E.A.K. Ramen aka Machida Shoten in Japan, started back in 2008 in Machida City, Japan. This was our first shop to fulfill our goal to spread the IEKEI style of ramen to the world. Our purpose was to be a shop that is loved by everyone, but especially locals. We wanted to provide the best possible ramen, service and atmosphere to our neighbors. With this in mind, we started our mission to spread IEKEI to the world.
