Ohgigatadon: How to Create Restaurant-Like Ramen Noodles


Ohgitgatadon is a bowl characterized by a straight and steep exterior.

This type of bowl presents your food beautifully and is very stylish..

The word “ohgi” means a fan, “gata’ means a shape,

And “don” means a bowl.

It looks like a fan. Right?

1. If ohgigatadon was in Power Rangers, it will be the Blue Ranger 

It has a cool and smart look.

And sometimes narcissistic.

Do you agree?

2. Ramen shops that use ohgigatadon are classy

15 years ago, in Ikebukuro, I was at a ramen restaurant.

I felt this restaurant was different from other ramen restaurants.

The interior was elegant and stylish and there was a nice background music.

This restaurant used ohgigatadon for their ramen bowls.

Unlike traditional bowls,

This bowl is considered modern and very stylish and therefore,

Most commonly used in high-end restaurants.

They focus on the quality of the noodles rather than quantity.

3. But wait, ohgigatadon is also very user-friendly

Especially in a commercial kitchen.

Do you know why?

Because it is easy to hold, stackable,

And it does not take up much storage space.

And…

4. You can save ramen soup

Did you know?

Making ramen soup is time consuming and its ingredients are expensive.

So as a business owner, you want to save this soup.

Ohgitatadon has less capacity than other types of bowls,

Because it has a steep-angled body.

5. The only disadvantage of ohgigatadon is its capacity

As I mentioned above,

The contents you can put in is much less than bowls of other shapes.

If you want to fill up the bowl with a lot of soup, noodles, and toppings, you better avoid this type.

But for regular portions, the ohgigata bowl does a great job!

6. It is also called kittachidon

"Kit" means to cut, "tachi' means to stand, and "don" means a bowl in Japanese.

Due to Covid, a lot of good ramen restaurants have closed

It makes me feel very angry.

I used to eat ramen out frequently,

But in this situation, 

Ramen shops have started to shorten the hours, limit the number of customers, or even closed their shops.

It has affected the industry so much.

I am afraid good ramen will be gone

But meanwhile, you still can enjoy ramen in the comfort of your own home.

Here are some of my recommendations for ramen lovers.

1. Sapporo Ichiban Shio Flavor

MY THOUGHTS OVERALL ★★★★☆

In truth, Sapporo Ichiban delivers a good quality shio ramen experience.

Actually, it is very difficult to find good shio ramen.

Do you know why?

Because it is very difficult to make it since it is very simple.

There are many good shoyu and miso flavored instant noodles out there.

But I feel specifically, the shio flavor market is monopolized by Sapporo Ichiban.

Think about this for a moment having good shio ramen for your dinner with your favorite ramen toppings.

Now, you want some, don’t you?

2. Nissin Raoh Shoyu Flavor

MY THOUGHTS OVERALL ★★★★★

It is nearly impossible to make restaurant quality noodles at home without the right tools and equipment.

How can you beat that?

Using Raoh’s shoyu flavour will help you achieve this easily. This is top-notch ramen hands down!

One pinnacle of instant noodles is the soy sauce flavor. It is expensive compared to regular ones but let me tell you, it deserves every single penny.

In a nutshell, I loved every bit of it.

...And I am sure you will too.

3. The problem here is that no toppings come with these packets.

Here are some topping options and recipes for you.

Nori

4. Have you ever faced these issues...

A lack of large, high-quality soup bowl sets at home?

Are you still struggling with...

😢 ...small bowls that aren’t large enough for soups, noodles and toppings.

😢 ...spillage every time you eat out of your bowl.

😢 ...low-quality tableware and utensils that don’t compliment your food.

Look no further, 

Our best-selling bowls are here to fix all the issues you face with small, inefficient tableware.

After struggling with spillage and leakage during dinner time, 

We decided to introduce APEX S.K’s large soup bowls to the market.

Want to hear why some people absolutely love our ramen bowls?

"These are perfect for homemade ramen soup nights! The bowls we have at home are not large enough and my wife has been trying to look for larger bowls. I'm so glad I stumbled upon these. They made a great Christmas gift for the whole family. Everybody was so excited and we can't wait to put them to use on our next ramen night."

"Amazing quality! They are very durable. I dropped it from standing height to test if they would break, but no dents or anything."

"The shape, the color, and the overall appearance of the bowl was exactly what I was looking for - the shape, the color"

About the Author

Kei is a self-proclaimed ramen lover, blog writer and founder of "Apex S.K. Japanese tableware".

"I am from Ibaraki, Japan.

Ramen is great! It can bring you a sense of happiness and satisfaction that no other food can. I have been eating ramen for 30 years.

If there is no ramen, my life would be miserable.

Ten years ago, I worked as an office worker. The job was really stressful - excessive working hours, low wages, unpaid overtime work, and constantly being yelled at by my boss.

I was new and alone, no girlfriend, no friends, and felt very lonely.

My only oasis was the ramen shop near the office. For me, the ramen chef there was literally an angel. I saw a halo on his head. (No joke)

Tonkotsu shoyu ramen was my all-time favorite. He made ramen with broth chock-full of umami flavor, nice chewy handmade noodles, and tender chashu.

My greatest dream is connect people with ramen through my blog. I want to share a lot of interesting and funny stories and ramen trivia with you.

Knowing more about ramen can help you appreciate your ramen and make it taste extra delicious."
