Yesterday, we decided to eat Japanese ramen. You know, the kind that you can buy packages for from the American grocery store. They are cheap, easy, and taste good. I was disappointed when we went to Korea, because they have their own form of ramen, but it is called rameyon, and it is full of chili spice. My stomach couldn’t take all the chili spice the Koreans dish out. My daughter insisted on buying a whole big package with several small packages in it of Japanese ramen when we were at the grocery store because she missed it too. It is basically chicken noodle soup. If you have never made it, I will show you how.
Our American bowls seem so small compared to oriental bowls. One package is supposed to be enough for one bowl of soup, but our bowls were so small that one package was enough for two bowls of soup. We each had two bowls of soup because I made two packages. We really enjoyed it!! The Koreans have ramyeon, but for us who are not into overloaded chili spice, ramen is what we want.
