What is gaku?
The character “学“ can be generally translated as “learning” or “education” or “study” and is often read as “Gaku.” The genesis of the brand is our vision to bring delicious, real ramen to towns with a vibrant college community. The name tries to capture that inspiration.
Authentic Japanese Ramen
Gaku Ramen serves authentic Japanese ramen, the ultimate comfort food. We use only the freshest ingredients to create our traditional ramen specialties, rice bowls, and other delicious items. We are singularly focused on the authenticity of what is in the bowl and on the plate.
This is where our story begins. In June of 2016, we opened our first ramen shop in the popular Church Street Marketplace in Burlington, Vermont. We were an instant hit with the students and neighbors and just kept doing what we do. Making authentic Japanese Ramen with fresh ingredients at an affordable price.

Arthur opened Gaku Ramen’s first location in Vermont in 2016 as the sous chef.“
“Founded by three friends united in their love for ramen, this restaurant near the University of Vermont campus is the go-to spot for the best ramen in the Green Mountain State. Order the Tonkotsu Ramen for a healthy dose of pork broth, chashu (pork belly), bamboo shoots, mushrooms, and scallions..”
“Gaku Ramen is a newcomer to Church Street, and it’s sure to become a staple for University of Vermont students because of their excellent food and location. They use locally grown ingredients whenever possible, and if it’s not local, it’s still sustainably sourced!“
