(I apparently changed my opinions about Ramen since 2014) I now get em by the case and keep em in the truck where I have an inverter, a 20 gal water dispenser to make soooop .Thus I can gen 1000W (as long as I keep the engine going) Greatest lunch on the trail is a beef Ramen and a small can of Bush's baked beans
I reqlly chnged my opinion about Ramen ever since I started using that NISSIN stuff that Panzade was mentioning. Its really flvorful and the noodles can be made almost al dente.
I used to only buy that Ramen "cuppa salt" before and the Nissin has a much lower sodium content.
Is Nissin air-dried? I've really gotten into the air-dried noodle pucks in the last couple of years. I was going to a dance studio on the fringe of Chinatown3 in Toronto and they had grocery stores with an insane variety of ramen noodles and just noodles. The difference between the air-dried noodles and the fried ones is phenomenal. You can get them with flavour packs or just buy bags of the noodle pucks.
Toronto was already ramen resto crazy when this thread started but it's become even crazier. In the spring when Hot Docs premiered another documentary about ramen, they made an evening of it - with a lecture, the film and then a meal at a downtown ramen house.
a good broth base and the perfect egg is what makes/breaks the ramen
how bout a ramen made with that pancetta in a garlicky done taglieatelli noodle done al dente. (I guess it aint ramen anymore).
As I said, Id done a 180 when I found those Nissin Ramen thingies. They sell em at Walmart now. Dont need a Whole Foods or Wegmans (where the exchange rate is governed by OPEC).
Ramen still is something to keep you from remaining hungry. Its not exactly "fine dining"
I wonder if they make a version with stinky tofu like they have in Korea??

In the U.S., you can run over to the Kroger and get some Maruchan brand--they have spicy beef and spicy chicken which are excellent. I usually like to cook up three bags at a time, but I don't use three of the sauce packets--it would strip the skin off the inside of your mouth. They're made in the Yew Ess Ay, so one should be able to find them anywhere.
In Canadia (home of the Canadians) my favorite is the Mr. Noodles brand. I like the Curry Chicken and the Spicy Beef.
