Here's another (easy)

boil dry soba noodles from package

decant some premade dipping sauce

Strain the noodles out of the water (don't discard noodle water)

Eat with optional wasabi and nori seaweed strips.

Pour hot noodle water into the remaining dipping sauce and drink like tea or soup

Instead of salt I've been using fish sauce from Thailand in the water. Adds umami. Must use overhead fan though as it can get stinky.

/ Noodles of all types I do this to the consternation of the cat.

I found a recipe online with anchovies, oil, and cheese that is ridiculously simple and satisfies my anchovies fix.

When I have fresh herbs I make meatballs and tomato sauce.

If I'm buying them in a restaurant, they're Singapore rice noodles.

Sometimes all you've got are packets of instant ramen, in which case I've found these tips useful:

- Throw the seasoning packet right out and use bouillon or Better Than Bouillon
- Sauté garlic and ginger
- Nearly any random vegetables can be added, just be aware of how to cook them
- Slide in a raw egg and let cook in the simmering broth for about 6 minutes
- Sprinkle sliced scallions on top (or sauté earlier if you prefer them softer)
- Dash of hot sauce

Enjoy!

spamazon-US has that same Momoya one, and we're about halfway down the last jar of S&B so I might as well try it on. I mean, how can anyone go wrong with crispy garlic? Narrator: you cannot. ordered: I will thank you or curse you.

Nice, I'm tickled to hear that. Funny you brought it up, as the wife and I were discussing that very recommendation literally this morning over yogurt with honey. "You know, some random dude on the internet bought some coffee honey after I started raving about this stuff. Wonder what he thought of it? Guess I'll never know." Thanks for the update... seriously.

Not sure if honey differs that much brand to brand, or country to country (I suspect so), but I'm glad it wasn't a flop. I got a bottle of orange blossom at the same time, and perhaps the contrast between the two made the smokey/dark notes stand out more in my mind. Either way, happy that I didn't lead you astray.

If you don't like the "looks spicy, but not spicy, a little spicy" ra-yu, I'll be amazed. It's gotta be one of the top culinary finds this year in my book. Get a block of silky tofu, and drop a big dollop of the stuff on top. Oh yeah..

The Red Zone: One large egg, 3 oz flour.  Mix, knead, roll, cut, boil in salted water.   I kicked green box noodles years ago


I'm too lazy to knead.  My mom always made hers in the food processor.  You slowly add your liquid 'til it forms a ball and rolls around in the bowl, pulling the sides clean.

And if you have a pasta roller, you can just run it through a few times on the widest setting, folding it back over itself each time, and then adjust the thickness to whatever you like.

My mom's recipe for green noodles (our family's go-to for lasagna) is:

In the bowl of a food processor, combine: 3-1/2c. unbleached flour ; 2 extra large eggs ; 2 tsp. olive oil  1/2 pkg. frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry.

Process until mixture forms a ball.  Add liquid from spinach if necessary.  Cover and let dough rest for 1 hr.

And my great grandmother's recipe for 'macaroni dough' is:

Mix together : 2 c. flour, 3 eggs, slightly beaten, 2 TB oil, 2 TB to 1/4 c. milk or water.

(we have a lot of 'receipts' with no actual instructions, so 'mix together' might've been my mom's addition)

But I'm lazy ... and as I'm usually cooking for one, I usually either pick up the 2kg box of individually portioned bundles of somen or other asian noodles, and if I'm in the mood for fresh pasta, I'll get the 'korean knife cut noodles' in the refrigerated section at the international market.

And I can't say I necessarily have a 'favorite' noodle preparation.  I love asian ones (singapore rice noodles, tom yum soup, pho, ramen, yakisoba, etc.), and many italian preparations (carbonara, pesto, butter and cheese, white sauce, etc.)

never quite expected it would be even close to the same as the specific Guatemalan one you'd mentioned, hell even the same honey I get from the same farm varies even within the same year.

it's... wow. at first I was all just "ok this is decent raw unfiltered/unpasteurized stuff" but after a couple tries... yeah. there's this caramel part I never tasted in honey before, and at the end kind of a slight medicinal thing, not in a bad chemical way but almost more like saffron? lol now I sound like some jackwagon wine snob. definitely unique at least to my own experience, and glad I went for it, so thanks yet again. and now that I know this novomel brand is decent, I may have to find out exactly what the heck 'Cipo Uva' honey is all about.

that taberu ra~yu is arriving on Tuesday, I'll try to let you know in some other unrelated foodtab thread lol.

and to everyone else (Vermithrax Perjorative phlegmjay dodecahedron sorries if left anyone out) turning this into a garlic/chili crisp thread... champion! er, I mean, "farking daisy as shiat!"

For something simple, quick, and delicious just go with your basic ginger scallion sauce (neutral oil, scallions, grated ginger, dash of soy sauce, and salt to taste) with ramen, soba, etc.

And to give it a nice extra little kick, toss in some gochujang when melding the noodles and the sauce.

it's delicious as is, but can be built upon with a variety of things like pork belly, poached egg, tofu, and so on.

oh also - coupla days ago we went to our local South Asian supermarche - normally I could spend hours wandering in there, but jeebus the christos on his tree the amount of stupid farknuttery jackass people without masks coming right up behind you - I'd wanted to try checking it out for that other honey you'd mentioned, but no just no. we got the 1 thing wanted, 28oz bag of cinnamon sticks for the wife's daily covfefe yay, and a 1gal milk only 'cos it was on the way out, and then escaped.

maybe in a year or three when the plague ends? meanwhile there's an h-mart 30-45min drive from us, I've been itching to pore over their dried noodles and  frozen dumplings and also I'm finding it hard to give into the spamazon prices for simple stuff like tsuyu or sesame oil...

Birnone: 家系ラーメン 盛ト家


You're probably looking at the toppings only.  Usually you pick your favorite ramen type (base) and add a topping or two. More often than not is 800-900 yen, plus 100-300 yen for whatever toppings you got.

The ticket machine picture lists karanegi ramen as 900 yen, and cha-shu topping as 260 yen. Which is what I typically get at this place. That's 1160 yen, hence you put 2000 in the machine (assuming you aren't carrying change).

I don't remember what toppings they offered, but if anyone's in the Cambridge, Mass area, there's a ramen shop in a mostly hidden food court at Lindsey University.  It seems to either be named "Porter Exchange" "Porter Exchange Mall" or "The Shops at Porter".

Basically, there's a mall on the first floor of the building, and near one of the entrances, there's a small sushi place ... but if you go down the side hallway, you'll end up in what's almost an indoor alley of food stalls.  There are both ramen and udon shops in there, as well as bubble tea, a bakery, a Korean restaurant ... and I can't remember what else.

(one of the people on my project used to be based at Harvard/CfA ... I went to visit him for a week a few years back and as I was feeling a bit under the weather, we'd go there for various noodle soups for lunch, hitting a different place each day.  I remember a bowl of udon big enough to double as a facial, and something from the korean place that really opened up my sinuses.  Unfortunately, he moved to Boulder, so I never got a chance to go back when I wasn't congested)

I went to visit him for a week a few years back and as I was feeling a bit under the weather, we'd go there for various noodle soups for lunch, hitting a different place each day.  I remember a bowl of udon big enough to double as a facial, and something from the korean place that really opened up my sinuses.  Unfortunately, he moved to Boulder, so I never got a chance to go back when I wasn't congested)


oh hells to the yes that little mall! we used to take the T from back bay (actually back then we had the energy to walk from bay state road to Downtown Crossing plus it's quicker than the farking green line lol, or just walk across the hahvahd bridge or even the Longfellow if we were off on some adventure) just to eat there. I can't recall if there was ramen at the time (this would have been late 90s) but we inhaled so many plates of kats'kareiraisu over the years.

plus it's just a neat little place to hang out for an afternoon!

kyuzokai: The ticket machine picture lists karanegi ramen as 900 yen, and cha-shu topping as 260 yen. Which is what I typically get at this place. That's 1160 yen, hence you put 2000 in the machine (assuming you aren't carrying change).


Who doesn't carry change in Japan? If you don't you'll just end up with even more. I mean, look at your transaction - now you have 1 500 yen coin, 3 100 yen coins and 4 10 yen coins to deal with.

just recalled that lurking in the kitchen I still have maybe 3 or 4 packets of glass noodles what need used up (although I have the suspicion they last forever!) - now there's something requiring serious crispy garlic chili oil, they have even less flavor than tofu.
