Dave's House O' Ramen


Remember what you used to eat almost every day sophomore year, right after you couldn't take anymore Mac N' Cheese and didn't want to eat another frozen Burrito?

You'd march down to the store and plunk down that cherished and hard to find dollar bill, and you'd walk out with 5 packages of Top Ramen, or some other cheap, packaged noodle.

And at 20¢ a pop, it's no wonder many college student diets would revolve around Ramen. And it's no wonder that many people older than a college Junior doesn't want to ever touch Ramen again.

One day I needed some cheap food, and someone made me some real Ramen.

I was skeptical. I couldn't believe that someone in their 20's could still stomach the stuff. I couldn't imagine putting more of this into my system, regardless of how authentic the packaging looked.

Boy was I wrong.

Since then, I've discovered all sorts of wonderful Ramen. They're hard to find unless you're fortunate enough to have access to a real Asian market.

If you're lucky, like me, you'll find an entire Asian supermarket, with an entire aisle devoted to Ramen.

And if you can afford the 300% or more increase in price (good ramen averages a whopping 69¢ or more a packet) and the loads of MSG, you're in for a treat.

If you can't find Ramen in your area, check out Ramen City!

Special note to college sophomores: Please ignore the contents of this page. Someday, you will learn the joy of real Ramen, but you can't truly appreciate it until you've suffered through the cheap mass of crappy ramen that you must first eat. Consider it a test of character. It is your destiny.
