In the middle of the postwar era, Momofuku Ando helped Japan change the way it ate by inventing an instant chicken and noodle soup prepared with the simple addition of a little hot water.
Ando discovered a market for a soup with noodles that was strongly flavored, inexpensive, and very simple to prepare.
Obsessed with the idea, he tested different formulas – with a used noodle maker and a giant wok pan – and lost many a sleepless night until, in 1958, he succeeded in creating a new food that became popular and was incorporated into his country’s culinary everyday life.
The noodle soup became popularly known in Japan as “magic lamen.” Half a century later, his invention is still being sold around the world.
