    Squirt in the sriracha hot sauce, a little hoisen sauce, maybe crack an egg into that pot-o-goodness and ya got yourself one sodium-rich treat I tell ya.

    Oriental flavor, of course.

    I like ramen with stirfry on top as a nice break from rice.

    Real ramen. From the little shops in or under the train stations. With fresh gyoza.

    Ramen is best enjoyed as a starving student, any flavor will do as long as its consumed raw and crunchy.

    Ramen should NEVER be eaten by gainfully employed adults... :)

    Whenever I eat ramen I get slightly depressed. It has a lot to do with when I was younger my mother telling me repeatedly that ramen is only something poor people eat. I don't know why she told me that, she ruined cheap food for me.

    Ramen can save yo ass.

    They are good in an emergency because you can eat them uncooked.

    There is this HUGE Asian grocery store with about 20 different brands of ramen that have no English on the packages. There are pictures of what flavor they are.

    Pork, Chicken, Shrimp, Oriental in that order. All yummy.

    We have ramen in the vending machine for $.40, what a rip (but it always sells out first).

    AB means places where the owner makes the noodles by hand. A world away from instant ramen although instant is popular here too. Once you've had "real" ramen the instant type is a sad substitute. If you have a good Japanese restaurant nearby ask if they have "tonkotsu ramen" which is pork stock ramen.

    When I was in Guam, I saw my first ever ramen restaurant. It was awesome, you are right. But I don't think there are many places around here with it.

    The instant stuff I buy at the Asian market is a considerable jump above "Cup O' Noodles", too.

    Tonkatsu ramen?

    Surely you jest.

    Tonkatsu is a delicacy best fried in big vats:

    No TonkOtsu (ton=pig, kotsu=bone) ramen, sometimes called Hakata ramen, specialty of Fukuoka (Kyushu). I did once have fried chicken ramen which was actually pretty good.
    I like your site btw, always enjoy reading it.:thumb:

    Why isn't there dead asian hooker flavored ramen?
    I'd eat that like it was the last meal on earth.

    I just had a package of chicken. It helps soothe an angry stomach which is what I am experiencing right now. :dead:

    Chicken is the best because you can buy a box in Costco that costs like 89 cents for a 350 packs.

    you've obviously never had them in tokyo. And, if I had the choice between ramen and a chris king headset or a steak and a generic headset, what do you think I would do?
