Soup is the most comforting dish ever in this period. You go out in the afternoon with this sharp wind on the face, scarf, hat and thick jacket, but still you are so cold you can’t wait to be home and have a warm, cozy soup. So, well, here we go: a quick and easy ramen soup for the coldest days ahead.
I have never been to Japan, to be fair. The best ramen I had was in Berlin. Yeah, that’s quite funny indeed. Nevertheless, Berlin is just a black hole of different cultures, and you can literally find anything there. From the best falafel to the best Asian restaurant. That was the very last travel we did before COVID. I still remember it like it was yesterday. We had so much fun indeed, and we would have never expect everything to change so much in just a couple of days.. and that a couple of years after everything would just be so different everywhere.
So well, just try this comfy ramen out and travel with your mind. Japan, Berlin, the destination doesn’t really matter much. Get comfy, cook, and pretend being somewhere else. It does work sometimes.

I do have a scientific mind, probably it’s the reason why I love to hide in the kitchen and start creating.
