How far would you go for the perfect ramen? Guided in her quest by scrappy truck drivers Gun and Gorō, Tampopo strives to create the best ramen around to serve from her roadside shop.

How far would you go for the perfect ramen? Guided in her quest by scrappy truck drivers Gun and Gorō, Tampopo strives to create the best ramen around to serve from her roadside shop. In the process she is run through a rigorous training process, encouraged to steal secrets of broth-making and challenges other ramen-makers in Spaghetti Western (noodle Western?) style stand-offs.

The main quest for culinary perfection is intersected with brilliant standalone stories about different types of gourmand. From the couple who bring the kitchen into the bedroom, to the salaryman with an uncanny knowledge of French cuisine, to a cautionary tale about squeezing fruit, these vignettes add rich flavours to the delicious broth of Tampopo.

Sweet, peppered with hilarious moments and 100% guaranteed to have you desperate for a bowl of noodles, Tampopo is a nourishing watch that ignites every sense and remains one of the most delectable examples of food on film.

Ramen Workshop

Before the film you will have the chance to find out more about how to make ramen with Dr Celia Plender who previously worked as a chef and food writer specialising in Japanese cuisine. You will learn how to make a vegetarian ramen broth and toppings before eating what you have assembled (vegan options also available).
