The founder, this Ando guy, is an amazing guy. He was born in Taiwan, but moved to Japan when he was in his 20s to go to college and start a business. He became a citizen of Japan, even though they required him to give up his family name of Wu and adopt a Japanese family name (any Japanese family name would have done--he picked Ando). He did some honor to his ancestors.

And, for sure, he made a great cup of instant Chinese noodles (ramen is the Japanese pronunciation for Chinese style noodles).

What's the big deal? We have the National Mustard Museum here in Wisconsin.

Ahhh, Ramen!!! Love it as a snack. It wasn't around when I was a poverty stricken college student, so there's no bad connotations in it.

I think I'll get high blood pressure just walking into that museum.

I don't think they're very healthy. The noodles are deep-fried, and the powder you pour on it is all MSG.

A little MSG never hurt anyone. Just don't consume pounds of it every day.

Here's a very informative article about MSG. Did you know that Marmite's "yeast extract" is glutamate? Marmite has a higher concentration of glutamate than any other manufactured food, and people think it's healthy!

I don't eat ramen noodles because i'am poor, i eat them because i like them. I had my first at Osan AB Korea in 1976 and have been eating them ever since.

Mmmmmm ramen noodles and kimchi... :-)
I love them too. :-)
I "amplify" mine with some chopped onions, crushed garlic, chopped tomato and whatever leftover veggies I have in the fridge. I often throw in leftover chicken or an egg or two.
Makes a great meal, good for a cold day.

Not all ramen noodles are the same. Spend a little more and get great noodles. The 10 cent a pack stuff in the grocery store is just barely passable as noodles.

True that, the cheap ones aren't all that great, and sometimes they're stale; it helps if you doctor the cheap one up with cheese and a can of tuna or an egg or whatever, but the Asian ones that are a little more expensive are good. To keep the sodium down use just a little of the flavor of the packet, you don't need an entire packetful.

Maruchan brand are pretty good. Top Ramen has taken a nose-dive in quality over the years. The imported Korean brands like Nong Shin are pretty good. Nothing opens up stuffed sinuses like some blazing-hot shin ramen or kimchi ramen.

Great, love real Ramen Noodles...wish a Cup Noodle Museum, would open in the states!
