    So how did ramen make it into London restaurants?

    The noodle culture was revolutionised in 1958 when Momofuku Ando invented the instant version. Just add water and you've got yourself a meal. This was named the greatest Japanese invention of the 20th century, allowing anyone to create their own noodle dish with just a kettle. From the 1980's this noodle culture spread across the world and the first noodle-based Japanese eateries began to be seen in the United States followed by Europe and the UK. Today, they are a familiar sight in London with more and more opening every year.

    How to eat ramen in London restaurants

    As eating noodles moved from a university cuisine staple to fully fledged restaurant experience, London ramen restaurants began appearing in just about every district. But what is the etiquette of eating these slippery noodles? The trick is to use chopsticks and lift a few strands clear of the broth, then dip them back into the soup to soak up some flavour before slurping them noisily into your mouth. In between a mouthful of noodles, eat some meat or fish, then pick up the bowl to drink the broth. Don't worry though, you'll soon get the hang of it and pick up your own style.
