What makes it authentic Japanese ramen? There are five things that make up ramen, said Abram Plaut, Shono’s Bay Area-based business partner known as Ramen Beast for his ramen reviews and coming ramen app. Those five pillars are: soup, noodles, toppings, oil, and tare (the sauces mixed in).  Those can combine in an infinite number of variations, meaning that ramen is “very simple,” said Plaut, but also very complex. Much of the ramen around the Bay Area, he said, is really just “noodle soup.” But Mensho perfects the combination of all five pillars to elevate the dish beyond soup. -
