3 Homemade Ramen Recipes

Today we would like to offer you three quick ramen recipes for making at home. Despite what many people think, ramen is noodles with broth, and not at all soup. The dish came from China to Japan when the country reopened its borders during the Meiji Restoration. Over the past century, the dish has been improved to such an extent that it has almost overshadowed its original Chinese counterparts on the world stage. What was once a simple peasants’ dinner has turned into the culinary embodiment of the Japanese striving for perfection.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
