Show About Chef Ryuichiro Takahashi, proprietor of Toronto’s RYUS Noodle Bar

Cooking has always been a passion for Chef Takahashi — graduating with a business degree and working in a number of kitchens in Japan, he always dreamed of opening his own place.

Chef Takahashi first arrived in Vancouver to study trade and marketing, essential skills for his future path as owner chef of a ramen restaurant. Upon immigrating to Canada, he then moved to Toronto where he realized his dream of striking out on his own.

Ramen is my favourite, so that’s why I focused on that,” he explained.

Last year, Takahashi was asked to open a stall at the Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum in Japan — the first Canadian to be recognized in those hallowed halls of ramen honour. Chef Takahashi was the first Canadian invitee to set up shop in New York City’s popular Ramen Lab — an exclusive boutique stand-up eatery featuring the world’s best examples of the ubiquitous dish, and Japan’s favourite food.
