Mind of a Chef

David Chang has a show on PBS! Awesome for all you foodies out there. Below is an excerpt where David talks about eating raw ramen when he was a kid. This is exactly what I used to do, except instead of sprinkling the flavor packet on top of the ramen, I’d eat that raw (or give it to my dog Sunny) and actually SELL the flavor packets individually to my classmates in junior high. They’d go as high as $2 for a single flavor packet, which I taught them to sprinkle on their palms and lick. My most popular flavor was the Tongyi Beef Noodles that my parents used to get at the Taiwanese supermarkets in the suburbs of Los Angeles. So yeah, this brought back memories.
