    @Kir32:  I eat it in an Asian salad… Raw ramen noodles, cabbage, almonds, etc. with a tangy dressing. YUM.

    Doesn’t draining the water make it really salty?

    I drain most of the water, but not completely… I maybe leave 2-3 ounces to make a little broth, but it’s not at all soupy.

    @Kir32:  I like hot ramen as a soup, but I love cold ramen as pasta. Regardless the flavor goes in before any draining. Far too salty otherwise.

    Soup usually. The cold version is good in the summer though.

    @Kir32:  Yepp. It’s great for going to work. Cook it beforehand, drain all but a little of it, then pack it and go. Leave it in the fridge till lunch and it’s awesome.

    @Kir32:  I eat it like they do in Japan, with the soup along with other things. In fact I just had it tonight with egg, spinach, mung bean sprouts and green onions. And I slurp when I eat them (to eat them any other way is rude in Japan).

    @Kir32:  i never saw anybody cook ramen until I went to college. When I was growing up we would break it up in a plastic bag and pour the seasoning packet on it, shake it up and eat it like that! I think my dad was just laZy… Now I always eat it as pasta with a scrambled egg and the rooster hot sauce, no seasoning packet!

    I had a friend who just used to eat the noodles raw, straight out of the package.
