A Japanese restaurant chain is removing the stigma of solo dining. Ichiran Ramen has customized its chain of restaurants for solo diners.

At Ichiran Ramen is a Japanese Restaurant with 60 restaurants in Japan and Hong Kong and a branch in Bushwick, New York. The place has a dining room where introverted patrons do not even need to make eye contact in the duration of the course of their meal. Orders are put on a paper card and the food is brought through a hatch to a private booth.

The exclusive restaurant experience inspires diners to concentrate on the flavors of their food and gives privacy to self-conscious eaters who do not like to be seen gobbling on their meals. As visitors gets into Ichiran Ramen they are required to purchase a ticket and reserve a seat at a private wooden eating booth, with every booth parted by panels. Oddity Central reported that Manabu Yoshitomi pioneered this concept when he noticed while studying that many female students did not like to eat ramen in front of people.

Ichiran Ramen offers a peaceful and private environment for Japanese food lovers to feast. The restaurant's only main course is a bowl of tonkatsu ramen noodles. The customer, however, can choose for their preferred toppings, stock, spiciness, and noodle texture by selecting it from the menu. After that, they can press a button to indicate that they are ready to place an order. In addition, the menu card has drinks and side orders itemized.

The entire dining experience at Ichiran Ramen is almost free of interaction, apart from for the moment that a pair of hands emerges from a shutter in front of customers to get the card and then soon to put a bowl of food. While the eateries were designed for solo dining and most patrons appreciate a hearty, a silent feast without even looking at their neighbors, if you want to dine privately with a companion, the dividers can be always be removed, says Daily Mail.
