Is it cham-pon? Is it ramen? A delicious hybrid!


Add cham-pon noodles to udon soup, and add ramen toppings such as beansprouts and spring onions. What do you get? Chan-ra of course! Proudly hailing from Kitakyushu city (also home of ‘grilled curry’) it was devised as a way of filling up the laborers post-war , during scarce times. However, the exact origins remain a mystery for this special dish. This interesting hybrid makes us think of the days of yore when the local port was bustling with activity.
