Rice And Beans

The culinary adventures of a New Yorker and a New Mexican.
We saw a wonderful post on Umamimart about his recreation of the ramen burger in New York:
Motoism - Ramen Burger
He used noodles from Sun Noodles, which are a family company that makes noodles for Momofuku, Segataya, and many other top ramen joints in the US.

Well, no ramen burger this week (it will be done!), but we had to try Sun Noodles. It was quite easy to find in our local Japanese grocery stores, and it had the simplest packaging.
This here is their Tantanmen. We used chicken broth instead of water with their sauce packet, and added nori, a poached egg, scallions, spinach, and shiitake. It was mind-blowingly good for homemade ramen. We’re still going out for tonkotsu, but this makes many lesser ramen joints irrelevant.
