For a majority of college students, instant ramen noodles are a dietary staple. But how absolutely delicious can people make instant ramen? 4 teams took up this challenge by participating in JCBC’s Iron Chef: Ramen Edition. Each team had a limited budget of $25 and was given stringent time constraints. The audience and 3 judges voted for their favorite creations, taking into consideration the taste, creativity and presentation of each dish.
Here were the results (highest ranked to lowest):
Traditional Ramen: The Noodlers recipe was by far the favorite. It stood out because of its savory broth.
Curry Ramen: Team Sugoi created a curry ramen that included carrots, mushroom and beef.
Tom Yum Ramen: this hot and sour soup had an unforgettable taste with lemongrass and lime. Also notable for being the only vegetarian option
Tomato Ramen: The Winners Team used a recipe that included chunks of tomato and cheese to create a dish that is not quite ramen and not quite spaghetti.
Everyone had loads of fun and left with happy tummies.
