Ramen noodles

What do you think of when you think of ramen noodles?  Or a cup of noodles?

Let me guess… a poor college student, young twenty-something, or perhaps Carrie in Sex and the City.

How about the Chinese?

Yes, that’s right… the Chinese eat ramen noodles, well those and noodles of all kinds, all the time.  They get the standard rectangleish packages to make at home.  They get them packaged in a bowl complete with a little fork for traveling.  (On a side note, these bowls of noodles are about the only thing that the Chinese use a fork for.  And some even pack chopsticks and discard the fork anyway.)  Anyway, they eat them all of the time.  Seriously.  There are ramen noodle restaurants, at least in Beijing.  It’s incredible.  And delicious.  Somehow the Chinese brands taste better than those in the US.  Or maybe that’s just my perception due to altered taste buds.  Regardless, ramen-like noodles are immensely popular.  Who would’ve thought?
