Chicken Ramen

I remember that when I was an apprentice, my boss always cooked Ramen at home, and I was often invited. I was wondering why he makes ramen so often although we worked in a French style restaurant.

It's been more than 10 years since then. He owns 3 ramen shops now. And I understand why he went into it. It's just so much fun!!

When you eat the end product, you will be so impressed!! It's a big job. But well with it!
