Menu


Summers in Japan are known for sweltering heat and humidity — not always the best weather for ramen. When the temperature climbs, diners satisfy their craving with hiyashi chuka, a cold noodle dish topped with fresh vegetables, chilled pork and a sweet and tangy sauce. HiyaChu from Tokyo specializes in healthy, restorative noodles to cool your body and relax your mind on a hot summer day.

We invite you to join us and enjoy a delicious bowl during the HiyaChu residency at Ramen Lab.

Starting August 2.

Meet chef Naoko Miura

Chef Naoko Miura was born in Sendai, Japan. She started her career as a restaurant manager at the young age of 19, and created numerous top-selling dishes during that time.  

After she became a mother, Naoko chose to leave the industry that she loved to focus on her family. At the same time, she explored different careers, working for more than 10 years as a buyer importing fabrics and other goods from Hawaii. In addition, Naoko taught the art of hula to students in Japan, which culminated in an event held in Hawaii with over 15,000 participants.

Throughout this time, she thought extensively about food and about sharing her knowledge with others. As a result of her life experiences (which included juggling her career and single motherhood), Naoko founded HiyaChu. Her goal for HiyaChu is to provide easy, well-balanced, and nutritious meals to people, especially those with busy lifestyles.

What makes a bowl of ramen irresistible? Deeply developed broth, thoughtful toppings, perfectly paired noodles and the elusive, all-important umami flavor. Here, we break down the elements of a perfect ramen dish.

Umami, the savory flavor you can't quite put your finger on, is found in ingredients like mushrooms, konbu, soybeans and chicken. Difficult to describe, impossible to ignore.

The 5 elements of ramen appeal to taste, aroma, texture and aesthetic. By arranging these elements like notes in a chord, the ramen harmonies are endless.

Noodles come in all shapes and sizes. They are selected to pair perfectly with the other elements of the ramen dish based on surface area, retention and slurp volume.
