Ramen is a popular Japanese noodle dish
Many young people in the United States grew up eating ramen on a regular basis. It was and is a good and quick snack for after school or a tasty meal. Older children or teenagers could easily fix it for themselves and friends.
They simply open up a package of the noodles and boil them in a pan with water on the stove for a few minutes before placing the flavoring in with the broth.
Ramen has long been a favorite noodle dish in Japan, but it was not generally served in restaurants in the United States. Now there seem to be Ramen shops everywhere. They have become very popular with some restaurants having long lines.
The founder of JINYA Ramen Bar is Tomo Takahashi. When he arrived in the United States in 2010, he searched for his favorite Japanese food, which was ramen. He enjoyed the traditional taste and flavor but could not find it in restaurants.
Being the son of a successful restauranteur in Japan, Tomo knew about restaurants. His father had owned a restaurant named Jinya. He focused on the values of: Delicious food at reasonable prices that would be accessible to all.
Tomo opened his first JINYA in Tokyo in 2000. It was named after a Samurai soldier. When he saw a need for authentic ramen in the United States, he opened up a shop in California. They are now located in many other areas as well.
There are two locations of the restaurant in the Salt Lake City area at 675 East 2100 South in Salt Lake City and 5905 South State Street in Murray. There is also one in Lehi at 3725 Thanksgiving Way.
