Introduction: The Ramen Bar

Picture of The Ramen Bar

If you've ever gotten tired or annoyed of the time involved in making ramen noodles just the way you like them or you don't like having all that extra broth, or if you just don't want to deal with the water and broth to begin with. I introduce to you; The Ramen Bar

I give credit to benstern for giving me the idea. I merely just beat him to making an instructable about it. Also it's my first one. I hope you like it.

Step 1: The Separation

The first step is simple; open the bag, dispose of the broken pieces of noodles (I eat them).

Step 2: Make It Adhesive-like

Now in order for our bar to hold our favorite flavor, in this case oriental, we must get it wet. Just run it under the water for no more than 5 seconds. All you need to do is get one side wet. The more water that gets to the noodles the more soggy it will become.

Also we don't want too much water making our noodles soggy, so we'll let the extra water spill off.

Step 3: Now We Apply Our MSG Filled Yummy-ness

I don't care if you feel like pouring the contents of the flavor packet or sprinkling evenly over the wet surface. Simple enough.

Step 4: OOPS!

So the packet has too much of our yummy flavor. Not a big problem, no need to fret! Just tap the bar over a garbage can to knock off the extra powder.

Step 5: Enjoy!

Now you have your portable Ramen Bar. Now you can enjoy Ramen when you go walking or have a lack of a heating source.

Actually what i would do is crush the noodles add the packet of "flavoring" and squeeze in some lime! :D! man is that delicious! so now it isn't so dry and gives it that lemony taste i crave

Dark1lives (author)2009-09-23

Lol yea i love doing this

09 monk (author)2009-07-09

u just crush it up. put the stuff in. shake it. the eat it.

GorillazMiko (author)2007-11-19

I always do this, it's delicious! And i see your homework.. is that algebra? (I'm in algebra)

CameronSS (author)GorillazMiko2007-11-19

I see assorted chemical formulas...It's some sort of chemistry class.

GorillazMiko (author)CameronSS2007-11-20

That's a pretty high grade, around 11-12th grade?

CameronSS (author)GorillazMiko2007-11-20

Not always...At my school, I can take either Chemistry or AP Chemistry, and I'm a sophomore.

GorillazMiko (author)CameronSS2007-11-20

Well thats YOUR SCHOOL haha. Just kidding. :-o Sophomores hate 8th graders! RUN!! Just kidding :-)

i did that in eighth gradeeeeee xD

No, that's first semester chem homework. Sadly neither chem class I took taught me anything about ramen... Perhaps my engineering course tho... Mass transport anyone?

CameronSS (author)GorillazMiko2007-11-20

I do? I didn't know that. I guess it depends on the eighth grader...

crankyjew (author)CameronSS2007-11-20

indeed it does.

You, my dear sir, (/maam), have the best name ever.

ah, why thank you, that isnt a comment one hears every day. you must share my love of muffins, then?

iKill (author)GorillazMiko2007-11-19

notice how he wrote H2O i would guess either 9th grade intro to physical science or 10th grade bio (ive had both and both involve the use of chemical compounds that simple)

GorillazMiko (author)iKill2007-11-19

Yeah you're right. My homework is close to this, I'm in 8th grade.

bassmasta1010 (author)2009-03-27

for a snack me and my friends usually just break it up add the flavoring and shake it up there done eat away

T3h_Muffinator (author)2007-11-20

Eew... Although... Tasty! I prefer to take one slab of ramen, crunch it up, and put it in a bowl of miso soup. Forget the flavor packet, Miso FTW!

pmac93 (author)T3h_Muffinator2008-01-17

miso FTW: miso five times worse! i hate miso soup but love ramen

wolf555hound (author)pmac932009-01-20

lol, this is almost a year apart.... but i like how to changed FTW to five time... you know what you wrote. When will the awesome Instructable-ness rub off onto me??

biocrud (author)2009-01-04

Where I'm from, we call these "Ghetto Cookies". :-)

conrad2468 (author)2008-08-27

GREAT!!! i am going to put my chinese gut bomb on here! i have friggin 99 uses for ramen noodles

aetherguy881 (author)conrad24682008-08-27

It's good to know that people are still finding this helpful!

chanhyo (author)2008-05-18

you might be surprised to know how many "alternative ramen cooking method" exists. When I was little, i used to crush ramen noodle, garnish with MSG, eat as a snack..

oddblob (author)2008-05-16

'oriental flavour' that made me laugh so hard . hehe small chinese children, powdered? much love:D

thisxisxstephanie (author)2008-05-15

Heh when I was little, this is how I loved to eat my ramen... Just thinking about it takes me back lol!

ac1D (author)2007-11-19

aetherguy881 (author)ac1D2008-01-18

No It's in my dorm, that's the sink that's in the room. The bathroom is to the left of the trashcan. Close tho...

SlothOnSpeed (author)ac1D2007-11-23

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who noticed.

Nova_Logic (author)2007-12-29

wtf is this eating a hard bar of noodles with water and powder on top wat do u eat it like a cruch bar or somthin thats distusting, no offense

nagutron (author)2007-12-07

I gave this Instructable a positive rating just because it's so effing gross.

Pyrowuzzup (author)2007-11-22

lol i used to just eat the noodles when i was younger. then i would lick out all the flavor powder

rockyt (author)2007-11-20

I like my ramen soupy, peppery and with crackers and lots of tobasco. The spicier the better.

Rockerx (author)rockyt2007-11-20

go spicy!!!!!!

Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)2007-11-20

Last time I had ramen it came with a prize in the bag: maggots! never had ramen again.

_diyMATT (author)Spl1nt3rC3ll2007-11-20

Same happened to me. I didn't notice them until they where in the water. If I was not paying attention they could easily be mistaken for broken Ramen bits. makes me uncomfortable just thing about it.

Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)_diyMATT2007-11-20

I only noticed when I looked to see if the water started boiling. Kinda did a double take before I realised what those floating things were...

!Andrew_Modder! (author)2007-11-20

:-O, thats honestly kinda different. Persionally, (if i cant cook it) i like to break the noodles off and eat them that way and stick my finger in the seasoning for flavor.. Also this is kind of random>> iv noticed pepsi is not good to drink with ramen for some reason :-\ lol!

bleachworthy (author)2007-11-19

oh lord... why, oh why must you curse this planet with ramen?

drips (author)bleachworthy2007-11-20

You must be talking about Maruchan & Top Ramen, cuz authentic ramen iz the shizz. So you just munch on the crunch of the uncooked noodles? Hmmm. Kids these days...

benstern (author)2007-11-19

Pfft I told him about this. I been doing this for years!

pyro13 (author)2007-11-19

Me and my best friends go camping all the time and use this as a quick, Lightweight, and easy staple food. Great instructalbe!

Bongmaster (author)2007-11-19

or you can only just cover them in boiling water, let them sit with a plate over the bowl 1st for a while, microwave them for 2 minits on full (800 watt) ,.then eat them with my chopsticks :P (
and they wont have much liquid to deal with :)

Erik Lindemann (author)2007-11-19

That reminds me. I'm out of Ramen... Also, I find this as a very good way to eat, I used to do this when I didn't have time to make breakfast. Now I wait the 3+ minutes for the water to boil and cook the noodles. Not too much of a sacrifice for some gut renchingly horrendous-for-you food. But it's so good.
