wife came back and i made her a simple ichiran ramen lunch..
I used 1/2 packet ichiran ramen i bought in tokyo and added beef balls from china and some prawns.
so i boiled the beef balls first to cook thoroughly then added the ramen and the prawns.
we both like ramen al dente like pasta. the instructions was 2mins 30secs to 3mins…i did 2mins 15secs which i think is the standard michine timing at ramen restaurants in japan.
unlike pasta though, ramen needed to bite through but not soft…quite subtle i guess.
the beef balls from my relatives in shantou were just wonderful…not sure if can find any in singapore. my brother said there’s a place we can buy very good ones also.
very simple 1pax dish for wife, reduced carbs. lol!
