Among the many kinds of noodles that make up Japanese cuisine, ramen stand out. Around since the beginning of the 20th century, perhaps as an import from China, they became an almost instant favorite thanks to their variety (no two bowls of ramen are the same), how filling they are (soup, noodles and toppings make for a full meal), low price, availability (they are everywhere), and low price. So what better way to celebrate your love of the staple than with a permanent display of a bowl of ramen in your living room? That's where the Ramen Alley Noodles Candle comes in.
Apart from the fact that it is a miniature, the Ramen Alley Candle is a fully accurate reproduction of a ramen soup bowl complete with chopsticks, noodles, corn, Welsh onion, a shrimp and a naruto kamaboko, a round slice of steamed fish paste with a distinct pink whirlpool design used both for taste and to add color in ramen. And yes, you can light it (no ramen smell!) but you may be tempted to just keep it as a constant reminder of your last visit to a ramen alley noodles joint.
