Saika Ramen (A Knock-off Version of a Famous Restaurant's Ramen)

Saika Ramen (A Knock-off Version of a Famous Restaurant's Ramen)

This is the famous Tenri-Yatai restaurant's Saika ramen!

You can easily enjoy this at home without having to go all the way to Nara.

Ingredients: 2 people

Chinese cabbage
Chinese garlic chives
1/2 bunch
Thinly sliced pork( I recommend pork belly)
50~100 g
800 ml
★Chinese Chicken stock powder
3 tablespoons
5 tablespoons
★Soy sauce
5 tablespoons
8 cloves
1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon
Maruchan pot ramen
1 package


1. Cut the Chinese cabbage into about 1.5 cm pieces, cut the Chinese chives into about 4~5 cm pieces, and cut the pork into easy-to-eat pieces.
2. Finely chop half of the garlic, and grate the other half.
3. Heat up sesame oil in a frying pan (or pot), and sauté the pork and Chinese cabbage. Add in the Chinese chives after it has cooked through and quickly sauté, and then take it out on a plate.
4. Add ★ to the same frying pan (or pot), bring to a boil, and add in Step 3. (The soup is done).
5. I recommend using Maruchan pot noodles! The real Saika ramen uses extremely thin noodles, and this is the closest I can find!
6. Add the boiled noodles to the soup, and it is done.
7. I add in an egg just like the restaurant does.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love Saika ramen!

But it's a long way to travel to eat it at Tenri's Restaurant.

So, I researched it, and was able to reproduce something similar.

My husband, who has been eating Saika ramen for years, approves of this.

Among all my Saika ramen experiments to reproduce something identical, this is the one that I am most proud of!!
