インタビュー「私の転機」に載りました。
この春サンディエゴに店をオープンした麺やうるとら。代表の遠藤さんは日本のラーメン界に伝説を作った人として知られています。これまでの経緯とこれからの展望を伺いました。
幼い頃から食べることが好きで、調理に興味がありました。おふくろがご飯を作る時にはいつもくっついていたし、小学生の時には天ぷらのネタの温度とか、衣の切り方、揚がったタイミングの音なんかを研究したりして。高校を出たら調理師学校に行きたかったのですが、おふくろが「うちはお金がないから働け」と。それで公務員になりました。でも、1年で体を壊してしまい、一度秋田の実家に戻ることに。しばらくアルバイトで食いつないで、その後、静岡でエンジンの組み立ての仕事を2年くらいしました。結構なお金が貯まったところでまた秋田に帰ったのですが、その時ちょうど、昔アルバイトをしていたチェーンの弁当屋が売りに出されていたんです。それを買ったのが飲食業に足を踏み入れた最初。21歳の時でした。

New Arrival Menya Ultra Might Be San Diego’s Best Ramen
Ramen master Takashi Endo has arrived in town from Japan bearing his award-winning ramen, which just might be San Diego’s best yet. The chef, who opened his first ramen shop in 1994 in Akita, a prefecture in Japan’s Tohoku region, now operates nine ramen eateries in Japan and two in Taiwan, all with varying menus. His 12th shop, which just debuted in Kearny Mesa, is Endo’s first outside Asia.
