On today’s episode Yuji Haraguchi talks about how he took his pop-up focusing on mazemen (brothless ramen) and turned it into a multi-location business operating in New York and Tokyo. After graduating college, Yuji began to work for a fish distributor based in Boston and decided to start cooking his own ramen and mazemen recipes. What began as a pop-up led to family meal tastings at Roberta’s, Smorgasborg, a Whole Foods residency and finally his own shop in East Williamsburg. Yuji now has ramen shops and fish markets in both Brooklyn and Manhattan and owns and operates a restaurant in Tokyo and a shop in Kyoto.
