    I like fresh ramen noodles, not the packaged kind, but I am not really sure there's much of a difference between them. There is sooo much sodium in them, they make the body retain water, ew.

    I'll eat them occasionally (like, once or twice a year, tops) - they don't taste too bad with cheese, but I most definitely voted no, because...

    So true. I think it's the super-greasyness combined with saltiness that gets me.

    We get a good kind at the Natural Grocery. Not cheap (>$1.00), but healthful and still very quick to make. No fake chicken, pork or shrimp taste, they're made with seaweed, mushrooms and/or tofu.

    Seems like a good compromise.

    I'm pro, but keep 'em to a min, bro.

    I almost have a heart attack everytime I see the fat content. But my Asian friend is good at dolling them up a bit - adding meat or whatever - so they can be hard to resist. Wouldn't want to live off them though. My friend keeps saying, "when we move out, we're going to be living off Ramen Noodles!" I'm semi-smiling thinking..."no way in hell"...

    Now, see, once you start doctoring Ramen up by putting in chicken and veggies, you're technically cooking anyway, and might as well make something that tastes better than Ramen.

    I probably eat Ramen once a year, and when I do, I eat it as-is, b/c I just feel like eating Ramen for whatever reason. It's like those frozen party pizzas--they're just kind of good for what they are, but don't expect it to taste like actual food.

    EffEm, I'm surprised at you! Homemade pasta is the most amazing thing EVAR. And not all that hard to make. And the dough is really good raw.

    Poor bastards.



    If you ever travel and see these for sale, for God's sake buy them and eat them and then discipline yourself to eat something else for at least one meal a day. Otherwise you'll start to shake and sweat and think you have adult-onset diabetes.

    Tip: drain the noodles before applying the flavourings. No broth. And forget the other flavours, you only need original. Oh, and just-undercooked>just-overcooked.

    Dudes, no offense but you 'Westerners' do not know how to do ramen noodles right. The best ones you can buy in the states are Korean brands and you have to add

    1) Freshly cracked egg
    2) Daikon radish
    3) Kimchi

    This is the 'Ramen 101' triumverate.

    You can also add optional

    4) Scallions
    5) Fish cake (preferably pink and white but non-standard colors accepted as well)

    If you can't get this down, sorry kids, but no soup for you!!!

    I like to eat them if I think Im going to get intestinal parasites. Which happens about 4 days after I eat Top Ramen, 90% of the time.

    In other news, I once survived on only 2 meals a day, which consisted of a package of Top Ramen with a can of soda. I'd like to see David Blaine do that.

    I didn't vote because my answer is 'yes' and 'no'.
    Ramen noodles you by in the stores here in the states are terrible. Way to much sodium.

    Ramen noodles over in Japan, naturally the ones you get at a ramen shop, are very good. Even the instant ramen is pretty good over there.
