    Re: Ramen!!

    I don't mind it at all. I only tried it for the first time last week with a chicken and veggie stir fry in a soup thing. Very nice.

    Though it was ramen, it wasn't the instant one with the flavour packet in it, it was dried and probably more expensive (It's the only type/brand I can find around here -_-; ). I'm a huge fan of Asian food so this was another one to add to the list ^^

    Re: Ramen!!

    I love ramen to I uasually eat this if my mom makes something nasty for diner or just for lunch. My fav. flavor is the shrimp I also like the spicy shrimp kind hate the lime kind. I also like beef but I hate the chicken flavor. I like the kind that comes in the cups over the kind that come in the bag.

    Oh and Nissin instant noodles are made in Hong Kong for anyone who's interested.
    If you want to stay Japanophile, stick with the (vastly superior) soba noodles.

    Re: Ramen!!

    to be honest, i'm not sure if i have ever tried ramen. i mean i've gone to some Korean, Vietnamese, and Japanese restaurants and tried there noodle dishes since i've been having a craze for anything pasta or noodle related, but since its all in their own language, i got no idea what it is . but what i've had seems pretty much the same, and well nothing special. pretty much just a mixed soup with noodles and a bit of egg here and there and sometimes with dumplings or something else.

    but i have to admit there was some Japanese cold folded omelet thing that tasted great. can't remember what it was called, but it had a real nice sorta tangy taste to it. new for me since i've always had my omelets warm.

    BTW just a question but does anyone know which country did the teriyaki flavour come from? i see in nearly every asian shop. just out of curiosity.

    Teriyaki is Japanese...

    but 99.9% of the restarants serving it are Chinese... and it isn't prepared in the same way actual teriyaki is. The popular "American" teriyaki tends to be stewed in bulk (buffet style) or pan fried in oil, while the real deal is more akin to rottiserre (ie. slow-broiled) or grilled. The sauce (tare) is also different. Teriyaki chicken is actually pretty obscure in Japan... I've never been served it at a home or seen it on a menu in a restaurant (unless you count Teriyaki burgers). Teriyaki chicken pretty much lives in the pre-made ready-to-eat grocery store meats aisle, in the form of gigantic chicken legs that are obscenely delicious, but don't really go with anything else. Though same sauce and cooking style is used for yakitori... which is obscenely common.

    On that note: did you know that over 3/4s of the Japanese restaurants in the US are owned by Chinese-Americans? That 90% of the Japanese restaurants in France are Chinese-owned? Not to say the food isn't authentic but... alright, no way around it, it usually isn't anywhere near authentic.

    Sort of like ordering Mexican food in Japan... yeah, you can still get a taco... an enchilada if you're really lucky, but it's just not... right.

    Around here "American pizza" has corn, mayonaisse and hot-dogs on it ~_~;

    And what's more is that most of the cooks are Mexicans. Actually that goes for most of the restaurants in the United States. Honestly I rather it be like that instead of having Japanese chefs. Having so call authentic food (which I won't even know since I've never been to Japan) will only give the owners an excuse to charge me more money...

    But for Ramen and/or Instant noodles in general I love it. I like how the Ramen served in some restaurants are thicker than the ones that you can buy in bulk, and yeah I am not talking about UDON. Love the many ways you can make it, with spam, fish cakes, all the works.
