Additional Information:

Among the different ramens - Miso ramen, Tonkontsu ramen, etc., Our Little FECS likes the Shoyu ramen best. It is also one of the easiest ramens to make. Shoyu basically mean soy sauce based soup. I tried this today and Little FECS ate it after coming back from school. He gave a thumbs up,  and said that it is the tastiest one so far, after trying many different ones :-) Daddy FECS too likes this soup base best.
