The film celebrates 50 years of diplomatic relations between Singapore and Japan, and what better way to bring nations together than a bowl of beloved ramen, the Japanese staple dish with distinct Chinese origins? The plot follows Masato, a young Ramen chef, who leaves his hometown in Japan to embark on his own culinary journey and seek out his Singaporean mother’s family.
Hanuman’s Jimmy Shu grew up in Sri Lanka. The only son of a renowned restaurateur, Jimmy developed a love of food, of delighting guests and consistently innovating delicious dishes. When not travelling to find new inspiration, Jimmy can be found on Sunday mornings at Darwin’s Rapid Creek markets, prodding, sniffing, tasting and chatting with the stallholders.
