Korean culture is taking the world by storm and the one thing we have learned from our dearest k-dramas is that ‘Ramyun’, also sometimes referred to as Ramen in other parts of the world, is a special delicacy that is enjoyed by everyone in South Korea. Many of us still believe that Ramyun originated in Korea but sadly that’s not the truth even if it seems so in Korean shows. Our beloved Ramen first grew popular in Japan in the 1800's which was inspired by Chinese wheat noodles and this food item was not introduced in Korea until after the Korean War. Although, true food connoisseurs would argue that the Korean Ramyun and Japanese Ramyun are slightly different from each other. Traditional Japanese noodles can either be made out of freshly made or instant noodles in a meat broth. Korean ramyun on the other hand are always instant noodles which are often accompanied with side dishes like kimchi or egg. So, if you are craving for Korean-style Ramyun while watching your favorite k-drama, this spicy egg ramen recipe is just perfect for you.
