Customizable Ramen in Yokohama

Customizable ramen: This is a great idea. I could combine spicy beef ramen, soy sauce, green onions, and sriracha.

A shop inside a ramen museum is offering visitors an unusual souvenir: custom ramen kits.

The shop allows fans of the noodles to choose their own ramen ingredients from among more than 5,000 combinations and take the packages home with them in unique presentation boxes.

They also have the option of having their names and photographs printed on the finished product, which costs about ¥750.

(That’s about $9)

Shop staff also give visitors a 20-minute interactive lesson on how to better enjoy the noodles, along with a free tasting.

I can’t imagine what you could learn in a 20 minute ramen eating lesson, but obviously I need to start a consulting firm.

PS – Can anyone find the link to “My Ramen Kitchen”? I cannot find it.
