Quit your Ramen Snobbin
This is for all you healthy Ramen fanatics. When I get instant ramen, it is usually Maruchan. The Maruchan Ramen was the first meal I ever learned and taught myself how to prepare for myself. When I found out this new “talent”, I did made it for myself EVERYDAY for lunch (partly because I was so damn proud). Nowadays, I have Maruchan ramen because I am broke AND because it is nostalgic. When I need a little comfort and ego-boost, I honestly get ramen. Then I doctor the MSG noodles with stuff like egg, soy sauce, maybe cilantro, maybe fish sauce… maybe a little jameson… maybe hello kitty tears…
Whatever, let’s look at the hoity toity-I’m-too-good-for-the-bottom-shelf-healthy-farm-to-youtube-glutten-free-touch-your-toes Millet and Brown Rice Ramen. This was a tiny bag, like fit in my ear small and I AM SMALL!
I cooked this stuff up wondering if maybe this stuff was tasty and healthy. If it was, maybe I would not be so hard on yuppy snobbin ramen chumps with their bikes and beards.
The flavor was definitely salty mushroomed flavor with sea weeds, not bad. There was not a huge strong flavor, but not subtle like some miso soups. Actually the miso part was not very prominent. The noodles were not chewy or very toothsome. They were wheat-y and tender probably due to the very cooked-ness versus al dente (which was my fault).
Overall I was not impressed, but not disappointed. Just underwhelmed.
The round up:
Did I finish it? Yes
Would I buy it again? No
Would I recommend it? No
Notes: I was bored the whole time.
