Essentially Umamido is a Japanese noodle bar. Our main focus is on ramen noodles, delicious firm wheat based noodles served in a tasty broth. Please do not expect a menu with 100 items at our restaurants, we prefer to focus on one thing and doing it well.
At Umamido you will find traditional Japanese flavours with a local twist. What is it that we really stand for? Well, our name describes it best: Umamido means “The Way of the Savoury”. Savouriness, taste, flavour, that is our philosophy, our religion, our way of living. We try to source the best Japanese and local products to produce the most nutrient, healthiest, but above all the tastiest ramen possible. For instance, our meat and bones come from farmers in the Belgian Ardennes, where pigs can stroll around freely (because hey: Happy pigs make delicious bacon)! Our broths are slow cooked to take up all natural flavors and nutrients.
Preparing the broth takes between 24 and 48 hours of slow cooking which gives it intense flavor, richness and depth; tasty ramen noodles with a chewy texture give flair to your soup, and the lovely toppings such as crunchy vegetables and a couple of slices of slow cooked pork belly will bring you to noodle heaven. The yolky egg is the cherry on the cake, so to speak. Umamido is slow (cooked) food, served fast.
So yes, taste is what it is all about at Umamido, cooking with beautiful products, served with integrity and loads of TLC, Tender Loving Cooking, obviously ;-)
