The Ramen Poster 2.0, by Fanny Chu (24x36)
After designing for the first ramen poster, Fanny Chu was exposed to many types of ramen that she finally got to try for the first time such as Tori-Paitan (ramen with a rich chicken broth that was made similar to Tonkotsu style) and Ramen Burger. (Grilled ramen buns sandwiching roast pork, scallions, and other ramen toppings) Other than local Japanese ramen, Chu also want to introduce ramen recipes that have misleading name such as Yakisoba and Abura-soba, both having "soba in their names." Like most people, she thought they are probably soba noodles. (buckwheat) However, they are not made with soba noodles at all; instead, wheat noodles or ramen noodles are typically used for those recipes.
As these discoveries pile up within the year, Chu decided to design a second ramen poster for the new year of 2016. The Ramen Poster 2.0 will introduce 42 ramen recipes (her old one has 25) that will blow your mind with more variety of must-try ramen in Japan!
What makes a bowl of ramen delicious-looking is the beautiful presentation of the bowl, broth, noodle, and toppings that are carefully made and arranged by the chef. This is how Chu wanted this project to be presented: a poster full of tasty ramen that eveyone wanted to take a bite right away!
The Ramen Poster also has its educational part. There are lists of common broth, sauce, and toppings that are used for each regional recipes or a particular ramen dish.
While different parts of Japan have their own proud recipes, Chu wanted to show them on this poster too. For example, in Yamagata, the local specialty cold ramen is very popular. (even in Winter) Sometimes, there are even ice cubes in the beef broth to keep it cold.
Underneath each illustration, there is a list of ingredients of what each snacks are made out of. Sometimes, gathering a few ingredients will already make you a delicious homemade ramen bowl!
