Our Story

Hiro and Nori met in 2011 in Los Angeles. In 2017, they founded HiroNori Craft Ramen to create an unmatched ramen taste and experience that expresses their passion, knowledge, and craft.

 

Hiro Igarashi

Hiro grew up in a family that loved ramen. At 18, he started working at his first ramen shop. After attending college, he visted LA and tried the ramen here. He was shocked at the poor quality and bad customer service. So he thought, “Some day I want to amaze people with really good authentic ramen served at a Japanese level quality of service”. With his partner Nori, he hopes to do that with their HiroNori Craft Ramen locations throughout Southern California.

Nori Akasaka

Growing up as a child, Nori was obsessed with ramen. All through high school, he worked at ramen restaurants. He then moved to Tokyo, and worked at a ramen restaurant where lots of bones were used for their soup base — over 1K lbs per day! (This method serves as a base for HiroNori’s current recipe.) In 2011, Nori moved to LA and was surprised by the low quality of ramen. So in 2017, he started HiroNori Craft Ramen with Hiro to offer better customer service and ramen for all.


Our Mission

Hiro and Nori have not forgotten the reason why they came to the U.S.: to serve authentic ramen with excellent service, and bring joy to their customers. They hope that this can lead to a more peaceful world; good relationships between employees will lead to a more positive atmosphere, a happier atmosphere will lead to happier customers, and happy people will have a positive impact on the community. In this light, HiroNori believes that the world can become a better place — one bowl of ramen at a time.
