Ramen was said to be one of the most overdone food trends of 2014. But like most trends, Utah is 3-5 years behind, and we didn't catch the Ramen wave. I also have a special affinity to Ramen, growing up in Hawaii. Sure Ramen is sold internationally, but not unlike the favorite Hawaiian canned meat Spam, Ramen is different in Hawaii.
Tonight I made homemade Ramen. I made the noodles, and the Hodashi granules added some deliciousness.
But if I'm honest, it did not taste like Ramen. It tasted like a really yummy Japanese soup. It's like mac & cheese, homemade macaroni and cheese is an uncontested winner, but sometimes you just crave the boxed Kraft kind.
Conclusion: next time I'm craving Ramen, I'm just gonna pull out the box.
