Well we're Ramen, we're Ramen...

Hope ya like Ramen too. Ramen (ラーメン, 拉麺) is a Japanese dish of noodles and broth originating in China.


Ramen has a variety of toppings such as sliced pork, seaweed, kamaboko, green onions and even corn. Almost every locality or prefecture, in Japan has its own variation of ramen, from the tonkotsu ramen of Kyushu to the miso ramen of Hokkaido. Most ramen noodles are made from four basic ingredients: wheat flour, salt, water and kansui (かんすい). Making noodles with kansui lends them a yellowish hue as well as a particular flavor.

You can get instant Ramen, Ramen soup, Ramen with an egg on top, Ramen with numerous other ingredients and you can get it pretty much any time of the day or night. Frequently my mates and I will go out for ramen in the wee hours after a night of drinking.

The following clip (6 min...be patient) shows the length some people will go for a bowl of ramen. Rube Goldberg, eat your heart out (but save room for some ramen.) Warning: annoying announcer alert.
