When people travel, they often bring something home.
For me it’s usually a food idea(s).
This RED Ramen was inspired by Vegan Tonyu Red (ramen) I had at Marukin Ramen in Portland which I visited last month.
I tried to upload my picture of their ramen, but for some reason I was not able to.
But trust me, their soup was red!
I mean really red.
When I first saw it, I instantly thought it would be way too spicy to eat, but it wasn’t.
It was spicy, but more than anything, it was tasty.
So now back home I wanted to make my own red ramen.
These are not really ramen noodles because they are a bit wider and flatter, but I like these.
First of all, they are vegan (no eggs).
And I like its ingredients.
No artificial yellow coloring.
Believe it or not, lots of noodles contain artificial yellow coloring.
Next, I pick a bowl for my ramen.
This is not a traditional ramen bowl, but the “white x red” color combination with the unique design makes it a good candidate.
(I’m actually shopping for a traditional ramen bowl right now.)
Made in Japan!
Noodles go in first.
Soup, and then grilled king mushrooms and toppings.
My RED Ramen was super tasty!
So I think I accomplished my mission with this one.
