Ramen Bowl with iPhone Dock

Too bad this doesn’t exist for my Android phone.

From NPR:

Eating the popular noodle dish normally requires two hands — one for chopsticks, the other for a spoon. Designers at a Taiwanese company noticed a guy trying to do that while juggling his cell phone. So they came up with a way to slurp it up while watching videos or reading emails.

This story from GeekSugar has a picture, but I’ve yet to see an explanation of how you’re going to avoid splashing ramen all over the phone.

Truffled Sour Cream Ramen

Paul a fellow UMR/MS*&T alum, sent me this gem. It’s so simple, but so fancy.

    Ingredients

  • 1 bag of beef ramen
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of white truffle oil

Cook the noodles as instructed by adding them to boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain all of the water with the exception of approximately 1 tablespoon of water. Next add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Enjoy.

Paul notes that the sour cream, beef flavoring, and truffle oil really give it a very heavy umami taste.

Personally, I don’t like sour cream that much, but I’ve found more and more than when it’s mixed in to things it tastes good. Just don’t put a big spoonful on top of my nachos.
