長崎お土産 (Souvenir Ramen from Nagasaki)



My High School students took their annual field trip to Nagasaki last week. Omiyage, the obligatory gifts that you need to bring back, was a given. Expecting a couple rice crackers, I begged my girls for ramen. And sure enough, 2 of my 4 classes brought me back some Nagasaki ramen. Champon to be exact. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


But how to make it? I don't actually own a stove yet at my new apartment.


Hey Keizo, help me out!


Walking into a ramen shop and asking them to cook a bowl that you bought somewhere else is a definite no-no. That being said, Keizo and the Bassanova crew hooked it up.


Nice smell!



It was a bit salty, and the fact that there is corn in it makes it strange... but it's the thought that counts. It's actually the first time I've had champon from what I can remember. A strange type of ramen for sure. bits of seafood and vegetables are wok fried, then the soup and noodles are added together. It's almost more of a soup yakisoba than a ramen.

Thanks again! How about some reaction videos:




Wow, we should invest in some acting lessons before we continue down this road.


We had to try the secret Bassanova menu. If you read Go Ramen, you'll see a lot of this. The secret back fat is a great addition to the ramen. Nice work!


And the secret pork bowl was rad. Secret sauce!


Congrats Boom.
