All About Ramen, Food Tips -


After world war II, food shortage continued to plague Japan for years. Momofuku Ando, the creator of Instant Ramen, went back to his hometown Osaka and saw the damage brought by the war. The bombings had destroyed the factory and two office buildings he owned. Seeing the horrible wrecked place made him think of ideas to help his fellow men. He saw people lined up outside a ramen stall waiting for something to eat. That's the time he realized how ramen turned out to be comfort food. One time while his wife was preparing dinner, he put some noodles into the oil and discovered that noodles dehydrate when fried and made it quicker to cook. That's the time Instant Ramen noodles were born. It has helped millions of people survive hunger. It is very convenient since it has a shorter cooking time. It is then loved by people around the world. Nowadays we often think of Ramen as restaurant food, but actually, we can enjoy it better at home. One of our favorite guilty pleasures is ramen bowl.
