Ramen Noodles in Soup

Ramen Soup is undoubtedly a famous soup dish which contains instant ramen noodles in a clear and flavorful broth. You will find this soup topping the menu of most Japanese Eateries. This comforting one bowl meal is perfect for those lazy winter days when you will just want a blanket to get cozy with a cup of warm soup in hand and nothing else – dinner is served on the couch. Every time I make this soup, the star ingredient of this soup - Ramen Noodles, bring back a lot of old memories of my office days (especially in winters). During lunch-hour we used to rush to a road side eatery, operated by an Asian family. Their Chef, an Asian boy in his early twenties use to prepare more than 10 dishes with just Ramen Noodles as main ingredient (I always wondered where did he learn all this?) and I enjoyed almost all of them – each one a little different from other. However, my favorites were - Ramen Soup, Ramen Vegetable Stir Fry and Spicy Ramen Chicken. No one can match that taste. But, whenever I crave for those dishes, I try to add my own spin and eat’em remembering old days.So next time...
