12. Ramen

I know, I could've filed it under noodles, but it's so distinctive. And it is one of my favorite food groups. It's a definite soul food for long winter nights and it's cold summer version is so refreshing in the summer. And it has noodles. Ahhhh. Also, according to those people who really know these things, in my previous life I was a bad fat Japanese Yakuza boss. Honto de su.
