Shop Manager Introduction
Enchanted by Lanzhou lamian
Trained on-site at the “Mazulu” main shop in Lanzhou, China.
The manager of the shop in Japan went to university in Beijing, and he got hooked on the Lanzhou lamian he ate there. After returning home, he resolved to develop Lanzhou lamian because there were no shops in Japan for when he wanted to eat it. At first, he went through a repeated process of trial and error, but he wasn’t able to master the complicated combination of medicinal spices and the skill of hand-making noodles. So, he decided to go to Lanzhou, the home of Lanzhou lamian, to find a shop where he could train.
He visited dozens of Lanzhou lamian shops in the area, and the most delicious was “Mazulu.” He requested to be allowed to train at the shop, but at first, he was ignored. However, he did not give up, and after visiting several more times, he was able to convey his seriousness and passion, and at long last, he was allowed to train. He received a thorough education on how to create noodles, soup and Chinese chili oil, and ultimately, he was able to open a shop in Japan.
