Ramen holds a special place in our hearts. Noodles and topping on their own become too dry, liquid broth nothing but a savoury hot drink. However when combined to make Ramen, the result is truly a thing of beauty. Salt, Protein, Umami, Carbs, Greens- Ramen has all you want (apart from Ice Cream) for a soul-nourishing meal. Ramen has truly taken over the world, with new Ramen restaurants  dried noodle packs filling the shelves of every world food aisle and becoming the essential item in any student’s pantry. Pho isn’t too far behind as it has been the driving force behind thrusting Vietnamese cuisine into the cultural limelight.
