There's nothing better than a bowl of hot soup...especially if there are noodles involved. These ramen tattoos capture one of our favorite foodie items. No matter where you're from, chicken noodle soup seems to be the catch all for every malady: from hangovers to the blues and even the flu. Obviously, the people wearing these pieces know all the goodness about this particular cultural cuisine. We love it all: Shio, Shoyu, Miso, and Tonkotsu broth are all liquids we could literally swim around in we love it sooooo much!
Although there are many different restaurants who can provide you with the lovely noodle soup you crave, but you can thank Momofuku Ando for those cup 'o' noods that we all know and love. Ando was "a Japanese inventor and businessman who founded Nissin Food Products Co., Ltd.. He is known as the inventor of instant noodles and the creator of the brands, Top Ramen and Cup Noodles."
Believe it or not, instant ramen wasn't invented for broke college students. In the post-war era of Japan, the food shortage was very serious. "the Ministry of Health tried to encourage people to eat bread made from wheat flour that was supplied by the United States. Ando wondered why bread was recommended instead of noodles, which were more familiar to the Japanese. The Ministry's response was that noodle companies were too small and unstable to satisfy supply needs, so Ando decided to develop the production of noodles by himself. The experience convinced him that 'Peace will come to the world when the people have enough to eat.'" Such sweet thoughts that would end up inspiring so many ramen tattoos!!
Ramen is actually a regional food, meaning that there are tons of different types to try all over Japan. You can even learn about them at the Shin-Yokohama Ramen Museum! Founded in 1994, Shin-Yokohama is an experiential space where you can easily visit awesome shops from all over the country in one place! "From the start, our concept has been to be the one-stop place to enjoy the flavors of this national dish from renowned shops across Japan without stepping on a plane. To commemorate our 20th anniversary, we've expanded on the Japan-wide concept to being one that covers areas worldwide, delivering even more of the attraction and fascination of ramen to one and all. Our nine ramen shops are showcased in a street-scape replication from the year 1958, Japan. It was in this year that the world's first instant ramen was invented." Their website has so many pictures that will make you wanna jump on a plane and plan a visit!
