Do you like ramen? Do you like eggs? Then you should try this...
A friend who lived and studied in Japan for a year taught me this recipe. As you probably know, college students are the ones who like to get creative with food because they usually never have any. This particular recipe involves a college staple: ramen.
It’s based off of the Japanese food okonomiyaki
, a sort of pizza-pancake made out of noodles. The toppings usually include a type of sauce, like mayonnaise (which is different from ours, more sweet), and fillings like meats, and topped with seaweed flakes (which wiggle in an eerie way because of the heat). It’s basically Japanese soul food and it’s really, really good. Looks like this:
Only this is different because you’re using ramen instead of udon or yakisoba. It sounds odd, but once you try it, you’ll be making it for breakfast, dinner, and probably for hangover days too. I recommend trying chicken flavor first. The Ramlette
