Ramen is a very popular noodle soup in Japan. Ramen noodles are originally Chinese style noodles, but they have changed and evolved to become a favorite Japanese food over many years. There are millions of Ramen restaurants in Japan, from old neighborhood Chinese restaurants, to Ramen street carts open late at night, to slick and modern Ramen specialty shops in cities. Those Ramen cooks all work so hard researching and testing to develop their very own original flavors for the noodles and soups of Ramen. Because there are a lot of Ramen restaurants out there, the competition among them to be popular or even to survive is brutal. But once they win the battle, customers won’t mind waiting for hours for their Ramen.
