If you have ever seen the popular anime Naruto Shipp?den, you would have seen Naruto eating a bowl of noodles called ramen, which usually comes topped with cutlets or boiled eggs, in between missions without fail. He slurps while eating ramen, showing how the best way to eat ramen is just when they are still hot.
There is a reason behind slurping as well, ramen experts say that if you eat your ramen daintily, the process can take a long time and the noodles will get all mushy.
Ramen, or ramyeon in Korean, is an extremely popular dish in the world thanks not just to an anime but also the instant ramen cups or packets available everywhere, including Qatar.
Originally from China, ramen was brought to Japan over 100 years ago. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles in a flavoured broth with the addition of various toppings.
Japanese ramen comes in different varieties that is decided by the flavour of the soup. These include shio (salt-based ramen), shoyu (soy sauce-based ramen), miso (soybean paste-flavoured ramen).
Meanwhile, Korean ramyeon is different not only because the noodles are typically fried but they also make soup using instant powder, which means there are literally over hundreds of flavours.
Ramen’s popularity is due in part to the fact that it is simple to make and quick to eat. It is also inexpensive, making it an ideal lunch, dinner or after-a-night-on-the-town snack for budget-conscious people.
