Ramen Food Trucks
Food trucks that specialize in Ramen Noodles
Increasing in popularity are food trucks, & along with that, food truck gatherings. Yet as many as I’ve been to, I have yet to see a Ramen Noodle Food Truck.
Perhaps that is because I’ve not been to San Francisco, California, where I could easily find Hapa Ramen who makes a unique bowl of noodles. They serve locally sourced, organic ingredients. As they put it, We use the good stuff
Organically raised pork, chickens that enjoyed roaming around their pastures, & locally sourced konbu. Also they use seasonal, local vegetables from the best farms—Catalan, Dirty Girl, Star Route, Serendipity, Knoll, and Marin Roots, to name a few.
Perhaps you have read Omnivore’s Dilemma and watched Food Inc, realizing that local, organic is the way to go with food. For us, the reasons are even simpler: it tastes way better and we want to support the local farmer to complete the circle for the local economy.
Then there is the Ramen Rickshaw in Springfield, Ohio.
The Ramen Rickshaw showcases comfort food products, carefully refined to accommodate the tastes & expectations of the Springfield market. They have produced variations of three iconic Japanese culinary dishes: fried rice, Japanese curried rice & an entire showcase product of ramen noodle soup! The broth is based on a family recipe handed down from relatives who owned their own ramen noodle shop in a little country village in Japan. Both the broth & noodles are handmade from scratch. The Ramen Rickshaw is the featured food truck at the Springfield Rotary Gourmet Food Truck Competition!
