Making Gourmet Ramyun!

Growing up, I remember having my fair share of instant noodles. It was nothing fancy, just a Cup-O-Noodles that I would pour in some water and nuke in the microwave to speed up the cooking process. I know it wasn’t the healthiest of meals, but DAMN – they tasted good!

Since coming to Korea, I have been amazed at the number of varieties of ramyun found in stores. I mean, look at the photo above. Here is the scene from my local EMart, where the entire center aisle is nothing my instant noodle goodness!

This month on The Korea Blog, I’m starting a new series about making Korean food at home. Since ramyun is probably the number one meal most learn to make, I thought I would spice it up a little and make a gourmet ramyun version. You can read about how I did so here.

This video was show entirely with the GoPro Hero2 using a pair of new external mics. As time progresses, I think I’ll be using these small cameras more and more, since they are easy to carry, provide great audio at close distances, and have a great wide-angle of view.

What do you think? What’s the best way to make ramyun at home? how do you take the ordinary and make it spectacular?
