    When you make ramen noodles, do you leave the water in it or drain it?

    Depends on what I want. Do I want soup or do I want noodles. I'll do either one. When I order them a restaurant they always come with the soup.

    Drained, always.

    I'm assuming you're talking about the 10 cents a package stuff from the grocery store . . . otherwise you need to clarify. REAL ramen is not even in the same ball park as the stuff you make at home.

    Yes, the cheapo bags. I don't know about 10 cents, I pay 3/$1.00 :)

    Dude, that's way expensive. It's been a long time since I've bought them, but you could get them at places like Aldi's 10 for a buck.

    Well, i think you get the award for most random question to be asked on a forum. LOL

    Anyway....
    Ramen Noodles are hard to find in Canada(or at least where i live), but our equivalent is Mr. Noodle which is basically the same. Personally i don't like 'soup' part so i drain MOST of the water/liquid, not all though.... gotta' keep some flavour. :)

    can we get an option for "a little bit of both"?

    I like to have a little bit of water left but not enough to really make it like soup...

    I too do both but mostly the drained. Ramen noodles are the great cheap food. I think the best deal I got lately was the 12 pack for $1.50. I have so many recipes I use with it, that I see it as the Duct Tape of the food world.

    I didn't even know that 'Ramen Noodles' were...until Corry mentioned them on here, 5 or 6 years ago. :lol:

    I don't drain them, but I don't like a lot of water, so I use just enough so that it it's almost all soaked up. At work, I put them into a large mug, fill with hot/boiling water and just let it sit for 5 minutes or so.

    I haven't had one in years though. It's almost lunch time and now I'm really hungry. :drool:
