It is a very dark and late night. Mr. S, who cooks for himself, is very hungry. At that moment what kind of food comes to his mind? It is none other than ¡®Ramyun¡¯. Simmering it in a pot, adding some chopped leek and finally breaking an egg into it, it can make a superb meal. It is a food which is very easy to cook and is very familiar to everyone in Korea, regardless of sex or age.
In particular, it is a wonderful meal for students who cook for themselves and for student boarders. The days when ramyun was eaten only Kimchi are over.
