Invented in a shed: instant noodles

In 1958, Momofuku Ando invented the instant noodle (calling it 'Chicken Raman') following intensive research in the shed in his back garden of his home in Ikeda, Japan. You can see a recreation of the shed at the Nissen Instant Ramen Museum where you should click on the number '2' for a better view. Alternatively, download the brochure in English (if your Japanese is as rotten as mine) here.
Thanks to Scott Clark for the alert
