Understanding Mazemen, Japan's No-Broth Ramen | Food Skills
- Published on Jul 31, 2017
- In the U.S., the word "ramen" conjures up images of chewy yellow noodles and bubbling vats of tonkotsu-style broth. But lately, a different style of noodle-making has been capturing the imaginations of ramaniacs everywhere. Enter: mazemen. Fresh off a cameo on Aziz Ansari's Master of None, Yuji Haraguchi's mazemen is a broth-less ramen topped with bacon, egg, and bonito flakes. Customers are tasked with mixing the ingredients together, and the result is a heap of gooey, yolk-and-pork covered noodles, sans soup. Mazemen is the perfect bowl for ramen-lovers who crave noodles-and little else.
