Satisfying more than just hunger, Ramen Shop explores the pivotal role of food in understanding and honouring your roots. After the death of his father who ran a much-loved ramen store in Japan, Masato journeys to Singapore, where he reconnects with a long-lost grandmother in the kitchen. Just note, you may get hungry as fish curries, bak kut teh (a pork rib broth) and whole crabs dance across your screen. It's not all sentimental scenes and shots of spicy soup bowls, however. On Masato's culinary pilgrimage, he faces up to the effects of the Japanese occupation of Singapore. Food for thought, indeed.
