Ramen Reprise: How to Make Healthy Instant Noodles at Home

A couple months back, the Chile Underground declared Asian Noodles Month; it was an instant hit. (Don’t groan! Okay, go ahead, you need it.) However, some visitors were a little concerned that some of the instant noodle varieties weren’t very healthy. While I think they’re better than certain fast food meals I could name […]

Goodbye Instant Noodles, Hello Spicy Italian

The end of Asian Noodles Month is upon us. Good thing it doesn’t weigh too much! Sorry, couldn’t control myself; I’ll keep my day job for now…

It’s been a fine inaugural month for an event that I hope to repeat next year, bigger and better. If you have any ideas how to improve the […]

Getting Into Hot Water for Instant Noodles

There are three fundamental ways to heat water hot enough for instant noodles. (I’m setting aside using more sophisticated equipment, such as the Large Hadron Collider, which would most certainly heat your water. The lead underpants requirement’s a bit bothersome with that method.) Electric Kettle, Microwave Oven, and Ordinary Heat Source.

Asian Noodles Month Continues

Instant Noodles Will be Right Back

Asian Noodles Month isn’t even half over yet, and I know you’re just dying for more information on your favorite tasty quick snack. Well, there will be more to come. Later, though. At the moment, other topics simply beckon more strongly.

Actually, that’s a polite way of saying there’s way too much going on, and I’m […]

Instant Noodles: Gear and Gadgets Galore

I once heard that you eat first with your eyes. Sounds rather messy to me if you’re a literalist; but otherwise it seems it’s true. (Me, I eat first with my nose. Even after years in chem labs I can still enjoy the aromas of fine vittles being prepared.) One of the small challenges […]

Instant Noodles: Paldo Hot & Spicy Yukejang Noodles

Today for lunch I tried something different. Oh, I’m still working through my new collection of instant noodles! I had never, ever tried Korean instant noodles before, though. One of the bowls I grabbed on my recent run through the MT Supermarket was Paldo’s Hot & Spicy Noodle, Yukejang style.

Yukejang has many alternative spellings: […]
