Best Instant Ramen? (please do not mock me, pretty please)

Kung Fu Ramen. The best instant ramen i've found; hard to find though.

Thier secret is they use an oil-flavor puch instead of a powder packet. I think this gives the broth portion a deeper and richer flavor. Add whatever you want to the ramen and chowdown.

Commis - Chef Counter or Regular Table?


I am taking my wife to Commis for her b-day, and wanted to ask anyone who has sat at both of these spots which they prefer and why....

I've read about the Chef Counter and it sounds nice, but if you've done that and sat at the regular table which would you do again...and why?

So, I got a Kitchen Aid stand what?

Not really going out of my way. Just trying to figure out other uses for the machine then the standard 'baking' sterotype rep (at least in my mind) this machine gets.

Wedding gift.

Guess I'll start baking, make meatballs, and have whipped cream with everything!

Seriously...what do i do with this thing?

don't bake
don't make fresh pasta

Guess I can grind meats, and make some ice cream (after getting the attachements), but what else can i really do with this thing besides taking up baking?
