Ck hates ramen threads. Its one food poorfags can afford go figure. Personally i like shin ramyun ramen. The noodles are thicker and they have a better texture than top ramen. I like the fact that the noodles are in a circular shape so it fits in the pot more properly. I like to add cilantro at the last second. Slice in some onions and throw them in the last 20 or 30 seconds of cooking. I dont always have meat scraps to throwin my ramen but when i do its always tasty. Im not too crazy about putting an egg in the ramen. It never cooks enough for the yolk to get hard so when it breaks it contaminates the broth with thick yellow disgustingness
I'm sick of typing out the same list of suggestions for making your ramen into an actual meal in all these threads. So I'll just say add some vegetables and an egg to your ramen to elevate yourself out of pure poverty-mode
Anyone ever tried this?
Supposedly it's spicy as shit
Just wondering if it tastes any good
Fuck off Brit/Aus/etc fag.
this shit. also the lime shrimp flavor. and shin ramyun
>reddit: the ramen
Pic related is the best instant ramen I've had.
why not crack it in while the water is boiling, and then add the noodles after so you'll get a fully cooked poached egg.
alternatively, cook the egg the way you like, then put it in your bowl.
These are really good if you can find them.
did they discontinue this? the creamy sauce makes it much more filling than regular instant noodles
I just bought some packs of ramen and chow mein. they better be good or we'll nuke them again
Isn't this the same brand? Would these taste the same?
I tried a few different Lucky Me! brand flavors just recently and they were all pretty mediocre.
My time has come...
Im the Ja/ck/ of Ramen
Am I the only one that prefers the soup version?
Noodles: These are one of the best noodles Ive had the privelidge of eating. Running at around 4mm, these are the thickest of the 짬뽕 ramen packs that have been recently released. These great thick noodles are incredibly chewy with lots of curves that hold some soup and oil. Bringing all the flavours to your mouth with every slurp.
Veggies: cabbage, laver, red pepper, dried squid. An interesting combination that rehydrated quite well. The squid and laver brought lots of seafood flavour but did not overpower the broth. The squid pieces were fairly large and the chewy meat was welcome inbetween bites of noodle. The cabbage was in nice large pieces that truly satisfied. I enjoyed the red pepper for bringing a different texture, and a touch of its natural flavour.
Broth. Boy we have a winner here. Dominant flavour is liquid smoke. A tad overwhelming but brings you to smoky heaven. Good amount of spice works well with the smoke. The squid flavour lends itself really well.
A seafood flavour fest that has you craving more. Tastes a bit like 닭발 in the best way possible. Not oniony or peppery or garlicy. Just a chili pepper spice with support by the smoky flavour.
1. Shin Ramyun
2. The one from Indonesia (top left)
3. Mama duck flavor
I did mine on the stovetop with boiling water instead of microwave. I think that makes a difference with the final result
the're pretty spicy, the spiciest noodles I have ever had. Everytime I get a 5 pack the korean cashier always asks me if I know what I'm buying. If you don't like/can't handle quite abit of chili avoid them.
if you add bok choi and chicken to it you've got a real decent meal
How does shin ramen black compare to the original? I can't find any and it costs way too much to get them imported to Aus.
I prefer the black label version. It seems to have a better flavor while not being so spicy your asshole puckers from just smelling the seasoning like the red label one.
Also if you can't handle the spice eat this soup with a Dewshine Mountain Dew. The flavors don't really go together but it's not awful and the drink kills the heat instantly
From the same company that brought you ES: The Drink
Personally I like picking up a roasted chicken from the store and using the meat in the ramen cuz I'm too lazy to cook a whole chicken. Scallions, some enoki mushrooms, splash of soy sauce. Good shit.
What is the best kind of Ramen that you can buy in Canada? Maruchan is $80 for a single bag here to get it shipped from the US.
Making something else for dinner tonight but will update tomorrow if this threads still around nigga
Ive posted this in every fucking ramen thread ive been in... Is best for fried instant.
Best instant is fresh and refrigerated.
I have some leftover turkey from Christmas that I've been shredding and making pho with, it's pretty good.
I like this brand. The duck/garlic one is good. That particular spicy shrimp they carry at walmart so it's easier to buy. All the packets piss me off, I want to get every unhealthy bit out of them.
It's funny because there is a frozen pizza thread right now. People don't always give a complete shit about nutritional value or culinary expertise over what they personally like, shocking I know
>really get that shit rolling
>crack egg into water
>turn down the heat to medium
>let it go for 4 minutes
>add in noodle brick
>continue as normal
I like mine hard/soft boiled, for at least an actual bite of egg rather than shreds of tiny egg slivers.
At the lack of a response, I did some experimentation this afternoon with a ball of generic egg/salt/flour/water pasta dough.
>potato ricers don't work with dough
>cookie dough extruders don't work with dough
>mandolin slicers don't work with dough and it's a fucking mess
>i'm not even sure why I tried a blender, but it didn't work and i had to re-knead everything
>sticking dough between two plastic cutting mats and putting something heavy on it to flatten it didn't work, but i learned that flour is my friend.
>cutting flattened dough with a pizza cutter didn't work, inconsistent as fuck
>flouring a single plastic cutting mat and rolling dough flat with a floured rolling pin and then cutting it into little strips with a long straight edged knife did work.
I bought a hand crank meat grinder / pasta extruder about an hour later. Not bad for a first try.
hopefully someone can answer this soon.
I usually buy maruchan ramen, and I went to asian market to buy
and it came with this paste packet, do i add that while I am cooking the ramen or after?
All the times I've gotten a paste packet, It's to be added with the seasoning packet after you pour the boiling ramen into the bowl.
If you're microwaving it, microwave the noodles in water first, and as it comes out, put in the seasoning packets.
vegetable packets are added before cooking.
i usually did that but it seems the brand i bought tastes like shit, i guess im use to maruchan and nissin, any other brands i should try from the asian market? it seems like these noodles don't absorb the flavoring.
>so spicy your asshole puckers from just smelling the seasoning like the red label one
red label is hardly spicy at all
maybe it's because i'm a spic
You're a guy who buys habaneros from the supermarket. No commercial food is as spicy as a habanero. You have to find specialty stuff after that, and you get used to it, you build up your tolerance.
>came to /ck/ for a Ramen thread
>it's the top thread when I open the page
What brand though. Top Ramen, Maruchan or Sapporo?
Judge all you want, but as long as it's not seafood flavor, I think it's good. Plus, it really helps flush my digestive system out. Gives me the most amazing shits ever. Like, if you feel constipated, it will clear the fuck out of your system.
Man, you don't want to fuck with those guys. That's le steam team. Word says they were the most fearsome gang of the Victorian era.
Left to right:
Reginald Smoker - You might think he got the name from the cigarette, but he actually got it in prison. They say he could smoke cocks so fast he could literally vaporize them.
The Bear - Smoker's best friend and personal muscle. Loves to cuddle and break necks.
Doctor Dingleberry - Even without his eyes he can peer into the souls of men.
Count Pennytits - No one knows where he came from. Can stretch his limbs farther than stretch armstrong and take the form of a canadian warbler.
Jeremiah Wellington the Third - They say he's the reason the British took over India. Gets the jump on enemies by camouflaging himself in piles of shit.
The Accountant - Jewish.
Le Operateur - He's so damn good with a gun that they banned HIM in Britain.
Gideon Gravy - Master mechanic and chef. Can also take the form of a canadian warbler.
Postin a pic from my recent travels around japan.
Real ramen is fuckin good shit, especially as a set meal. I miss it.
I'mma a pussy faggot who can't take their heat. Just ordered a variety box the other day.
Pic related is probably my favorite, followed by Shin Ramyun. Usually add some frozen shrimp near the end of cooking.
This with eggs has been my daily lunch as of late
I'm about to have pic related with four eggs, and a cup of rice in the soup after I eat all the noodles. It's going to be grand.
Got some in my pantry. Yeah, it tastes good. Real good. All things considered it's not like unbearably hot. Probably would make Joey make WOO-WOOOO! noises though. It will however make your shits later... Very interesting.
>two grams of sodium per serving
I shouldn't be eating four of these a day, right?
Mix a tiny bit of the spice packet and build it up per preference.
SO and I tried to man ourselves through it and ended up chucking the whole thing. Don't underestimate the spiciness.
Don't get me wrong-- I love their gyoza or chahan set as much as the next guy, but their ramen is only a slight step above cafeteria level.
Gotta go with the random local joints... best places are the ones that don't serve paper-thin pork cuts.
fuck you, thin noodles are way better. They don't get mushy like the thick ones. They cook quicker. You can snap the brick in half more cleanly.
Rice noodles are absolute worst behind Maruchan
I just bought a 16 pack case of this for $17.17 at Amazon. It was a reorder. I enjoyed them quite a lot last time.
Never thought i'd see the day someone else would talk about Wai Wai, my home currently has an entire box of it and maybe some vegetable ones in the cabinet.
They're good, the company puts flavour in the noodles themselves, and other spice packets.
I personally like eating them raw because i don't like eating thin noodles, if they started selling their noodles as thick as shin ramyun it would be great.
Best is Nissin Soba noodles Classic flavour, no contest
The only way to eat ramen is boil water break the maruchan picante chicken shit into four blocks and let it cook for like 2 or 3 minutes that's all it takes. Dont put seasoning in while it cooks you have to drain the water then put seasoning on just the noodles. The noodles are disgusting when you cook them too long they get too soft and slimy and gross as fuck my way is the best way ever
I don't have a picture, but our local asian market carries fresh/refrigerated Sun ramen. They had three flavors, and I got the shoyu and tonkotsu flavors. Literally, the best ramen I've ever eaten.
Spicy as fuck. Good flavor. Even the Korean guy I know thinks they are crazy spicy.
Pic related are delicious. Comes with some sesame oil and an dehydrated egg block that cooks into the soup. Also good are Ottogi Ramen Bokki bowls, unfortunately the price for the bokki on amazon has doubled and I can't find another supplier
Never really ate that much noodles but yeah when i picked Ko-lee mainly because they were the only halal in the store.
