Lawson to Sell Fried Ramen Made from Local Wheat

This July, Lawson has begun selling packages of fried ramen made from Ra-Mugi, a strain of wheat developed by Fukuoka Prefecture solely for ramen noodles. The recipe was supervised by Kokin-chan, the popular Tenjin yatai that is said to be the origin of fried ramen. The noodles comes in two types: the ¥399 chilled version (which can be heated up in a microwave) and the ¥246 instant version (which can be made by adding hot water). Ra-Mugi was developed to create noodles that stay firm and don’t get soggy. Source: Nishinippon Shimbun 6/22
