Recently at a conference, I got a chance to try stir fried ramen noodles as part of the lunch. I wasn't particularly blown away as the noodles were quite bland tasting. Since I had some dried ramen noodles at home, I decided to have a go at it to see if I could make it better. Unfortunately, I didn't have that much better luck and my noodles were gentle on the palate. I think these noodles are best served in soups as their soft slippery texture makes slurping that much more enjoyable.
Anyway, I'm posting up the recipe but I would advise that more spices are needed to jazz this dish up.
