In memoriam - the noodle king

The king is dead - long live the noodle!

The man who invented instant noodles died just before the weekend.

Fair enough, he was 96 and made billions out of his 1958 invention. But I'll still miss him. His genius fed me for many impoverished student years.

Momofuko Ando, RIP.

I'm raising a cup of beef ramen to you now.

I never realised the instant noodle was INVENTED! I thought they just WERE...like baked beans and sliced bread!
