The noodle block. These are really good straight out of the package – crunchy and have a sesame taste.

Powder on the left, seasoned oil on the right.

A little packet of chili powder.

Seasoned oil.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added some minced ham. The noodles are great – nice flavor and texture. They have a sesame-oil like flavor to them I enjoy. The broth is nice as well – a nice rich pork taste. The broth is extremely spicy when the chili powder is added in its entirety. 3.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8850100101044 – get it here.

Pardoning The Turkey Until Tomorrow: The Ramen Rater’s Thanksgiving Breakfast Feast

I am in charge of throwing the turkey in the oven this year at noon. I figured breakfast shouldn’t have anything turkey like involved and pardon the turkey at least ramen-wise for a day. Then Black Friday will be a day that the turkeys will cower – planning on using turkey in some ramen meals for the next week or so – should be awesome! But for now, here’s something I decided to make for breakfast. By the way, here’s what I did for 2011’s Thanksgiving.

Everything But Turkey Thanksgiving Breakfast

Ingredients

  • 1 Nongshim Bowl Noodle Soup Savory Beef (or any other noodles, although these were easy in the microwave)
  • 2 eggs, scrambled
  • ham
  • minced garlic
  • 2 slices processed cheese
  • minced garlic
  • Dua Belibis chili sauce (Sriracha or any other spicy sauce – omit if you don’t like)
  • 1 tbsp oil

Method

  1. Put a pan on the stove and add oil. Heat.
  2. Break your eggs into a little bowl and scramble. Take the ham you have and cut it up.
  3. Cook the Bowl Noodle in the microwave. Usually you cook for three minutes then let it sit for one – don’t! After the three minutes, take it out, stir well and drain very well.
  4. Drop noodles in the pan and fry it up. Stir and stir so it doesn’t stick. Add garlic.
  5. Once the noodles are becoming crisp, add ham and stir in, then add eggs and combine.
  6. Cover and lower heat. Cook for a couple minutes.
  7. At this point, the bottom will be nice and crisp. Flip the whole thing into a bowl. Garnish with cheese and Dua Belibis.

Here’s what you end up with. Note that there’s beef flavored noodles, chicken eggs and pork ham. Even some cheese made from cow’s milk. Everything in there’s not turkey! It came out really good – dig in and Happy Thanksgiving!

Some Thanksgiving FAILS!

Finally, here’s 15 minutes of last yewar’s insanest Black Friday footage. Is acting liker a complete moron really workth a product that costs pennies for a company to make? Home electronics aren’t a great trade for injuries and silliness such as this…  I mean it’s just stuff…

Speaking of stuff… Here’s George Carlin’s take on it.

#653: Dragonfly Instant Noodles Artificial Pork Ribs Flavor

I thought today would be a nice day to have some pork ribs in noodle form! I wonder how it’ll be? I think it’ll pass the test as it’s yet another Dragonfly product. I know it’s wintertime and all but I think that Punksatawnee Phil’s Groundhog Day prediction was incorrect. He saw his shadow, predicting six more weeks of winter. On  the bright side, statistics show he’s been correct  – 39% of the time.

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge).

Clockwise from top: veggies, dry seasoning and finally the seasoned oil.

Seasonings ready to go!

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added a two egg omelet with a little Lindberg Snider Porterhouse & Roast seasoning and a dash of Chef Paul Prudhomme’s de Arbol chile powder. Since it was a bowl of pork noodles, I went with a little ham. Great noodles as usual. The broth was great too – a little bit of spicy and sweet and a nice meaty flavor. Love this stuff – 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC barcode 721557450956 .

This looks absolutely delicious. Yes – I’ll be happy to eat that!

This is pure awesome!

#646: Yamamoto Shoyu Flavor Ramen

Today seemed like a good day for as fancy Japanese bowl of noodles.

Here’s what was on the bottom of the bowl…

Here’s what was on the side of the bowl! Click to enlarge.

One single packet – I somehow expected multiple packets.

A lot of interesting stuff in the packet.

Click image to enlarge. I thought it’d be good in a regular bowl. I added two fried eggs, some Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning, some Kizami Shoga (pickled ginger), some fried shallot and a little ham. Wow – this is good stuff! Shoyu is soy sauce, by the way. The noodles are pretty decent. The broth is nice and tasty – lots of flavor. The veggies were very ample and enjoyable. I loved it! 4.25 out of 5.0 stars! UPC barcode 4979397770017 .

#195: Myojo Chukazanmai Noodles Sesame Flavor

Okay here’s some that I’ve been sitting on for a while. So these are to be served cool – so we’ll see if they’re any good.

A big packet of liquid and a smaller packet of liquid…

So the bulk here is the big packet – a sweet sesame dressing. The little one? Hot mustard!

Click image to enlarge. It said on the back to serve with sliced cucumber, tomato and ham. Well, I had some ham so I tossed some in. So this stuff is pretty good! Kind of sweet and vinegary and with a touch of mustard taste. The noodles are cool and wet (drained and rinsed with cold water) and a little slimy but not gross. I think this is good stuff but not something I’d have again. Maybe but probably not. I’m giving this one a 3.0 out of 5.0 stars – it is unique and interesting and enjoyable, but not my kind of ‘regular’ noodle choice. Get it here.
