I also use Maruchan, and I drain it, then add the flavor pack and however much water is needed to get the right consistency.

When I was a kid I ate almost exclusively Samyang ramen. Now I can't stand them. The only reference I've found to the name is a Korean ramen noodle brand. I'm not sure who made these, and I only ever saw them in Western family/associated foods stores.

I use a mix of Top ramen and Maruchan personally (whichever is on sale this week.) I've also tried the Campbells ramen (I don't think they make it anymore,) the Smack ramen, walmart GV ramen, and a wide assortment of more expensive ramens from the oriental food store. I probably cook them the least of anyone, I pull it out when it's still mostly recognizable as a ramen brick, right as the noodles start seperating. I actually drain them completely, and put the flavoring packet with 3-4 tablespoons of water in the bowl. The time this takes differs by brand of ramen. Maruchan seems to cook much faster, about a minute and a half, while top ramen is a little closer to 2 minutes.

I've moved away from top ramen now that they've cancelled the Sesame chicken flavor. :(

On a sidenote, shortly after they cancelled that I started keeping a bottle of sesame oil for my ramen noodles...

My old recipe when I was a teenager:

Crushed ramen. Take 1 bag of Samyang chicken or beef, stomp on it till you have little noodle fragments and put the fragments in a bowl. Smooth out/flatten top. Sprinkle flavoring packet on it, then fill with just enough water so that it's even with the top of the noodles. Microwave for 1-1.5 minutes. Makes it pretty heavily flavored, and most of the water boils off.

Another poll question on Ramen:

Do you rinse your cooked noodles?

Personally, I do, it gets rid of all the wax and allows the flavors to come through. (it's amazing how cloudy the water is after heating up the noodles)

I lived in Hawaii so it's Saimin, but it's really the same thing. You can get it at McDonalds over there. And it doesn't matter which brand, I will eat any and all be it in a packet, cup, or bowl (technicly, saimin noodles have egg while ramen noodles do not, but I don't think anyone cares). The best ones are the asian ones with lots of sesame oil and spices. (just go to your local asian grocery store and buy one of every brand that they carry).

I always use the full amount of water, add the flavor packets, oil, garnish whatever before boiling, and I always try to garnish.

Just like when making cocktails, always garnish! Put in bits of shrimp, char siu, lettuce or cabbage, fish cake, carrots, Spam, whatever. In a pinch I have used beef jerky (let it soak for a couple of minutes or add it before you boil).

Extra large coffee cup, about 2/3rd full of water. Nuke it till it's good and hot. Add the flavor packet and then the noodles. Stir until the noodles are soft.

Chicken flavor only because I'm boring, Maruchan only because that's what the Dollar General down the street carries.

If I'm feeling less boring I add some cooked chicken.
