From speaker advice to ramen advice.
I don't know a lot about ramen except for the 10 for $10 packages at my local grocery (I prefer to drain the water and then stir in the spice packet. I don't really care for them as a soup). But about every three months I can sometimes make it to the big city to one of the international farmers markets. Last time I was there I was overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of different brands and kinds in an entire aisle. Most of them I can't even read. From the US, Korea, Thailand, and of course Japan. I think many of you enjoy these and I think they are popular in their home countries. I'm not even sure all of them were ramen or noodles. Just instant meals in a bowl.
I bought one from Myojo, imported from Japan) that was ok but not knock my socks off. It was a mustard/mayo soy sauce thing. I left the dried vegetable packet out. I also bought a "gourmet spicy" one from Nongshim, product of the USA, that was better.
Rather than playing hit and miss with the few trips I get to make to the city, can anyone recommend some favorites that I can be on the look out for next time I get the opportunity?
