Source for Ramen Noodles (not soup or instant) on Long Island?

I'm thinking of making home-made ramen; I'll make the broth and fixings, but I'm not up for making the noodles themselves. Does anyone know if H and Y market in Plainview or Oriental Grocery in Stony Brook (or anywhere else) carries the just the ramen noodles - fresh, frozen or dried?

And if so, any brand in particular that you prefer?

  1. Yes I've buy them often in Stony Brook H&Y advertises them .I've also buy them in V&T in Hempstead which buy the way has a pretty decent Chinese bakery and sells roast ducks 'pork and chicken They have a whole wall of noodles.Years back they housed a Walbaums in that store space so its well stocked. I just wish they advertized.

    1. I had a hard time finding plain ramen noodles at H&Y, but technically you could take a package of instant and just use the noodle brick, discarding the the spice packets. I have to admit, when I'm searching for Asian ingredients at H&Y, I'm having a hard time since I don't read characters, so I might have just overlooked them.
      I made ramen at home once. It was delicious. I ended up using Lo Mein purchased from Whole Foods, which I recommend. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the brand though.
      Nothing wrong with using Lo Mein! David Chang used to use Lo Mein noodles before he started making his own.
