Momofuku Ando, R.I.P.
We have just learned of Momofuku Ando's passing (thanks for the heads up, Martin). The inventor of instant ramen died on January 5 at the age of 96 after suffering a fatal heart attack. Fittingly, his last meal was chicken ramen, the product that started it all.
The Park Slope Gastronome is grateful to have been able to visit
The Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum in Ikeda City while vacationing in Japan last summer.
