What is the best temperature to cook noodles?

To cook noodles and make them get soft, what is the best temperature?
I mean instant noodles, ramen. 80C, 90C?

Boil your water/stock/broth, pour it into a bowl - add noodles. Cover, let stand for 2 or 3 min.

All the ones I've had this is what you do... you are not 'cooking' them, just softening.

and Hi and Welcome to DC wynhgy!

oh oh, not true, just remembered there was one where I boiled the broth on the stove, added the noodles and simmered for 2or 3 min.

Water boils at 100 degrees Celsius. I'd go with that and make adjustments for elevation.

Welcome to DC!

Exactly! Besides, no one is going to get liquid water higher than 100C without some fancy finagling. It evaporates.

You don’t need to know the temp of the water to cook ramen. Heat the water until it’s very hot and little bubbles start forming.

Then add the ramen. You don’t need to use boiling water, just very hot water.

You don’t need to cook ramen. You just rehydrate it
