramen for about two years now. Even though it is a small restaurant, Bangkok foodies have found their preference in the taste and the concept that this restaurant has offered. The restaurant has been flooded with long queues of customers due to its exclusiveness in the number of servings per day. Thus, it is recommended that customers wait one hour before the opening time. The number “69” from the restaurant name means the concept of serving 69 people per day and the number of servings is divided between lunch and dinner. Thus, ramen lovers are fighting to get a seat in this restaurant to experience the live show of chefs making your orders right in front of your table! The signature dish that will warm up your soul is Shio Ramen A, priced at 290 baht. It has a clear but rich soup along with chewy noodles, chashu pork, Chinese spinach, and green onions for appearance. It’s a simple but divine dish that has a bit of umami flavor, and fragrance from the flour of the noodles. It’s a bowl for starters who are just beginning to discover Japanese cuisine.
