This is dish that originated directly from Nagoya.
Misen, a Chinese Taiwanese restaurant in Nagoya City founded this dish.
The owner, who is originally from Taiwan, started serving a noodle dish called the "Danzai noodle", which was originally from Taiwan.
He then proceeded to creating a spicier version and named it, the "Taiwan Ramen”. In the beginning, only a handful of customers were enjoying the “Taiwan Ramen”.
In the late 1980s, hot and spicy food started to gain popularity and suddenly, this inspired a period of time known as the ‘hot and spicy boom’.
Now, the “Taiwan Ramen” can be found commonly all over Nagoya and is served at various ramen shops.
Interestingly, in Taiwan, it is called, the "Nagoya Ramen" in reverse.
