Vatten Ramen

ABOUT VATTEN RAMEN

The name ‘VATTEN RAMEN’ comes from the triple cross symbol of the city flag of Amsterdam. In Japanese, “Vatten” means a cross. Moreover, ‘Vatten’ is often used as a word meaning “however” in the Hichiku area (Fukuoka and Nagasaki) in Kyushu region of Japan where the owner and co-founder, Mr. Yuta Tomiyasu and Mr. Hideto Kawahara, were raised. 400 years ago, this particular area is historically known for being only allowed to trade with the Netherlands during the Japanese Edo period, when Japan traded with no other countries. Therefore, it is no exaggeration to say that the culture and society of the area had been largely and uniquely influenced by the Dutch culture during the Japanese isolation – Sakoku – period, meaning that the Dutch people may have had the same ramen for lunch and dinner 400 years ago in Japan.

VATTEN RAMEN EXPRESS IN OOST


 
After the POP-UP store of VATTEN RAMEN at Clubkoffie, Mr. Chiel Griffioen, the owner, offered us the opportunity to open the location as VATTEN RAMEN EXPRESS, which serves coffee and cheap and quick Japanese dish. We are now open at KRUGERPLEIN 2 for Lunch, Dinner, Coffee, Beer, and Delivery!
Respecting local customers, the concept of VATTEN RAMEN EXPRESS is a “walk-in Ramen cafe restaurant”.
Since the official opening, we welcomed the student organisation from Universiteit van Amsterdam (SEFA International Week, FEB of UvA), as well as many local families and couples. We are looking forward to seeing you there!!

Story

VATTEN RAMEN CHEFS

Our Japanese chefs are very experienced in Japanese Ramen, and they acquired skills for exquisite Ramen directly from Michelin Bib Gourmand awarded chef Mr. Hideto Kawahara. Currently, a few Dutch chefs are learning our unique Ramen cooking method at our kitchen.

RAMEN

It is a typical and traditional Japanese cuisine loved and enjoyed by people in Japan from all the generations across the history. A variety of noodles are bathed and served in a variety of soup stocks. Therefore, the variety of ramen is infinite and countless. There are approximately 51,000 ramen restaurants in Japan, whereas the number of sushi restaurants sums up to approximately 45,000. So, I guess Ramen is very popular among Japanese people.

NOODLES

Our noodles are manufactured accordingly to the unique tastes of our broth soups. At Vatten Ramen Kerkstraat, our chefs use the special dried-noodles named ‘No. 26’ from Hakata, Japan and the curly al-dente noodles. For Vegan Ramen, we only use the gluten free rice noodles.

Soup

At Vatten Ramen Kerkstraat, we serve healthy white broth soup made from locally-produced Dutch chicken, which was deeply stewed for two days in our kitchen by our Japanese chefs. Also, we serve soy sauce bonito & seaweed soup, which gives traditional Japanese mild taste. In the end, our chefs developed completely animal-product-free soup for Vegan Ramen.

ART OF RAMEN

As we produce Ramen in Amsterdam, we have to combine Japanese traditions and modern Western concepts, of which accomplishments are almost ‘beautiful arts in bowls’. The mixture of good parts of many ideas is our core value. Therefore, we appreciate and respect all the people living and thriving in the great city of Amsterdam. Vatten Ramen crews serve the best Ramen bowls for the smiles of every customer.
