    I'm so sorry, any time I said baking powder, please interpret that as baking soda. I'm shy on sleep and I have lain waste to my own voice-over.

      You should open a restaurant. Not like 5 star but 3.5 - 4 star restaurant.

      Binging with Babish I think the soy sauce u use is probably a chinese one, but actually there's a noticeable taste difference between the chinese ones and japanese ones, so I recommand trying the recipe again with the japanese ones

    I appreciated this video. :) Especially about how to get the water for ramen because that has puzzled me.
    I've heard the slurping is more about not burning yourself than insulting or not insulting anyone though. XD

    I know its cooking and it so it doesn't count, but the mixed measuring standards drives me nuts in cooking. 4Oz+2Tb water and some grams of something... tablespoons, ounces, and grams all in 5 seconds. Every standard measure in the world finds its way back to the metric standard in the end so can't we just use metrics for everything?

    Theres a local ramen restaurant downtown where I live and my first encounter with traditional ramen was Tonkotsu ramen. Definitely worth every cent. Unfortunately I had a stomach bug that day but I still powered through.

    at the japanese people here: is it correct to make the tare with anchovis? does it belong in a traditional tare? I thought it's just mirin, soy sauce, garlic, ginger (,katsuobushi, kombu)?

    My sister made this. The only caveat was she used packaged udon noodles rather than homemade ramen noodles. It basically came off like bacon noodle soup. Wasn't bad. Didn't care for the marinated egg.

  • PumkinKiing
    PumkinKiing 2 months ago

    just a couple of suggestions:
    try adding a tiny bit of oil to the bottom of the bowl. black garlic oil is 1 of my favorites, also a hot chile oil is good, even a basic sesame oil works. honestly, you could even just drop a 1/4 of a tsp of the grease that cooked out of the pork. but trust me, that little bit of extra oil makes a HUGE difference.
    also, you should use a wire to cut the eggs. theres actually a cool little tool you can get for it, or just use a piece of stainless steel wire, or a piece of thread...but if you make ramen on a regular basis, its more than worth the one or two bucks to order the tool online. it makes a cleaner cut, and you lose basically no yolk.
    also, if you use refrigerated eggs, and you ever get that problem where cold eggs crack when being put into boiling water, just use a thumbtack/push pin, and poke a hole in the fat
    end of the egg where the little air bubble usually is. it will allow the egg to release that pressure caused by the rapid change in temperature, and keep it from cracking.
    and finally, what the hell is up with that dollhouse sized ramen bowl?
