Ramen (ラーメン, rāmen?, IPA: [ɽaːmeɴ]) is a Japanese noodle dish. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat- or (occasionally) fish-based broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork (チャーシュー, chāshū?), dried seaweed (海苔, nori?), kamaboko, green onions, and occasionally corn. (Thank you Wikipedia)
But in my case, growing up in Tacloban, I have always thought instant noodles qualify as ramen. Epic fail. My food education got better when I moved to Cebu 15 years ago, now, at least now I know how to differentiate the taste between expensive ramen and the kind that comes from a plastic packet. Anyway, yesterday we were looking forward to a burrito filled lunch but the restaurant is apparently open only for the dinner crowd so off we went to the nearest place: 168 Ramen House.
