Make a creamy, umami filled vegetarian ramen in a real restaurant with 2 chefs!

(Vegetarian) Ramen
Ramen or ラーメン (as you might have already seen all over Tokyo!) is essentially noodles and soup - a staple dish in Japan.
Picture a steaming bowl filled to the brim with slurp-worthy goodness. It's a symphony of flavours and textures that dance in your mouth.
The springy noodles, bathed in a savoury broth that has been simmered to perfection, hug tender selection of vegetarian toppings - typically a lovely roasted tomato, or a fiery Maitake mushroom!
Ramen is the best comfort food, a warm embrace on a chilly day, and a culinary journey that will leave you craving more.

Gyoza (Dumplings)
These little dumplings are like flavour-packed treasure chests, boasting a tantalising blend of veggies wrapped in a thin, delicate dough. They're perfectly pan-fried to achieve that irresistible golden crispiness, while the inside remains wonderfully juicy and bursting with umami goodness.
Dip them in a tangy soy-based sauce, take a satisfying bite, and let the explosion of flavours transport you to the bustling streets of Japan.
Gyoza is the ultimate crowd-pleaser, whether you're enjoying them as a snack, appetiser, or even a meal.

  • Ramen


    Ramen is a noodle soup dish and perhaps one of the most popular Japanese dishes. There are many flavours of ramen, such as Shoyu (soy sauce) ramen, Miso ramen, Tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen and so on. Common toppings are Chashu (braised pork), Negi (green onion) and Nori (dried seaweed).

  • Gyoza


    Gyoza is a dumpling using wrapping thing dough to hold the inner ingredients. Most commonly, minced pork, cabbage, Garlic and Leek. The origin of Gyoza is from China but it has evolved uniquely in Japan and now quite different from the Chinese one.

About Host

Konichiwa! My name is Andrew Baba, but you can call me ramen sensei! I've been a ramen 'Otaku' (having a ramen obsession) since a young child and through years of trials and tribulation, I am now teaching people how to make ramen. I am half Japanese as you might tell from my family name and am fluent in both English and Japanese so be great to have some language exchange and hopefully give you insight into the Japanese ways alongside teaching you about ramen.
I am excited to share my knowledge of ramen with you and help you become a ramen master too! Don't worry if you're a beginner - I'll guide you through every step and we'll make sure to have fun along the way. Plus, if you're interested, I can share some interesting facts and stories about Japan and its culture. So, ramen calm and let's make your first bowl of ramen!

I had a wonderful day from start to finish. I was warmly greeted upon arrival at the restaurant by Andrew. Andrew talked us through the different types of ramen and as a vegetarian, two of us, he explained the how to make the dashi meat based and veggie. . Then we proceeded to wash our hands and don our aprons and we started with washing, chopping and cooking various mushrooms and veggies. The experience was superb. You really get to cook your own lunch instead of just watching. I learnt so much over the next 3.30 hours! The vegetables gyozas were so yummy and the veggie ramen was the best one I ever had. Super delicious and I even made my own noodles from scratch, wow I loved the experience and I recommend it to any one who would like to learn about Japanese food. Wether you are a vegetarian, vegan or meat eater this course is adapted to your needs. Andrew went above and beyond and the day it exceeded my expectations. I look forward to returning to Tokyo and to cook again under your supervision. Arigato gozaimasu Andrew-san.

Thank you for the lovely review Juan! :D Remember to send me some photos when you do make ramen at home, be great to see them!

Taking part in the cooking class was one of the highlights of our Japan trip. As vegetarians (and former Tonkotsu Ramen lovers), we were never fully satisfied with the veggie options at Ramen restaurants, as the soups tend to be rather thin. The recipe from Andrew, however, taught us how to make a thick and delicious veggie Ramen soup packed with flavour, and we could not be happier about it. Andrew was also extremely friendly and knowledged. He made sure everyone was having a good time and answered all of our questions no matter how small or silly! I would recommend this cooking class to anyone, even the non-veg Ramen lovers. Thank you for the amazing experience and recipe!

Hi Jessica, Thanks for leaving me a review, it's always really appreciated! And glad you had a good time - it was lovely meeting you!

Trevor, United States of America


Had a lovely time with Andrew and his class last week. Due to my big interests in ramen making, he showed me how to make both types of ramen broths; Chintan and Paitan - I do remember! ;) Very bespoke class, very knowledgeable about ramen and the various small details of every step as well. Seemed like there wasn't a question, he wouldn't have an answer for! This is a very tailored cooking class; he is a ramen expert and would be well versed to show the ramen way to any level of cook interested in this endeavour Thanks again Andrew!

Hi Trevor, Sorry for the late reply although thank you so much for this detailed review - it's really appreciated. I think your review shouts more as to how my class is, rather than my descriptions! haha Lovely to meet you and hope you make some ramen at home soon!
