Yes frozen ramen ^^; Food post ahead :P you been warned!
Occasionally husband and I would have some instant ramen/noodles at home, hoping to find something which will tide us over for craving of authentic Japanese food.
Notes: I personally like the texture of this noodle, reminds me a bit of soba? Husband doesn’t like the noodles as much ^^; The soup base is pure win in our books tho!
The frustrating thing about eating out is, we have really yet to find an actual place locally which satisfy our craving due to the style/taste of cooking being inconsistent at various places.
One of our favorite Japanese cuisine has to be ramen.
We went to shop at Yaohan a while back and discovered Frozen Ramen, bought some home to try :)
There is no actual meat or vegetables inside the package, but what makes or breaks the ramen for us is the broth base and the final texture of the ramen after cooking.
Notes: We liked the texture of the noodles in the brand below, but the soup base is very salty, overpowers everything sometimes ^^;
You need to add around 1 and half cup of hot water to, to go with the ramen which you cook for around 3-4 minutes to, depending on the instructions per different brands.
To make it a more satisfying meal, I would prepare some sides to go with the ramen, example a boiled egg, either spam or meat/vegetables left over from dinner the night before.
Chopped spring onions and frozen corn are good too, and a sheet of seaweed right at the end before we start nomming ^^
Couple random misc stuff :P
Added canned peach to home made sushi once ^^; I liked it :3
Shelter kitties which we checked out before we moved ^^; the tabby reminded us a bit of our late Meowmeow ^^;
Give me one please >_<
Haha, T&T actually has quite a bit of imported Japanese food and cooking materials. The best is when they’re on sale, since its usually at least 25% off the already somewhat reasonable prices. It’s funny how they also own that supposedly Japanese supermarket in Yaohan. Kintaro is still the best for ramen in Vancouver though, even if it’s busy as hell :3
yes I gotta agree that it’s best when on sale! I’m not a fan of kintaro tho lol! I think I went there less than 5 times :P
I can throw a pack really hard in your general direction… I think :P
lol. My wife eats frozen ramen a lot. We buy the big pack of 5 one at T&T, and use chicken broth.
Oh but seriously I really liked the tonkotsu broth o_o it’s a bit milky in colour, and with spring onions etc sooo fragrant :P tonite we’re gonna eat it again (Muahhaha)
You have Yaohan there? We used to have one here, ages ago, but one day it just disappeared… I thought they went bankrupt:P
Ohh yum! I’m inspired!
Frozen ramen, that’s the first I’ve ever heard of it, now I gotta find some!
Thanks for the pics,now I know which brand to properly choosefrom.
ramen looks tasty! minus the meat for me. and the sushi looks really good! peach sounds daring and exotic in there! awww at shelter kitties so precious!
Yes we have, in Canada sometimes it feels like I travel back in time ^^;;;;
Good luck! :D Hope U enjoy!
which would U choose? ^^
hehe peach gives a sweet taste for sure!
Is that spam you are using?!
I don’t think I’ve really had Japanese ramen before… I usually eat the Taiwanese kind or Korean. But that first one looks really good.
haha yes :P and yes! The first one is really good! I love it :)
oh! SPAM! It’s been a while since I last had spam. You just made me want to buy a can next time I go shopping! ^^
huhuhu (canned) SPAM LOVE unite! :P
