When I see a person who is wearing a ramen t-shirt,
I immediately think this person is kind, nice, and cool.
Because I feel like I found my fellow.
It is like when you travel abroad and you hear something in your language.
What?! Am I not alone here? Have you ever had this experience?
You really want to talk to the person because of this familiarity...
1. There are so many types of ramen t-shirt
Simple ramen t-shirts, ramen t-shirts with words,
Combinations of ramen and other elements like animals,
Ramen t-shirts about instant noodle brands, etc..
2. A simple ramen t-shirt has only an image of ramen on it
The image of ramen can be a realistic picture, illustration, or drawing.
Usually the ramen is located in the front center of the t-shirts
Or on the chest.
3. Noodles can be all over on the t-shirts
It actually looks stylish!
4. Ramen t-shirts with words make other people smile
It can be words with twists or straightforward words that are related to ramen like these words below…
Words with twists are…
- Send noods
- Super men
- My favorite type of men
- I’m so ramentic
- The only men I want is Ramen
Straightforward words are…
- Feed me ramen
- Noodle master
- Instant lunch
- Happiness in a cup
- Ramen life
- Please try to ramen calm
5. Ramen t-shirts that are a combination with animals are popular too
Cute animal illustrations and ramen bowls go well together.
Cats are the most popular animal for ramen t-shirts. It includes manekineko.
Another example is a dog.
It seems that shiba inu are popular for that.
This might be because animals that are related to Japan go well with this theme.
Here is a list of animals for ramen t-shirts…
6. Anime and other entertainments with ramen are popular too
I think this is because the characters in these anime love eating ramen.
Here are some examples…
- Dragon ball
Other merchandised characters can go with ramen too
I hope they are merchandised with the original rights owners.
7. Designs related to Japan with ramen are common too
Like Japanese scenery, buildings, and culture are often used to accompany ramen.
- Torii gates
- Fuji mountain
- The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Hokusai
8. Instant noodle brands on t-shirts
For advertising purposes, some instant noodle brands make their own t-shirts.
I think it is a smart marketing tactic!
I have seen many Maruchan or Nissin t-shirts in town.
9. Ramen shop t-shirts are other options
These are t-shirts that workers at ramen shops wear.
Usually, these t-shirts are dark colors like navy, gray, and black.
And there are some logos and shop names in white.
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.
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."
