Hi Everyone - hope you all had a great weekend! As some of you may know, Dojo has undergone renovations a year and a half ago and we have added a ramen shop to the restaurant. It sounds a bit complicated, but really, it isn't. You can access the Dojo Ramen Shop from within the restaurant or enter from a separate outside entrance.

Ramen has definitely become a popular choice of food and is spreading like wildfire across the United States. The definite origin of ramen is not clear. However, many say that it is of Chinese origin. The first ramen shop in Japan opened in 1910, in Yokohama. Currently, there is a popular Ramen Museum in Yokohama where it harbors the most popular ramen shops within Japan in one location -- right inside the museum.

What makes a perfect ramen bowl? It really depends on each person's tastes. From the type of noodles, to the type of broth, every ramen shop is unique in its flavors and presentation. At DOJO RAMEN, we have shoyu ramen (chicken broth based), tonkotsu ramen (pork broth based), miso ramen based (chicken & pork broth based), and vegetable ramen (vegetable broth based). We also have ramen specials here and there! For specials, we have the Yuzu Shio Kaisen Ramen (seafood broth based), Tomato Ume Tonkotsu Ramen (pork broth based). For the summer, we have a seasonal special called Salmon Tsukemen (cold noodles with salmon based ramen soup).

We are definitely thinking of having something new to start at the end of summer, just in time for fall. Open to suggestions!!
