With its roots as a Chinese noodle dish, ramen spread to Japan and integrated with the local food-culture.
In 1859 Japan opened its ports to the world, bringing in linguistic interpreters from China and Western countries. Foreign settlements were set up in Japan’s major port towns, where Chinese restaurants began to line the streets. This gave way to the formation of China Town. There, the Chinese noodle dish that would later become the source of Japanese ramen was served. In time, the Japanese locals began to eat at these Chinese establishments, some of which began to set up their own independent operations, selling noodles from carts (or yatai) on the streets.
The difference with Japanese ramen and the Chinese noodles can be seen in the soup stock, or dashi. The soup used for Chinese noodle dishes is used in several other Chinese soup dishes, whereas the soup stock used in Japanese ramen was created with only ramen in mind. Being a treasure-trove of umami, with anywhere from five to up to forty different ingredients used to make it, that’s one reason why ramen soup has drawn attention from around the world.
