About Fou Fow

2011, Fou Fow popped up in China town. On the second floor of Asian super store Toko Dun Yong, Pork and Chicken broths were cooked daily. Here it all started, the first ramen shop in Amsterdam was born. And did it work? Well, the first customers were a bit puzzled, ‘what is this?! something odd or was it kind of good?’ Two reasons for that, they needed time to get acquainted to this new pasta soup dish, and Fou Fow needed time to study more the art of ramen. But not that much time, in pursuit of making the best ramen, this hidden gem became soon an overcrowded place to hang out for lunch. In 2014 Fou Fow ramen opened its first own shop, and now there are two.

Fow es tu fou?

Why is it called Fou Fow, it seems hard to pronounce. Well the founders first name is Fow Pyng, and you pronounce it as Fu Ping, so why spell it that way? let’s assume his dad believed in the freedom of spelling. So Fou Fow is pronounced as Fu Fu, which in French means crazy Fow, a childhoods nickname. In Japanese Fu Fu is the ‘blowing sound’ we make to cool the hot noodles. So ‘Fu Fu’ well before you burn your mouth! And in Chinese the Fu Fu characters are read as ‘fortune returns’.

Magic of ramen

His mother fed him home made hand pulled noodles. Sounds romantic, but for them it was simple daily food. Sometimes brilliant, but mostly very decent and satisfying. The secret is maybe this simple daily comfort which makes ramen magical. The right texture, ingredients, smell and taste combined in a bowl makes you want to eat it again and again. Fou Fow produces its noodle in Japan and ships it to Amsterdam so you can enjoy them daily, this is a basic human right.
