Best store brand ramen (noodles, not stock)
I've been making and mostly Udon soups lately and want to switch to ramen. Is there a brand I can pick up at T&T that stands out above the rest? If it's somewhere else, that's fine. I'm just hoping for T&T because of the Cherry St. location convenience.
I'm interested in the noodles, not the broth mix.
For dry noodles I usually buy ones made from Taiwan such as Wu-Mu brand. It comes in a big box with 3 different width sizes - thin, medium or wide. I will also opt for frozen fresh noodles made from Korea such as Chiropigang brand ( the logo with a little guy with a hat).
My preference is for something slightly chewy and has that hand-made feel and texture, not too thin (I usually go for the medium width one for the ease of cooking). For soup noodles if you are starting from scratch often you need to cook the noodles then dump the water it is cooked in to avoid too much starch in the soup. Then I will put it in my stock and add stuff to it.
All these are readily available in all major Asian grocers - not sure if you are just looking for ramen but I sometimes find ramen reminds me too much of instant noodles!
