I've been on a big ramen kick lately. Partly because I got the Momofuku cookbook over Christmas, and partly because ramen is great 'cheap eats'.
My ramen today:
1-2 tbsp miso (red)
1 tbsp ginger-scallion sauce (from Momofuku)
1/2 package of ramen
3-4 slices of pork belly
1 sheet of nori
I wish I could get pix from my phone to the blog at work, b/c I've always felt that a "bowl of noodles with a bunch of stuff on it" photographs well.
I was going to post a stock photo, but when I googled, I didn't find good pix, but I did find this page, billing itself as the "Official Ramen Homepage" (I don't believe him, though), and this inspiring article from the NY Times travel section, which makes me want to go loaf around Japan, eating noodles.
