Hey guys, what about sharing some good recipes, tricks and stuff we do for breakfast, lunch or dinner ?
I'll start with something really simple.
I usually have lunch at work and I prepare something the day before.
Since I might not always have the time, I just do something with basmati rice that is quite good with any form of vegetables mix.
One really simple recipe is with canned tuna (or salmon) cooked with some oil and onions, and then adding the basmati rice with some parsley
Ramen from your childhood?

Did any of you grow up with instant ramen in the home?
My mom moved here from Japan in 1976, and our house always had cups and bags of instant ramen in the pantry. She preferred Maruchan, but bought Nissin too.
Back then, there weren't all the cheesy/Mexican/etc. flavors we have now - just chicken, beef, "Oriental", and maybe a couple of others. We also didn't have the bigger-package varieties that claim to simulate chow mein, yakisoba, etc. Just the basic cups and bags.
I also remember that the cup noodles included bits of dehydrated meat and egg. Most of them don't seem to anymore.
Tonight, I prepared a cup of Nissin, chicken flavor, and added a scrambled egg and a Sriracha drizzle (yeah, that sauce is trendy now, but remember that Asians and Asian immigrants have been using this stuff for decades).
What are your ramen memories?

What the hell happened to this place?
I remember going back in 2010 in New York, waiting in line for 20 minutes, paying a good bit of money and thinking it was worth every minute and every penny.
I haven't lived on the East Coast since then and have spent most of my time outside of the country after that, so i was excited to find out they had expanded.
The burgers are tiny, the fries are the same shit I got served in public school elementary, and they charge as much as five guys. I remember distinctly thinking they were way better than 5 guys at the time, since they were the new chain expanding into my home state at the time.
Now Shack Shake is barely better than McDondalds, definitely worse than BK, with premium prices. I thought I was just misremembering which restaurant I went to in NYC, but a friend came and visited me in the states this week, that had it with me in NYC, and also said they're straight garbage now.
Did they just completely change everything about the place except the shake sauce? Chains usually decline in quality but this seems extreme for the limited time frame
