What is the difference between TRA and other schools for ramen?


The biggest difference between other ramen schools are that you can master the science of making an original ramen in 7 days. Unlike vague “watch and learn, trust your senses” type lessons, our recipes are detailed and based on a clear rationale. The proportions of soup, oil, sauce, and other ingredients are carefully calculated for a reason. This allows you to master the recipe in a short time, even if you have no experience.

These are the differences from other ramen schools.
