Today’s Google doodle commemorates the birthday of Momofuku Ando, the noted inventor of instant ramen.
Any college student or foodie on a budget can attest to the significance of ramen. Without a shortcut method of preparing Japan’s ultimate comfort food, life would surely never be the same.

What better way to celebrate Ando’s birthday than by going to a restaurant named after him? No matter how desperate your craving is, Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York can certainly do it justice.
