    I must say I'm biased - the ramen I grew up on in Indonesia is my favorite, both Supermie (which my american friends think is hilarious) and Indofood.

    Snack at elementary school often consisted of a bag of ramen that we would squish to break apart the noodles, and then open up and add the spices. I still think it's good and I can't believe American kids haven't discovered it yet. Can't be any worse then our overly seasoned potato chips.

    Cool video, Cathy2. Thanks.

    I've seen videos of guys making the hand-made noodles. It would be interesting to taste them side by side, to find out what the difference is.

    Picking up various Hmart items and could not resist Samyang Spicy Chicken Ramen w/cheese. Astoundingly, it was tasty, though I'm good on sodium until mid November.

    My current favorite packaged ramen is Shin Ramyun Black, typically spicy. A little more balance, though only in comparison to other Asian instant noodles. There is an astounding variety, H Mart Niles shows 140 options on their web site alone. Next I want to dip my toe in the Malaysian instant noodle game. :)

    Busy and on a budget? 12 of the best and worst instant noodles
    Dominic Armato, Arizona Republic newspaper and once a regular poster/moderator on LTHforum did this piece in August. He tried 40 ramen noodles, then offered the top and bottom 12. Since he has sensibilities we can relate to, his list is more meaningful than most.

    My family, kids especially, love Neoguri. One of the things we had to bring whenever visiting them at college was a case of Neoguri.

    Best: Samyang Cheese Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen in the top tier. Nice to see Dom is on the same cheesy hot chicken ramen page as me. :)

    Thanks for posting this, Cathy. I've always enjoyed Dom's writing and there were a few that made me laugh out loud.

    I just saw this on another thread, which can be useful here, too:
    Subject: Can Naf Naf's success be repeated?

    :(

    I just wandered through a discussion on the New York Times food page regarding an instant ramen recipe that used butter and slices of American cheese. Many people were horrified and refused to even consider making it because it so violated their ramen principles. Then it turned out that Southern California Korean-Americans have long ago instituted precisely this recipe as one of their stalwarts for feeding the kids after school. It's their "peanut butter and jelly sandwich." Can't get more authentic than that. Then, it turns out that the folks who tried the recipe said it tasted pretty damn good.

    Authentic, schmauthentic. If it tastes good and/or meets your functional needs, eat it!
