Most of us know ramen in their convenient, quick, and tasty instant form. But the ramen culture has been intensifying since the 1950s. In Japan, they even have a term: “ramen otaku” for those who dedicate time, document, and blog about their ramen experiences.
Ramen is loved across the world and it could be because of its satisfying slurp and the only way to eat them, or the combination of flavours and wide-range of ramen preparation.
