Over here at BlankSlate, we know that ramen is so much more than the instant cups that have come to epitomize this traditional Japanese dish. Our founder, Keiko Tanaka, grew up eating this soul food in Japan, and knows all the tricks of making the best ramen. We have set out on a mission to transform traditional ramen into a vegan, healthy, and crazy delicious option for curious omnivores.
This project was named after a Japanese word for hope - kibou. We have hope that our delicious, plant-based soups will make an impact to the food ecosystem. We have hope that ramen can be returned to its glory, but without highly-processed ingredients and artificial substances. We have hope that ramen can help our community explore the vegan lifestyle in a delicious, accessible way.
BlankSlate is currently crafting our menu and seeking financing options to get the ball rolling on our project of hope.
