The chef was featured on a prime-time variety programme and Musashi-menya ramen near my humble abode became an overnight star.
A bowl of ramen, is much more than a meal. Every mouthful every slurp every sound tells a story.
Of a hard day’s work. Of defeated spirits. Of weary souls.
Salarymen in their suits. Bored housewives. Zesty tourists. Boisterous teens.
And one silly student in her silly pigtails who was thinking about her mum as she stared at the bowl of pipin’ hot ramen.
Mum would love it..
