Do You Know The History Of Ramen Noodles?

Instant ramen noodles saw their invention in 1958. While they were invented in Japan, they were actually given a name that is Chinese in origin. The name is loosely defined as noodles that are in soup broth.

Consumption of ramen noodles is very popular worldwide, given the combination of rich flavors and easy preparation. However, as these were introduced to many different cultures, they each added their own influences and ingredients, so using ramen noodles as a base is something subject to constant creativity.

It did not take long for someone to think of the idea of providing ramen noodles in a cup, for the convenience of the consumer. This made ramen noodles something portable, and people started enjoying them at work, in school, or even while traveling.

While the world has obviously taken a liking to ramen noodles, there was also demand for more flavors and better recipes. To that end, Japan alone has nearly forty thousand restaurants focusing on ramen noodles, many with their own distinct recipes and flavors.

Ramen noodles spread from Japan in three primary waves. The first was in the 1960s when it arrived on the shores of the Korean peninsula and China, followed by Southeast Asia, and then Australia and New Zealand. In the Seventies, it reached Latin America, the United States, and Western Europe. Ramen noodles did not enter the Russian and Eastern European markets until the 1990s.

Ramen noodles these days are often thought of as an integral part of the college student subculture of the United States. Part of the appeal is how cheap many ramen noodle packages are, often available in bulk deals at low price points. The ability to store them in a dorm room without refrigeration is a plus, as only hot water is needed to prepare them.


The Nutrition Levels Of Japanese Ramen

A lot of people think that Japanese Ramen is full of sodium. This is definitely true if you buy the kind of Ramen noodles that are sold on the shelf at the grocery store. However, it isn’t the case if you eat real Japanese Ramen.

Ramen is a staple of the Japanese diet, and that’s for a good reason. Ramen can be absolutely delicious, and it can be packed full of nutrition as well.

Kind Words

  • My first ramen outside of Manhattan and it did not disappoint! I’ve been to the famous Totto Ramen a lot in Hell’s Kitchen but I actually think this is nicer! Went here with my brother and we both left very impressed!

  • Consistently delicious. The croquette appetizer is my favorite followed by the ramen. The miso is too creamy and flavorful for my own taste. Only $2 for extra noodles! This is a great local spot. Their location is convenient and they’re always busy.

  • There are 3 things I look for in an awesome ramen shop.

    1) broth – must be flavorful and not too oily. can’t have hella fat chunks
    2) noodles – thicker and more el dente in texture. I like having chewy noodles
    3) eggs – must be soft boiled and running eggs.

    So my ramen covered 1 & 3 but I forgot to ask for the thick noodles, which is my fault not the ramen shop’s. They had it too. boo.

  • I’ve been here for about three times now and Tamashi Ramen definitely hits the spot. Now only if they can deliver. Each time we go there the usual is the tako wasabi. My husband and I we both love the Kara spicy miso Ramen. The noodles are nice thick and wavy al dente. Very delicious to the bite! The chasu pork is yummy, filling and very substantial. I love the tiny piece of pork and corn that included with the soft boiled egg. If only I could fit more in my tummy I would definitely wanna try other items outside of Ramen.
