pretty quick and easy, you just add hot water and viola! the ramen (thin, wheat-based noodles with soda water, originated in china in the 10th century) and from then it became so popular in japan that every town and every province has it's style of this noodle delight! Instant noodles originated in japan ok! these instant japanese ramen have prepacked ingredients that you just need to add these ingredients in a bowl and just ask hot water at the konbinis and wait for 3 minutes and viola! a styrofoam bowl of instant ramen soup with different flavors costs just 250 yen at konbinis and supermarkets so for those budget busters, this is a perfect cheap breakfast or lunch meal!
