Mar. 25th, 2006 @ 09:46 pm how to make chinese-style instant ramen
Current Mood: contemplativeculturally appropriate
Current Music: 公 - 戦舞 -Trance mix-
Ingredients:

1 square package cheap instant ramen (do not buy the sealed paper bowls, as they will already be Chinese-style if they are from Taiwan)
impatience

1. Prepare ramen according to directions.
2. Add soy sauce until the broth becomes a rich golden brown.
3. Enjoy the vastly improved taste.

If Japanese people catch you desecrating their beloved national cuisine in such a manner, they may fall to the ground and weep, and possibly try to kill you. This adds to the authenticity.

For university-style ramen, eat in a former Japanese military barracks that has never been painted.

That is one of the funniest recipes I've ever heard.

I'm totally trying that in a public place once I go to Japan.

It is revenge for them selling ramen with what are basically glorified ketchup packets, and calling it "instant Italian style spaghetti".

I don't recommend the maruchan Soba noodle things that decafe has if that's how you feel. Not very different from a regular ramen brick and like five times as expensive. I did enjoy mine, but it did not strike me as authentic; more like uninspired money making.
