Our Ramen is firm, fresh and springy – the result of being made with several types of flour and water with the perfect pH level. Ramen-making is a science from noodle size to texture and we at Tajima select only the finest ingredients. We know that certain noodles compliment certain broths and we pair them perfectly for a mouth-watering dining experience guaranteed to keep you coming back for more.
