RAMEN with Rice Cakes ❤

ABOUT RAMEN – As far as I know, ramen is a Japanese dish. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat or (occasionally) fish-based broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork (叉焼 chāshū), nori (dried seaweed), menma, and scallions. Nearly every region in Japan has its own variation of ramen.

In Korea, ramen is called ramyeon (라면 / 拉麺). There are different varieties, such as kimchi-flavored ramyeon. While usually served with vegetables such as carrots and green onions, or eggs, some restaurants serve variations of ramyeon containing additional ingredients such as dumplings, tteok, or cheese as topping

  1. Korean cooking is quite different than what I had expected. I’ve made Korean barbecued beef several times and it is a real treat. The meat is sliced very thin and marinates in a special sauce for hours in the refrigerator before cooking quickly over a very high heat. Indescribably delicious! (I believe one of the ingredients in the sauce is Korean pear which helps with tenderizing and giving great flavor. And ginger, which is so great in a dish like that!)

  2. Mmmmh! Mouth-watering…
    I started my Korean cuisine experience with Kimchi….it was a bumpy start. But the Korean kitchen has to offer so much more. The BBQ is a highlight, of course.
    In general, I love the Asian cuisine because of the emphasis on quality and freshness…and admire the aesthetic presentation very much.

  3. Yes, I completely agree with you! (Sometimes with what you might call “typical American cuisine” I think it’s easily identifiable by the colors on the plate: white, yellow and brown. Not at all colorful like a stir fry using fresh veggies from the garden!)

  4. I am sure that the American is rich…there are so many cultures merged in your country. Maybe, it is all about avoiding restaurant franchises /chains with standardized menu of industrial food.

  5. A preferred meal for the average American child is chicken nuggets and French fried potatoes. (Both big money makers for the food industry.) The only vegetable that many American children will eat is corn. (Sometimes mashed potatoes.) Our diet is killing us and our children too. Really sad. My chickens eat better than the average American child. This morning they had a beautiful breakfast salad of rainbow Swiss chard and shredded carrots. Oops! I forgot to add the chopped apple! Will need to remedy that!

  6. You are the best Dad4Gracie and her siblings, they can have.
    It all depends on the parents who could introduce a greater variety of food.
    But I`ve heard that fresh food is quite expensive in the States….maybe, the school`s cafeteria can be of help?
