Boy oh boy, there is so much more to ramen than instant noodles. Once you eat "real" ramen, I mean with noodles that aren't dried, and a rich broth simmered for over and hour, topped with vegetables, savory sweet meat slices, and marinated soft boiled eggs, everything kind of pales in comparison. But frozen ramen noodles (fresher the better!) can also be obtained from the Little Japan Market and will blow instant noodles right out of the water. I've had every attempt at ramen in restaurants from Eureka to Arcata and I gotta say they're kind of missing the mark. Makes me want to open a Ramen shop and give humboldtians a real treat.
I'm completely underwhelmed. I've reviewed over 2,000 different varieties of instant noodles. www.theramenrater.com
Love this and Little Japan! Thanks for sorting out their many ramen choices.
I want to make these with you! Thanks for sharing the delicious memories and the family recipe.
When I lived in Hawaii we used to make mandoo at least weekly. You've inspired me!
Fantastic article ! I loved the info , Does someone know if I could grab a blank a form example to type on ?
I have been making these for 35 years. Found recipe in cookbook and the only difference between the recipes is that the one I used also called for caraway seed in the filling. My ex loved these in his lunch bag, we took them to the beach for picnics. Never tried with salsa but loved them with mustard. They freeze pretty well too.
This dish looks absolutely disgusting, but from the list of ingredients -- it probably tastes pretty good.
I'd recommend garnishing the dish with fresh cilantro, diced onions, and tomatoes.
Oishiku nai desu
I grew up eating this here in California. My Volga River grandparents lived in Orland. My kids love these things and they are what I asked for for my birthday dinner when I was a kid. No cheese, butter brushed on top when they came out of the oven...and Grandma called them beroke. (Brrr-oak)
I had never heard of this dish, so thank you Andrea for your article and recipe.
This is such a neat idea!
I am experiencing a strong sense of Déjà Vu!
Then you can make DIY wine bottle chandelier )) http://chandeliertop.com/diy-wine-bottle-chandelier-how-to-make-a-wine-bottle-chandelier/
Stop by Humboldt Rejuvenation on Central Ave in McKinleyville for some great beer and wide assortment of farm to bottle beer brewing. The owner is fun to talk with and he brews on site in a warehouse with tasting room. Check it out. Bring a growler for take-home.
I'm curious about the beautiful produce in the photo; What farm was this food grown on? Was it really a local farm?
For the past three years, Safeway has been carrying genuine Hatch chile for the reasonable price of .99 pound. They are gone now as the Hatch season is over. However I roasted 20 pounds and they are in the freezer. My favorite recipe is Chile Relleno's made with Hatch, New Mexico style, chile filled with cheese, floured, and dipped in beaten egg whites with gently folded egg yokes. Then covered with New Mexico red sauce. As a New Mexican Native, it is important to note that chile is a traditional Native American food and is more American than aple pie.
Yummy! Thanks for explaining this so well! = )
Too bad La Barca didn't get nominated. It is my personal favorite. Their relleno has a subtle smokey flavor, great Mexican queso fresco, nice batter, and a very good sauce.
The local Facebook Chile Relleno Study Group thought Esmerelda's was good, though their marginal service ticked us off. The group very much liked the Fiesta special relleno (as opposed to their regular omelet style).
