Our Story ブログ
At its heart, Nomiya is a local, family-owned business that has been in the restaurant industry for over 45 years. Our head chef, Jeff Chan, started his culinary career in 1971, specializing in Asian cuisine – specifically, the labour intensive art of Dim Sum. Chef Chan moved to Canada in 1988 with his family, including his wife, Kin; daughter, Wing; and son, Tony. He proceeded to open several successful Asian restaurants, including this one, Nomiya!
After an eye-opening visit to Japan, the Chan Family’s wish was to bring traditional ramen to the City of Edmonton, opening the first Nomiya in 2011. Managed by Wing, Nomiya’s ramen process utilizes all of the techniques and components of a traditional ramen. The homemade broth, Chef Chan’s special recipe, is a labour of love 45 years in the making, taking at least 8 hours to make.
Whether you are enjoying the perfectly salted flavour of the Shio Ramen or the peanut flavour punch of the Tan Tan, each ramen is created with sauces unique to Nomiya. Nomiya’s ramen is always finished with the ideal amount of char sui , fixings and noodles to complete the package.
Nomiya’s mission for ramen is to provide simple, flavourful ramen that Edmontonians enjoy.
With ramen and other Japanese cuisine, Wing continues her Father’s legacy of great food. Her wish is that Nomiya will bring a whole new culinary experience to Edmonton that is approachable and delicious!
