Instant ramen is the ultimate comfort food. Everyone has their favorite brand of instant ramen as well as their own way of preparing the noodles. I personally like my noodles cooked al dente, with not too much water/broth, and of course, the heavenly egg yolk. I’m a fan of the Thai tom yom style ramen and because I grew up in Singapore, I love instant Malaysian-style mee goreng noodles.
However, I do have a soft spot for Korean instant ramen. One recipe I’ve yet to try involves putting American cheese on top of my ramen. I’ve seen my Korean friends do it and though I found it a bit odd, it seems more appealing after watching Chef Ray Choi, the owner of L.A.’s famous Kogi taco truck, prepare his “perfect” ramen recipe in this video. Word to the wise, don’t watch this video past midnight.
