What is Shio Ramen
Shio means salt in Japanese. It is made with salt and dashi stock and it is one of the more popular ramen varieties along with shoyu ramen. It has been eaten in Japan for a long time.
But there aren’t many Ramen shops with salt ramen on their menu. Salt ramen is much less common than soy sauce, miso, and tonkotsu. The reason? It’s because the flavor is only salt so it is difficult to keep the flavor consistent because the taste is greatly influenced by the soup stock. Ramen enthusiasts said shio ramen is the most difficult seasoning to get right when making ramen so if you want to see the skill of the restaurant, order salt ramen.
By the way, ‘Tonkotsu Ramen’ is a derivative of Shio Ramen!
