So time to fill you guys in on some background. I finally was able to go to Ranch 99 (asian supermarket, although mostly chinese) yesterday. I was going to get ingredients for dukbokki, but when I walked in I reached into my pocket and... no wallet. And I did not want to ride my bike back. But I had a buck, so I bought Shin ramyeon. So I went home, and for lunch, I prepared it. I'll go through my preparation and mistakes.
1) Herpderp, try to open package. Then I remember that most korean foods on the side. Figured that one out sorta quick >.>
2) Start to boil water. Then go to look for tuna. But alas, even though my family always has tuna, we didn't. I should have checked. but oh well.
3) Get egg nice and ready to be added to mixture.
4) Add a bit less water than directions call for.
5) Insert Ramyeon. Try to dump spice package in. But i"m a dumbtard.
6) The steam causes the spices to clump, so I have to use some water to get it off.
7)Cook for a bit less time than is called for, again per recommendations in ramen thread.
8) Take off heat, add egg.
9) Add fresh green onion.
10) Realize that I don't have a bowl large enough to contain the tastiness.
11) Realize the entire house smells tasty
12)Dump into bowl, then eat, then dump more in. Then I realize I should take a picture so I do.
IT"S SO TASTY OMNOMNOMNOMNOM WHY WOULD ANYONE HAVE THOSE STUPID CHICKEN ONES
I do have more questions though. Tomorrow I talked to my mom and i"ll be preparing dukbokki for dinner. Hells yeah. Also will be making deep fried dough thingies Ginger flavored. Syrup covered, pretty tasty.
But, the problem lies with kimchi. Spica's excellent korean cooking advice lends me to believe that all the stuff at ranch 99 is either too old or sucks. I guess I could make my own, but meh. Any advice for doing that? I don't want to have to go into Oakland or San Jose :/
Also need gochujang, and yeah.
Summary: Will buy more stuff, blog more.
But I decided to ladder today. Look what happened after the ramen consumption
