Hacks to Transform Your Ramen Into a Gourmet Meal
November 17, 2017

Ramen has a mysterious past. Some believe it has a Chinese origin while others claim it was invented in Japan during the early 20th century. Around 1900, Chinese restaurants served simple ramen noodles with a few toppings and a pork bone broth. Chinese-run food stalls selling ramen and gyoza dumplings popped up throughout Japan, catering to workers. They announced their presence using a musical horn called a charamera; the sound is still used today via a loudspeaker and looped audio. After World War II, cheap flour was imported into Japan from the US and Japanese troops brought back an appreciation for Chinese cuisine. These factors led to the rise of ramen’s popularity in Japan. In 1958, the founder of Nissin Food Momofuku Ando invented instant noodles. Named the greatest invention of the 20th century in a Japanese poll, ramen emerged as a cultural icon by the 1980s. Nowadays, instant noodles are a mainstay in both Western and Eastern diets. While they are celebrated as a frugal yet delicious option, there are plenty of ways to transform them into gourmet meals for any occasion! This infographic features 30 top ramen hacks and recipes to spice up your ramen!
