    Instant Noodles

    After the popularity of runaway success thread 'Cracking an Egg' comes the sequel 'Instant Noodles', where CW members can take the opportunity to discuss their tips and techniques on cooking another cheap home favourite. What's your favourite brand? Are you a soup or no soup noodle fan? What vegies and other items do you add to the mix?

    Me personally, I'm a soup in man. People who drain out the water are most definitely of questionable character in my opinion, though I must admit I'm not a fan of too much soup diluting the flavour either. Diced onions are a winning addition to any flavour too, especially if you fry them first. Sometimes a bit of cabbage or broccoli adds a bit of green to the salty deliciousness as well. Today I added Korean rice cake for a bit of extra volume.

    As for brands, I'm not particularly fussy. Anything other than the garbage generic flavours they sell at supermarkets is usually good, and by generic I mean the Maggi/Fantastic brands that just add chicken or beef stock to a starchy baked noodle cake. In Australia I'm always partial to the Trident Hot n' Spicy Thai/ Laksa or Mi Goreng brands. Here in Korea though anything goes, it's very rare to find a disappointing brand of instant noodle.

    I hope to hear many jovial noodle related stories from all of our Commonwealth friends, hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do.

    I eat instant noodles usually. I prefer Top Ramen brand. I am a vegetarian also and I quite like Maggi also. Noodles are messy to eat outside so I tend to eat it at home only.

    It is light on the stomach
    Economy of time

    Demerits
    It is not really good for health
    it is not good for eating outside

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Love noodles. My friend brought some brand from South East Asia a while back which was very tasty. In fact I will have Maggi today.

    I used to really love the old Maggi ones, but then they replaced them with 'Extra Delicious', which was misleadingly named.

    Apparently they're secretly phasing the old recipes back in though. So there's hope for me yet.

    Love the Mi Goreg range, which I eat soupless. For Maggi, Fantastic etc. I generally leave the soup in.

    I generally also like mine a little undercooked and dry.

    I miss Japanese instant noodles (instant ramen). The NZ ones just aren't the same. Funnily enough, I was never a big instant ramen eater in Japan. I suppose you don't know what you got until it's gone.

    Mi Goreng man myself. Generally soup out, so I guess this means that Casson won't want to snuggle anymore.

    But you couldn't get Kare Udon on the island I was at. Trips to Takamatsu were special for me for that reason - not because I got to travel and get away from the Shodoshima - but because the port supermarket sold my favourite noodles.
