Chef Alan MacIntosh takes great pride in his creations

Partners and Co-Chefs Paponake MacIntosh and Alan MacIntosh met in 2015 at an authentic Thai dinner hosted by Alan MacIntosh and held at a local restaurant that Paponake was working at. The couple took their passion for Authentic Asian Cuisine to the next level when they partnered with fellow Restaurateur Mayra Ramirez to open Dragon Ramen.

Dragon Ramen was the first Authentic Asian Noodlery in Massachusetts and is built around the farm to table movement. The menu focuses on Authentic noodle dishes from Japan, Thailand and Vietnam. Alan, believes in a sustainable model, sourcing as much as possible from local purveyors and farms, updating the menu seasonally, and only offering the freshest possible ingredients. You wont find big freezers or microwaves at Dragon Ramen. 

Chef Paponake was originally from Thailand, and has spent most of his life working in restaurants. Paponake spent years touring Japan, China, Vietnam before settling in the United States. Chef Paponake takes recipes that he learned as a young man when cooking with his mother over charcoal fires. At that time, he would prepare everything from scratch while adding his own unique twist to honor the Thai cooking traditions.

Right before the restaurant’s one year anniversary, Alan & Paponake bought-out Mayra’s share of the business, renaming it from its original “Noodle City” to “Dragon Ramen.” The rest is history as today Doragon Ramen is the best authentic ramen in Metrowest having won the 2021 “Best of Metrowest” competition held by the Metrowest Chamber of Comerce:
