Furious Spoon originated from Chef Shin’s dreams. In them, he peers back in time to 1960 Muroran, Japan, in Hokkaido, a port town where his grandfather owned a modest ramen shop. In these dreams, he worked in the store with his grandfather where they had daily conversations about noodles. He could smell the aromas and taste the flavors in striking detail. Today, Chef Shin, with the help of restaurateur Anshul Mangal, has realized these dreams and recreated his grandfather’s ramen shop in Chicago.
