    Is Ramen basically instant noodles in America?
    I mean, I never see Ramen in markets over here and when you search it you get Asian ramen dishes that no American Student is ever going to cook.

    When I mean Instant Noodles, I mean something like this

    Yes this is a serious question.

    Yes, They're a Chinese dish that in America (and Japan, but we don't talk about that) are dried and sold cheap with packages of flavoring inside.

    That said, what you have in your picture is likely dried pasta rather than dried ramen.

    I know it's Asian and what it is but when you see Americans students say ramen, I couldn't see them cooking up something like this.

    Why don't you just say noodles

    Edit: FUCKING TECHNICAL TERMS, IT'S NOODLES, FUCK DRIED PASTA.

    Oh gawd, I want some instant noodles now.

    Luckily it's almost Fall, so I'll start stocking up on them soon.

    How I cook mine.

    Instant bowl type:
    1) Microwave water
    2) Put water in it
    3) Close it for X minutes
    4) Add flavouring
    5) Stir massively
    6) ????
    7) PROFIT!!! EAT!!!

    Noodles type:
    1) Boil water into pan
    2) Add ramen
    3) Add wurstel
    4) Wait and stir
    5) Get them into bowl
    6) Add flavouring
    7) Stir massively
    8) EAT IT WHILE FREAKING HOT.

    I just do it for differentiation. Y'know, like Pasta and Ramen. They taste extremely different and are cooked differently, but at the base, before anything is added, are the same.

    And that's basically it, if someone asks me what I want to eat and I say noodles (when I mean ramen), I don't want saucy seasoned noodles, I want my broth. I WANT MY BROTH, DANGIT!

    Funny how Japan's most known (and definitely the best) instant ramen is called Cup Noodles (Kappu Nuudoru). Oh and also with the craziest commercial.

    I have some Ramen in my cupboard. Check tesco's world foods bit. My local one had a load of them sitting there. SuperNoodles etc. suck in comparison. Not enough flavour and no veg to be seen.
    THey are basically instant noodles but in a soup. Ramen is noodles in soup therfore Instant Noodles in soup=Instant Ramen.

    Are you kidding

    Cook them
    Leave them to stand for about a minute
    Shove them on toast, under the grill with cheese
    Sex awaits.

    Microwave noodles and water for three minutes,
    stir
    microwave again for two more minutes
    drain water
    add flavor packet (Shrimp. Always shrimp.)
    add minced onion, or tartar sauce
    add Worcestershire sauce
    enjoy

    Occasionally I'll also add sriracha sauce.
