I made my own version of ramen once, and of course since my husband grew up in the Land of Ramen, I expected he wouldn't like my ramen. I don't remember why he suddenly wanted to taste my ramen that night, but when he tasted it, he said it was really delicious. He asked if I cooked a lot because, although he had just eaten a full dinner, he wanted to eat my ramen too. However, he didn't order a serving, so I cooked for only one. But seeing him very excited to eat MY cooking (yes, it's one of the greatest feeling when his eyes spark, asking for more of my cooking), I said the usual lie-- "I'm quite full/I didn't really want to eat" (plus some more reasoning so that he'll believe that I'm totally fine if he eats it). So he ended up eating mine and I had bread for dinner instead. hahahaha
My stomach felt more full while watching him enjoy my cooking than when I eat my own cooking, so, I didn't actually lie, did I? ^_^
Egg noodles are normally used for ramen. But ever since I was born, I have never benn a fan of egg. So I've tried using different kinds of noodles-- eggless noodles, vermicelli noodles, spaghetti. For me, they all tasted much better than egg noodles! Try it for yourselves!
A vegetarian for 12 years and a kitchen warrior since I moved in to Japan, my favorite battle has been winning over my husband's interestingly complicated taste buds.
