I have only one very good Asian market near me. "The Oriental Market" in Jacksonville, Florida.

I'll have to look for this there.

Thanks!

It's a good sized package, about 6x12x18 inches. Worth every penny!

Are packaged ramen noodles fried or just dried? I seem to recall they were fried, dried, then packaged.

I can understand the single serving concept, but if you're just going to throw away the flavor packet like Timothy, buying a bundle for 3 bucks seems like a good option.

The stock and meat from one chicken and various veg...I had lots of soup. And I could spice it anyway I liked for variation. Kept me in lunches and snacks for a bit...probably cost a total of $10 for all the different soups I made.

I couldn't agree more! I'll look for the large pack on my next trip to Jacksonville.

I'm going to look for them, too. I love a good noodle. And lots of people rave about these Ramen noodles.

Look is right, because I couldn't read the label on the package or the directions. Good thing I knew what Ramen was and looked like.

cheap, easy, fast, recipe, soup

Fast, easy, cheap and really tasty soup. This was a last minute soup I knocked together that ended up tasting really good and it was filling. No meat and it was pretty spicy. 1 16oz can of pinto beans (Drained) 1 package of Ramen Noodles (throw out the salt/msg in the little packages) 1 package of Kikkoman Seaweed Soup (Again, throw out the salt/msg in the little package) 1 tablespoon of Weber Roasted Garlic and Herb seasoning 1 tablespoon of Weber Smokey Mesquite seasoning 1/2 teaspoon of ground Coriander 1 tablespoon of dried parsley 4 cups of boiling water I put the Ramen noodles into the 4 cups of boiling water and boiled them for 2 minutes. I let the noodles sit in the microwave for an hour to absorb the water. Then I added everything else and brought it back to a boil. Let it sit for 30 minutes for the seasonings to meld and hydrate. Stirred it good and ate. Surprisingly tasty. Letting the noodles absorb the water is a great way to lose weight. They fill you up real fast and you're really only eating water, mostly. For lunch, it's a fine way to keep away from the more fattening meals. My Doc wants me to lose 50 pounds. I know it's either cut off a leg or eat better, so I decided to try eating better first....:ohmy::lol: 3 stars 1 reviews
