Revolutionizing ramen

I got my first Christmas gift! Two Ramen Spoon + Forks arrived at Ajumma's doorstep courtesy of my aunt and uncle, yesterday. Masami Takahashi originally designed this utensil for use at his noodle restaurant chain in Japan so his customers could drink the broth and grasp the ramen. MoMA sells them and touts they're stylish and environmentally-friendly vs. disposable chopsticks. Ajumma's excited to use them as I've never been able to navigate chopsticks in one hand and a spoon in my other.

Nooschi received the Ramen Spoon + Fork back in May. Nooschi's food blog includes a review of the product and nice photos (like the one above. Thanks, Nooschi!).
