The Japanese are the population in the world that eats the most noodles.

There are many different gastronomic styles within noodles. Common to them all is that they are suitable for a busy workday.

Yep, the Japanese are just as busy as everyone else. They just do not want to compromise on their health. What I mean is that even though they are thunderously busy, their fast food must still be healthy.

In Japan, there are 8 different kinds of noodles.

Most noodles are made on wheat or buckwheat though, with the exception of one which is made on konnyaku.

Enjoy Christmas time with a healthy and tasty ramen soup, as it is made in Tokyo


December equals food and coziness on several levels for me.

Drink mulled wine and eat apple slices. Eat wonderful dinners at the city’s restaurants and not least Christmas lunch. Of course I also have to snack a bit like Christmas cookies and Christmas candy.

In order for the whole thing to not go overboard I have also put in a few days with a little healthier food. I do this by eating ramen or udon soup as it is served in Tokyo.

It fits in perfectly with the busy Christmas days, as it does not take much time to make when the fish stock is made. It’s a great taste, it is bursting with vitamins and minerals while detoxifying the body.

I’m probably not the only one who feels this way, which is why I have planned a noodle soup course just before Christmas before it starts. You can read more about the class Noodle soup for beginners

Fukuoka: Review of Ide chanpon

Fukuoka is an area of Japan located 1½ hour flight from Tokyo. It is a green area in Japan which also offers rolling hills, fields and forest.

Fukuoka is known throughout Japan for having the best noddle restaurants.

In June 2015 I visited the restaurant Ide Chanpon which is known to be the best restaurant. They only have noodle soups on the menu which made and served in different versions and flavors.
I was served a big bowl of tasty noodle soup called Champon, the soup contained fish, seafood, vegetables and noodles.
It tasted absolutely fantastic. The gentle and round fund added fresh vegetables, fish, seafood and noodles tasted rude well. It is a right and a restaurant which I highly recommend.
