Not from those nasty packages. I eat ramen once in a while in a restaurant.

and what do you bet, the ones you eat in a restaurant came right out of those nasty packages

I have to admit and I do not like processed foods, I love ramen noodles. No, we only have them about once a month at the most with the rest of our meal being made from scratch, but doctored up a little they are pretty tasty.

I hated supermarket ramen until I found an old site called ramen rater. The guy loved ramen, was Asian, and tried every flavor of every packet from every country and rated them all, with in put from his readers. So after trying a few of his recommendations, I can say I love La Mian ramen, in Laksa flavor, followed by curry, but uck, hate the chili crab. Indomie makes great flavors and my favorite are Mi Goreng Pedas or just plain Mi Goreng if I don't want spices. People swear by the chicken onion flavor. I used to love NongShim Ramyun gourmet spicy flavor until they started making it in California and the noodles went to mush. My second choice is Ottoji Jin Ramyun spicy flavor, though like a lot of Korean things, it can be a bit sweet, but wow!, so spicy.

I use the regular old supermarket ones: I make sure I do not overcook them, toss the flavor pack, add a little soy souse, green onion and cilantro and well as a bit of OO.

I love crunching the uncooked noodles as a snack, but they're still a diet no-no. Fried carbs!

I do not. I use it for oriental salad, though.

Yes, we eat the chicken flavored ramen noodle products. I break up the noodles while still in the package before I put them in the pot. I often add chopped up chicken meat, a pat of butter and fresh cracked black pepper. Sometimes I use chicken broth or stock instead of water.

Rarely. Once in a while I will have some with an egg mixed in.

I'm still using my Rapid Ramen microwave cooker. 3 min cook time. It still looks brand new after years of use. It was a good $2 expense.
