  • While most ramen-ya's kitchen's are wide open to see,

    大多數的拉麵店是開放式的 但工作內容不僅僅是你看到的那些

  • you may be surprised at all the work that goes into owning a ramen store yourself.

    經營一間拉麵店所需要付出的努力 是你想像不到的

  • Shio (salt) ramen


  • While ramen is Japanese fast food, it's not a fast process to make.

    雖然拉麵是日本的速食, 但是做出一碗拉麵的過程並不簡單

  • It takes time, dedication, hard work, and knowledge.


  • While he does buy his fresh noodles from a men-ya (that means noodle store),


  • most everything he makes is from scratch.


  • Thanks for waiting, here you go. Here you are.


  • Thank you for waiting. Here you go.

  • What kind of hours does he work?


  • 8am to 11:30pm, six days a week.

    早上8點到晚上11點半 1個禮拜工作6天

  • And this is not the, I'm out of the house, from 8am to 11:30pm,

    這可不是說 早上8點出門 11點半回家

  • so I'm working all that time even though I have breaks.


  • This is non-stop hard work from when he enters the shop until when he leaves.

    我指的是無間斷的勞動 從進了拉麵店到打烊為止

  • If you add it all up, and I did, that's an 80 (really 93) hour work week!

  • My father used to own a Ramen restaurant.


  • He used to be a salary man, but he quit start his own restaurant.

    本來是上班族 辭職後開了一家自己的拉麵店

  • When I was a teenager, I helped in the restaurant.


  • At that time, making Ramen wasn't what I wanted to do with my life.

    那個時候 拉麵並不是我的人生目標

  • It was just helping and it was a part time job.


  • I wanted to get out into the world so I started to work


  • as a sales man, but it was not for me

    當了上班族 卻感覺這不是自己想做的

  • and I came to realize that


  • I wanted to create something


  • and make people happy

    用自己端出來的料理 讓客人感到高興

  • That's what I wanted to do.


  • I start working at 8:00AM. I make fish broth everyday.

    我從早上8點開始工作 我每天都會煮魚高湯

  • And while I make the broth, I also prepare eggs.


  • Menya Musashi, No.1 Ramen restaurant in Japan at that time, came to my mind,

    那時候我想起了當時日本頂尖的拉麵店 麺屋武蔵

  • and I made a phone call


  • to ask them to take me as an apprentice.


  • I started at the Menya Musashi Shinjuku main shop,

    在麺屋武蔵的新宿本店 工作了4年半。

  • I worked there for 4 1/2 years.

    不停地累積經驗 直到現在

  • Kunimoto's restaurant has 4 main dishes.


  • Of course they all contain ramen noodles,


  • but they're actually not all the same thickness,


  • nor are they prepared the same way.


  • This is regular ramen.


  • Each restaurant will have their own take on the dish.


  • Kunimoto's version has a flavourful broth with fatty pork.

    國本拉麵店 則是充滿風味的高湯,搭配沾滿油脂的叉燒

  • This is Shio ramen, and shio stands for salt.


  • It has a light broth and lean pork.


  • The noodles used are thinner than the regular ramen's.


  • - Large Shio (salt) ramen, here you are. - Thank you very much for waiting.

    鹽味拉麵 久等了,請享用

  • This is Noukou (thick) ramen.


  • This one has a thick broth, and you can really taste the fish.

    這種拉麵都用濃湯 你幾乎可以嘗到魚的味道

  • It also comes with plenty of onions.


  • This last dish is Tsukemen.


  • The broth and noodles are separated in two different bowls.


  • Its flavour is most similar to the regular ramen, but it's broth is richer.

    高湯的味道跟一般拉麵很像 但是這種比較濃

  • The noodles are cooled down, and the water squeezed out.

    麵條會被冷卻 並擠掉多餘的水

  • While the noodles are served cold, the broth is hot.

    上菜的時候麵條是冷的 高湯卻是熱的

  • So you have a little break from 3:30pm to 5:00pm?


  • I... don't get a break.

    我... 不會休息

  • I constantly cook broth,


  • and do some other chores, cook soup, and cool it down.

    煮的同時 一邊進行其他瑣碎的作業

  • I don't really take a break, maybe 15 minutes if I can.

    通常都沒有休息 如果我可以的話或許15分鐘吧

  • At 9:00am, a part timer comes and works until 3:00pm.

    早上9點的時候 有個打工的會來,然後工作到下午3點

  • And from 3:00pm, I start preparing.


  • I have been looking for workers. I can't find anyone at all.


  • Right now, My parents help me. I feel awful to ask them to work for me.

    現在有我的父母幫我。 可是要他們幫我工作感覺很糟糕。

  • If you expect other people to work like you do,


  • It can be too much for them as they're not an owner.

    但是對他們來講負擔太大了 之前來打工的就是這樣

  • To train people as you would train yourself


  • is really tough...


  • Former co-workers at Menya Musashi,


  • They all have their own restaurants.

    現在都獨立了 開了自己的餐廳

  • Everyone works crazy hours.


  • It is worse than mine. Like some work from 5:00 AM.

    有一些人比我還辛苦 比方說從早上5點就開始工作

  • It's a tough job.


  • Since I work for myself, and I'm not someone's employee,

    畢竟自己就是老闆 並不是其他人的僱員

  • this is my only chance. I won't get another opportunity like this.

    如果經營不下去的話 就什麼都沒有了

  • When I first opened this restaurant with my little brother, I gave it my life.

    當初跟弟弟一起開這家餐廳的時候 真的是拚了老命

  • Make a living... yes I can.


  • What's the least favourite thing about owning a ramen restaurant?

    當了拉麵店的老闆 有什麼討厭的回憶嗎?

  • There's nothing I don't like.


  • -Good work. - Yes, good work.

    - 辛苦了。 - 是的,辛苦了。

  • One by one, as much as I can,

    一碗接著一碗 小心翼翼的

  • I put my very best in every bowl I make.


  • With ramen, out of 100 customers, not everyone will like your food.

    畢竟拉麵 不是100位客人來了,100位都會覺得好吃

  • How can I say this...


  • As much as I can, with everything I have,


  • I try to put my very best into each bowl of ramen.


  • Then if someone says it's delicious, that's the best feeling.

    如果客人說好吃 就很開心

  • When you think about being an owner, you think you're the boss of everyone,

    當你成為老闆 你會覺得自己是所有人的老闆

  • and sure, you are, kind of...

    當然你是 算是...

  • But what you may not know, is that the shop owns you.

    你不知道的是 這家店才是你的老闆

  • And instead of one boss, you have all your customers who you need to please.

    比起一位老闆 你要服務的是所有的客人

  • If you think you'll get away from having to do the dirty tasks,

    如果你以為當老闆 可以擺脫髒兮兮的工作

  • you may be sad to realize that you still may find yourself doing all of them.

    你可能會很失望 發現你還是要自己去做這些工作

  • From cleaning dishes, to washing walls, to scrubbing floors.


  • I asked him, if he had another owner-like employee,

    我問他 如果你可以找到像你一樣能幹的員工

  • would he be able to not work so much.


  • I can't believe his answer, which was


  • that he would have the mentee open up a second restaurant!

    他說:「會請他去開第二家店 這間讓他顧就好」

  • -It wasn't busy today so I finished early. - Oh!

    今天沒這麼忙 提早打烊

  • I normally finish at this time (11:30pm), but I didn't.


  • Kunimoto is the first person in and the last person out.

    國本店長是第一個踏進店面的人 也是最後一個走的人

  • So kids, this is what it's like to own a ramen restaurant.

    親愛的觀眾 開一家拉麵店就是這麼辛苦

  • Thank you!

    hey 你還在看?

  • - Thank you! - Thank you!


  • Oh hey! You're still watching?

    謝謝你 願意讓我拍這麼多天

  • If you're Kunimoto-san,


  • then thank you so much for letting me invade your restaurant for a couple days.


  • I would say keep up the hard work,


  • but you don't need me telling you that.


  • A special thanks to all those on Patreon


  • who supports these little documentaries of mine.
