The Epicure

IF THEN ELSE

If box pasta and sauce-from-a-jar are the sweatpants of cuisine, then Top Ramen is the food equivalent of turning yesterday's underwear inside out and wearing them again.

Three guesses as to what I ate last night.

...And no, I didn't try to improve it with the addition of an egg, miso paste, tofu or chopped green onion. It was straight up, unadorned and boring long noodles in "oriental" flavored salty broth.

Why else would I have written this?
