Champon is a Japanese noodle dish with origins from China and was invented by the owner of a Chinese restaurant, Shikairo in Nagasaki. Champon is made by frying pork, seafood and vegetables and adding to a soup made with chicken and pig bones. A ramen noodle made especially for champon is then added. Unlike other noodle dishes only one pan is needed as the noodle is boiled in the soup. Depending on the season and the situation, ingredients differ. Hence the taste and style may depend on the location and time of year.
