In the 80s, when South Korea was just trying to get back on its feet and no one knew of Samsung and LG, many people were literally living on ramen or instant noodles.
I remember when I used to live in Korea, each apartment building had a security guard. The security guard would cook ramen for lunch and sometimes he’d let some of kids join in.
Especially in the winter when it snows in Korea, ramen is so good.
Of course, consuming ramen on a daily basis isn’t too great for anyone but it’s definitely good once a week.
My favorite Korean ramen? It’s called Shin Ramen, the one with red all over as shown in above pics.
Shin Ramen also leads South Korea in popularity, ranked #1 ramen for decades and has about 25% of all ramen market in South Korea.
I’ve also seen Shin Ramen being available here in San Francisco bay area at Safeway, Lucky’s, and even 7-Eleven.
Why am I writing about Shin Ramen? I just had some.
Also, you can mix some rice after you finish the noodles, that’s really good too.
There’s 3 different types of Shin Ramen, one in a package, one in a big bowl, and one in a small bowl.
They all taste pretty darn good, I highly suggest you to try it some day.
