Generally I just pound the package a little to break up the noodles and then I pour the hot water right into the ramen. The plastic package is tough enough to hold it and then you can just eat it out of the plastic package.
Someone else must have already said this, but I didn't bother to read 24 pages to check.

I usually break the block of noodles into 4, then put it in the pot with half a chicken bullion cube (instead of the flavor packet) and a bit of soy sauce, and boil for 3 minutes. Then I add chili sauce, turn off the heat, and stir in an egg and a teaspoon of brown sugar.
Dammit now I'm hungry...

I love making ramen. Sadly, it takes 10-15 minutes to make and 3 minutes to eat. This is what I do. -Ramen -2 eggs boiled with the ramen -Pieces of Chicken -Nori -Blocks of beef -Corn -Broccoli -Several peppers. I prefer jalapeno. -Mushrooms -Garlic Sausages Now, the best part are the spices -Nanami Togarashi -White wine -Black Pepper -Sapphiron -Garlic Powder -Chili Powder -Grilled Chicken Seasoning -Spicy Pepper Seasoning -Vegetable seasoning -Parmesan Cheese
I even made money selling this stuff. Even my family paid me on a few occasions to use all those ingredients.
I rarely use every single ingreident listed above but when I do, it is usually for a special occasion like New Years or watching a finals I am hyped about. I will make this for the next Flash vs Jaedong Finals.
Korean ramen doesn't really need much since its spiced already. Green onion and eggs are basic to most koreans. Can't be left out. Some people like milk,cheese,ham,bacon and other random veggies. They're nice but extras.
I don't like japanese instant ramen. I only eat it cause its super cheap and still noodles. Real ramen is pretty good though. Pork ones are super greasy and needs pickles imo.

korean instant ramen is the best by FAR for instant ramen.
However, real proper japanese ramen is seriously mind-blowingly good. Seriously. If your mind has not literally exploded from eating japanese ramen, you haven't had good japanese ramen yet. My mind literally exploded a few times. Painful but lovely feeling.
The probability of Kim Carrier getting all those predictions wrong is similar to the probability Flash loses a TvT. Kim Carrier MUST BE a genius. His only big mistake... STORK.

some of my tips that I've acquired in art of cooking ramen. 1) dissolve powder first. (there is msg in it and I've been told soup gets better as it is boiled) 2) when you break the noodle piece to fit in a bowl, you break it with directions that noodles are aligned (or they will break off into millions of smallest pieces) 3) my magic ingredient is siracha sauce. beats any other spice. 4) 2 ways of cooking egg, you can dissolve it changing the soup base. or don't break it, does not effect soup. my fav method of using egg is dump whites in ramen and put yolk on another bowl, then just dump some noodles on it (without soup) and it tastes delicious ) 5) most important thing about cooking ramen is amount of water you put in imo. the worst is when you have too much. you just gotta figure out what volume makes the soup you like.
if you dunno which ramen to pick, Shin ramen or Nuguri are the shiznits.
