Ramen | October 15, 2008

For many Americans, comfort foods are things like mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, and meatloaf, but for me – there’s nothing like a steamy bowl of ramen to make me feel like home! Other Asians will tell you the magic of ramen is not an exaggeration. There are so many varieties and flavors, Tokyo even has a museum dedicated just to ramen! The obsession with ramen is making its way to mainstream and it’s about time! My favorite brand to make at home is Nong Shim Shin Ramyun. It’s a Korean brand that can be found at most Asian grocery stores. It’s a hot & spicy flavor and the noodles are thick and chewy. I always add a poached egg, veggies (chinese broccoli goes well), and sometimes a few slices of SPAM. Sounds crazy, but don’t knock it till you try it – it may change your life 😉

Other ingredients that can be used:
-char siu (Chinese bbq pork)
-green beans
-bok choy
-frozen mixed seafood
-fried tofu
-fish balls

What are your favorite comfort foods?
