Ramen Love

by keryge

Another fairly entertaining food read from the Atlantic, which is ostensibly about Lucky Peach, the new food mag from Momofuku‘s David Chang, but is more actually about ramen noodles, which, when done fancily, look like this:

This looks pretty good, but I also like the Maruchan beef flavor.  The noodles must be overcooked so they’re slightly transparent, then dumped into a bowl with the flavor packet powder, stirred around for a bit, then topped off with about a third of a cup of the cooking liquid.  Then I eat them Italian style, wrapping the noods around the tines of a fork while being cupped by a spoon.

By the way, I found this photo on a Turkish-language forum dedicated to Japanese culture. It was confusing.
