If you have never had an authentic bowl of ramen, you are missing out. Find out the nearest ramen joint to your area and get out there STAT.
 
For the rest of you have love yourself a tasty, steaming bowl of noodley goodness, post your pics and add location details and help out the uninitiated.
 
I'll start with this one. Kara-Miso Ramen (literally spicy miso) from a chain store called Ramen Bandai (formerly Kurumaya Ramen). Was good for what it was, but since they took out their signature garlic from the miso (name change and chain consolidation I think) it just doesn't hit the spot anymore. :-(
 
Still enjoyed it though!

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.
 
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.

Is it this place? I'd like to try that bowl at least once.

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)

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.

I started making a few Youtube videos and tried to make one Friday but after watching a few clips I think I sound drunk. I had a bad cold for a week and been on decongestants then I had a few cocktails to quench the dry throat.
 
Whadda Ya think, do I sound drunk? This is just a small clip and I had to add the music for kicks.
 
This is my seafood curry but with stone crabs claws, same recipe I posted in the curry thread--I think.

I finally finished editing that seafood ramen curry video.
This is my take on curry noodles, Sri Lanka style. It's all in the cooking process so I made a video with all the details. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p5p2gFh-EI&feature=youtu.be

8-10 Stone crab claws
