“Ramen, Japan’s most popular hobby, has overtaken sushi among international foodies in terms of popularity and coolness. In recent years, the quality of its offerings has grown by leaps and bounds in many cities around the world, supported by a growing group of enthusiasts. RAMEN RAMEN is a celebration of this new reign and a desire to encourage the development of ramen offerings outside Japan.” – Thien Vu Dang, co-director

The event organized by YATAI MTL – LA SEMAINE JAPON. This non-profit organization founded and directed by Yasuko Tadokoro and Thien Vu Dang since 2018, is dedicated to celebrating Japan and bridging the gap between Quebec and Japan.
