About Gabriel Rosen

Raised in Des Moines, Iowa, Chef Gabriel Rosen owns and operates popular izakaya, Biwa and sister ramen and juice restaurant, Noraneko in Portland, Oregon. Chef Gabriel opened Biwa with business partner and wife, Kina Voelz in 2007, hoping to fill a void with the restaurant’s simple but delicious Japanese fare. Biwa’s great success inspired an influx of Japanese ramen shops in Portland. In 2015, Chef Gabriel opened his own ramen restaurant, Noraneko where he serves infinitely customizable ramen and house made kombucha and juices.

Chef Gabriel began working in the restaurant business in 1995 while studying at University of Iowa. Chef Gabriel graduated from the Western Culinary Institute in Portland in 1998. He then rotated through several well known Portland kitchens including stints at L’Auberge, Saucebox, Fratelli Ristorante & Bar. He also worked as a butcher at craft butcher shop, Viande Meats.
