Japanese Ramen Philanthropist Says "Fill 'Em Up!"

Idle 2

timothy writes "Matt Fischer's ramen page is never something to ignore (especially if you like to vary your ramen choices by creative additions), but a few days ago reported an admirable act of charity that I would like to see extended, perhaps even to my own house (please make it some Jha Jhan Myun packets, the kind with oil, veggies, and powder). An anonymous customer walked into an Osaka ramen shop and left (in yen; be creative) more than $10,000, with the instruction to use the money to feed kids. Makes me nostalgic for Juzo Itami's masterpiece Tampopo."
