Click to enlarge and enjoy the film! It was interesting – the crisp ramen in concert with the sauce mixture was reminisent of a cheese bite – like an appetizer with fried crispy on the outside and soup cheese inside. But the bite I had next which included the Slim Jim was vexing. It reminded me of fish which was strange. All in all, it’s been a while since I’ve attempted a kind of Franken-noodle and well worth it. Thank, Lane!

A Recipe Using Prima Taste Laksa


Prima Taste Laksa Rice

I usually wake up at 5 in the morning, take a ton of pictures, edit them, get a post ready and then around lunchtime do the actual pictures and cooking and review. I’ve done it this way for a while and it’s a pretty good schedule for me, especially with a one year old in the house with his own schedule. Today I thought I’d take a day off and maybe have something different for lunch.

I was planning on having some Prima Taste Laksa LaMian – the Wholegran version that’s #1 on this year’s The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Instant Noodles Of All Time 2016 Edition. But then I thought maybe I’d mix it up a little. The recipe I used was an experiment, but here it is below.


Prima Taste Laksa Rice


1 pkg Prima Taste Laksa (actually, you could use any brand of noodles as long as it has seasoning sachets and isn’t a dry noodle)

instant rice

garnishes (I used hard boiled egg, mung bean sprouts, fried garlic, chicken, tofu puffs, coriander and Sriracha chilli sauce)



Okay it’s really simple: everyone’s had fried rice, right? Well, you usually have to cook the rice. So instead of cooking the rice in water, why not use instant rice and let it cook in instant noodle broth? Most instant noodle recipes I see have this snarky ‘toss the seasonings – those are bad’ kind of attitude. This one actually is the opposite – toss the noodles and use the seasonings! You could have a ton of different varieties – I really liked the Prima Taste Laksa today, but think – beef, tom yum, seafood – it’s pretty much endless. The trick is guessing how much of the instant rice to add. This pack calls for 500ml boiling water, then to add the seasoning sachet contents and bring to a boil. I then added 1 1/2 cups of rice. and covered it. I looked at it a few times, giving it a stir here or there. It ended up being the right amount – but for a pack of noodles that calls for 400ml boiling water, that amount of rice could be too much. I also added in the chicken while the rice cooked in the broth. Afterwards when it was all done, I fluffed the rice and added in all the garnishes. It came out really good! something new to try!


Recipe: The Ramen Rater’s Deep Fried Instant Noodle Cheese Bites

When I was very young, we had a visitor from a music group come into our classroom. He told us about a song his band did that was written by a band member when he was sick. He talked to us about how when you don’t feel good, sometimes your mind can go in different directions; that it can be a good time to embrace creativity. I thought that kind of odd, but have also found it to be true. I remember playing Asteroid on my old Atari 2600 and using a different strategy and getting a really high school – I was home with the flu.
Well today, I’m under the weather. I’ve been sneezing and runny-nosed and achy – you know the drill. Well, inspiration reared it’s head again. With all the things people have been trying with instant noodles lately, I thought maybe this would be good. I would absolutely love to see some pictures if you guys attempt making it! With that, I introduce the instant noodle cheese bite.

The Ramen Rater’s Deep Fried Instant Noodle Cheese Bites

  • 1 package instant noodles
  • 1 egg
  • string or any kind of ‘stick’ cheese
  • cooking spray


  1. Crush the instant noodle block into very small pieces
  2. Cook the instant noodles as directed on the package
  3. Drain the noodles well
  4. Return noodles to the pan. Crack egg and scramble seperately. Pour into noodles and combine thoroughly. Chill for 45 minutes.
  5. Using a knife, slice the cheese into cubes
  6. Take a plate and put some wax paper down on it. Add a thin coat of cooking spray
  7. Make small balls of the noodle mixture with a piece of the cheese in the center and place on the sheet
  8. Deep fry until outside is golden brown
  9. Place on paper towel to cool and soak excess oil

Like I said, I’d love to see your pictures of this one – I’ll do a video soon!

Recipe: Murder League All Stars’ “Crazy Hunan Ramen Nuggets”

So my friend Adam B. over at Ladies’ Choice Productions clued me into an article in Hip Rock Magazine called “Reigning Ramens: Stellar artists introducing a new ramen noodle recipe.” Looks like this is a monthly column where they do a bio about a hip hop/metal band and get them to submit a recipe.

This month’s recipe is from Murder League All Stars,who were coined by Sean Lynch of The Source Magazine Online as “…a cross breed with a sound and look of Cypress Hill-meets-Beastie Boys-meets-Rage Against The Machine.”  When I first saw the title of this recipe, I thought it said ‘Human’ instead of ‘Hunan.’ They’re all from Jersey and proud of it. Here’s their recipe:

Crazy Hunan Ramen Nuggets


  •  2 packs beef or chicken Ramen noodles
  • 1/8 cup Hot Wing Sauce of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons of Wok oil or Spicy oil
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon hot Hungarian paprika
  • 1/4 cup Orange juice
  • 1 bag sliced frozen bell pepper & onion mixture
  • 14 Breaded Chicken nuggets of your choice

Here’s what I got. I am gonna use my own onions and bell peppers since I already got em.

  How It’s Done

  1. Heat the nuggets in a toaster oven or stove as the package directs.
  2. In Large pan, boil Ramen noodles; do not break up.
  3. When soft, throw in bag of frozenbell pepper mix.
  4. While this is boiling for about 5-6 minutes, prepare in a large bowl 1 ramen flavor packet, Wok Oil, vegetable Oil, hot wing sauce, Paprika & O.J. Mix well, add hot nuggets & coat completely.
  5.  Strain ramen and vegetable mixture and throw it in the bowl with the nuggets while they are still hot. Toss well. Serve the noodle pepper part with the nuggets arranged on top.

I went ahead and made a half batch of this stuff – pretty easy to halve everything. I don’t think I can even remember the last time I had one of these little things.

Here’s the sauce all combined and ready to get down.

Here’s what I ended up with (click image to enlarge). I thought I’d use a South Korean Naengmyeon cold noodle soup bowl for this (it’s got that shiny chrome-like bling and it’s metal). I think what this could’ve used was some pineapple – that would’ve made it better. the wing sauce kind of infiltrates all the other flavors. It wasn’t bad though.
