I eat a lot of instant ramen at work. We have a coffee maker that has a hot water tap on it. I keep a bowl here at work so I am just bringing in the package of ramen and some toppings (usually Narutomaki, homemade Chashu and some fresh veg). My co-works are familiar with instant ramen, but not with adding toppings.
Bowl of ramen I fixed up at work for lunch.
So I did a story on dressing up instant ramen with toppings.
But I also realized that most of my co-worker where not familiar with some of the better quality instant ramen's out there, or that you could buy instant ramen kits with fresh ramen noodles. So I pulled out some of my ramen packages from my pantry and refrigerator and took some pictures of them.
I thought if anyone had a favorite instant ramen, they could post a picture/description so I (we) might give it a try.
Here is a picture of some of my favorites.
Myojo Chukazanmai has the best quality noodles of any of the dry brick instant ramen’s out there. The noodle brick is not fried like other instant ramens and takes a little longer to cook than the standard 3-minutes. This ramen also cost 3 to 4 times more than your normal package of ramen, but is well worth it.
Nissin Demae Black Garlic Oil Instant Ramen has one of the best tasting soup bases. I normally buy this one by the case.
Fresh instant ramen kits can be found in bigger Asian markets like H-Mart. The ramen out of these kits taste is pretty close to the ramen you get at a Japanese restaurant.
So does anyone have a favorite instant ramen?
