I was craving Shin Ramyun the other day. If you are unfamiliar with Shin Ramyun, it is very spicy Korean instant noodles. Very spicy!
I was actually surprised to have this craving as I have never eaten a whole bowl of it before. In fact, I've never made a bowl for myself ever. I usually just pilfer noodles from my husband when he eats it. I typically eat one or two bites and give up because it's too pika for me, that is, it's too spicy. Nonetheless, I wanted a bowl to myself for lunch.
So I busted out a pot and it was on! I didn't just make Shin Ramyun, I made souped up Shin Ramyun. (Oh yes I did just write 'souped' up Shin Ramyun.)
It was so pika I had to take a sip of cold milk after every couple of bites. I couldn't finish the bowl, but I came very close.
Shin Ramyun with onions, carrots, sugar snap peas, mushrooms, water chestnuts, garlic, radishes, hot dogs, soy sauce, lime, and cilantro. It was so good! And pika! (Also great in Shin Ramyun and other instant ramen: napa cabbage.) So good and so pika!
