Link: Mr. Noodle - New York Times.
A wonderful appreciation for the creator of, perhaps, the greatest Japanese invention ever!
"Ramen noodles, by contrast, are a dish of effortless purity. Like the egg, or tea, they attain a state of grace through a marriage with nothing but hot water. After three minutes in a yellow bath, the noodles soften. The pebbly peas and carrot chips turn practically lifelike. A near-weightless assemblage of plastic and foam is transformed into something any college student will recognize as food, for as little as 20 cents a serving." - Lawrence Downes, NYT
