Nagasaki Champon (Lunch)

Updated

Not Your Typical Ramen Dish

Champon is a noodle dish that originated in Nagasaki. The dish was created with the intent to provide cheap and filling meals for Chinese students studying in Japan during the Meiji period. Champon has since become a specialty food of Nagasaki and has spread across the country, each area with their own take on the dish. Nagasaki champon is quite a nutritious meal as well, containing seafood, meat, some mushrooms, and vegetables. The dish is also known for it's particularly rich and thick broth made with whole chickens and pork bones. The ingredients, including the ramen noodles made specifically for champon, are all cooked in one pan with the broth which is much different from how you prepare your typical ramen.
