I really miss eating fresh saimin and ramen. I haven't found a restaurant in Utah that makes fresh ramen. If you know of one, please pass the info on.
When I went to the Asian market, I walked very slowly down the noodle aisle looking for something familiar. I found some yellow noodles that looked good and bought them. A long time ago I worked in a restaurant that made fresh ramen. I have seen it being made, but I don't remember how to make the dashi, or broth. I searched the internet for a ramen recipe I could make with my noodles. Getting discouraged by one thing or another, the noodles have sat untouched for a while.
I didn't look at the back of the noodle package until tonight. The cooking directions are clearly not English. Lucky for me I am kitchen lingual. Yeah, figure they are noodles - just boil them.
The noodles didn't end up in a nice tasty bowl of ramen, rather the bed for some chicken and veggies.
I picked up this dipping sauce at the farmer's market, and it's delish. A little goes a long way, so I just drizzled it on top of my dinner. Oh yummy!
noodles + panko crusted chicken + veggies + Noona's dipping sauce = best dinner I've made in a while
