Another post-drinking ramen stop. This stuff was decent, and... Japanese-level spicy. So barely at all. My wife got the pork broth, which I'll definitely get next time we go there, assuming I'm not too drunk to order the right thing. Again.

Looks good!

But, "Japanese-level spicy" being not that spicy? Obviously you need to get Level 10 at Cocos Ichibanya Curry House.

I also know a good tsukemen place that makes a nicely spicy broth... but these are really exceptions to the rule.

The closest large market had the Pantai crab paste and Yeo brand laksa paste....and yes the Pantai is way more expensive because it has 60% crab listed. Grabbed a pack of fresh somen noodles and a larger package of the coconut cream powder too.

 

CRAP!!!!....i forgot the tau pok!!!!!!

I can't get that paste here, the Pantai says 50% extract that I bought.

 

We just ate Alfredo shrimp with fettuccine but I just sampled because I'm playing with another broth and will make a curry shrimp dish. Results later.

Yep! That's the chain. Thing is, some of them specialize in ramen and some tsukemen (dipping noodles). The tsukemen is the one I really love, but I'm having a hard time finding the location I went to. Anyway, they're probably fairly standardized, so it's likely to be one of the better noodle experiences here for spicy food lovers.

The market did have another Pantai crab paste. The jar had a little different label than the one i got. It was 50% crab iirc. I got a 7oz jar of the 60%. It was over $5 which i thought was high. They had a larger jar in the $10 range too.

 

Their website does not list ingredients....It just calls the other one (formula 2)

I followed Seonkyoung Longest's recipe and made some Shoyu ramen last night. I was surprised the meat had flavor just boiling it and adding the Tare.

Thanks to TGCM for the idea to add miso to the broth!!!

 

 

Spicy tonkotsu ramen. I used leftover broth from the Shoyu last night then added white miso paste, sambal and white mushrooms. I made char siu that I had marinating over night.

 

I was surprised the broth had that much gelitan in it for a 4 hour broth.

Spicy tonkotsu broth with Japanese ramen noodles, baby bok choi, mushrooms, diced green onions, dried garlic, sambal and Tare soaked boiled egg.

Wow, that looks like an epic bowl of ramen there, Rajun Gardner! I'd slurp every last drop out of that bowl.

I tried a box of Pho from Costco and after a few added ingredients it's actually pretty good.

I added sliced onion, cilantro, sambal and hoisin.
