So I was recently told something that turned my world upsidedown, Ramen is supposed to be drained and eaten without the water?!

I have grown up eating Ramen as soup, so this is a huge revelation to me as I had always eaten the broth (and will continue to do so). So, how does everyone eat their Ramen?!

You can eat it either way. I always drain it and eat it as noodles though. I believe the instructions (at least on most) tell you to make it as soup.

Ditto, I cook it as usual then drain and just eat the noodles, hopefully without draining too much flavor from the seasoning.

PS-I only eat Maruchan Ramen.

I save the seasoning until after I drain it, to preserve the flavor...I only use a half packet or less that way as well.

When I make it in the microwave I just eat it as soup. There are some where you are suppose to drain the water and eat as noodles. A friend of mine eats lots of the Korean Ramen and that's how he eats it all the time. Another friend of mine cracks an egg and tomatoe into it. She also makes it over the stove.

Just sounds too fancy for something I buy because it's cheap, quick and delicious.

When I want good Ramen I go to a Japanese and they serve it as soup. There is one that is very good in Orange County (Huntington Beach), if anyone is in the area, named Shin Shen. It's really good but the wait is pretty long at times.

You can, but there's no "supposed to" about it. Noodles are eaten in soup in every Asian country.

Sometimes i just open the packet and eat the Noodle crunch bar raw.

Cooked i prefer Eggs mixed in, with a little water poured out. Always got to try and find the right balance. Maybe 40/60 water.

I usually eat as a soup but when I was a kid I would boil drain water then melt butter over it and mix in the flavor. I recently tried this and do not recommend this version any more.

World's best Ramen recipe... clinically proven to keep a person alive

take 1 pack of oriental ramen and 1 pack of spicy chili ramen, remove noodles and boil in water. Add salt and one table spoon of cooking oil (seseme oil is great if you can get it)

hard-boil 1 egg (can be done in same water as noodles if you are short on space)

take desired amount of frozen or canned vegetables, add to noodles and water. Carrots, peas, sna peas, lima beans, chickpeas, or whatever you got.

Remove noodles from water.

remove cooked egg from water. peel and smash. then mix.

For a more filling meal, add a can of tuna.


Season to taste with Louisiana hot Sauce, soy sauce, butter, and dirty ramen powders.

personally i prefer the cup ramen just cause IMO its easier.

BUT when i do eat the packet i put the raw noodles in a bowl with water and microwave till ready than i strain the water out and put shredded cheese into it.

mix around until the cheese is melted and enjoy

Delicious

I do it the exact same way. Most of the time I add vegetables like broccoli or grean beans. Try it sometime if you haven't. I do the frozen variety and cook it right with the noodles.

I've been drunk and had Ramen too many times. In other words, I *don't* eat Ramen anymore *UNLESS*...

The noodles are mixed in to Asian Slaw.

I drain almost all the water out of mine. Just leave a little bit in it enough to be able to mix the packet in and not be clumpy.... The water takes away most the flavor. I like them with a strong flavor.

Back in the day, I was known to jack an extra packet of seasoning out of one of the remaining bags of Ramen. I was *that* guy.

Put the noodles in a bowl of water. microwave it, drain a little water so that its just above the noodles. add packet of seasoning.

Make a PB and J sandwich and dip it in!

In jail you can add the noodles with cheese into a trash bag filled with hot water.
Shake,then pour out.


My brother was only in jail a few hours and some how he managed to learn that first thing.

My 15 yr old daughter and her friend eat them raw. I dont get that...right outa the bag. I prefer soup and had never thought about draining the water ...I always add hotsauce. Feels good to sometimes be satisfied by a meal that costs 33 cents.
You can also never go wrong throwing in leftover roast beef or roasted chicken....

ok first off..i'm asian..so this is how i do it..i boil the noodle..take one egg and break it into the boilin water,add chopped beef into the pot..let it all boil into goodness..take the seasoning package and open it into the bowl,not the pot..take the pot pour into the bowl..top it off with green onion..and BAM..there you have it..and i don't eat Ramen..i eat the instant noodle from the oriental store..you get bout 30 packs for $8-10 bucks..so it's bout the same price as Ramen noodle..but it tastes alot better..i'm tell ya'll to find your closest oriental store..go in there and look for a noodle brand call "Mama"..and they should have a bunch of noodle out of the box,so you know what kind you're buying and what box to look for...

Neither have I. I never realized that Ramen noodles were an American thing (aside from the phenom it is in Asia), I always thought it was the Western world's answer to a quick noodle fix.
