Ramen and its origin

Ramen is the Japanese version of the Chinese noodle soup dish, or specifically, the Chinese dish called 'La-Mian', literally translated to 'pulled noodles'. The process of making hand-"pulled noodles" is actually an art involving holding the stretched out dough in both hands and whirling it around several times. The paste is then laid out on a board and folded and refolded repeatedly until it is eventually transformed into long, thin, noodles.

Noodles originated from China over 5000 years ago and the art of noodle-making reached Japan

 
 

along with other elements of the Chinese culture much much later on. Originally called 'lamen' in Japan, the dish is later referred to as 'ramen ' as there are no distinctions between the 'L' and 'R' sound in the Japanese language. Today, practically the entire Asia region eats ramen or 'la-mian' and after the invention of packaged ramen by the Japanese, ramen-eating became even more popular due to the ease in cooking the noodles, not only in Asia, but also in many Western countries like America.

Ramen Flavours

Generally, ramen in Asia is very spicy and seasoned with vegetables, seaweed, boiled eggs, and other assorted ingrediants to create a relatively more exotic flavour. Ramen in America, however, is mostly chicken flavored and tastes much milder. Moreover, American ramen usually has a high amount of MSG (monosodium glutamate) to make up for the lack of authentic Asian ramen taste. Ramen could well be the most popular food choice among college students because it is cost effective and easy to prepare.

You can try to make your own ramen from our recipes or if you can't wait, just buy them online.
