T has been adapting into Malaysian lifestyle pretty well, especially things and stuffs related to food and dining. Malay words he has learned are mostly related to food, such as makan (eat), pulut (glutinous rice), bungkus (pack/take-away), etc. He has also learned that we could buy roasted chicken and duck's bone from the roasts stall at the hawker centre.

The very first time I bought bones, I was asked if they were for dog! I told the boss "No, they are for making soup". Since then, I am now a regular customer of that stall on T's requests. RM1 for one big bag of bones, sometimes free of charge if I spent on other stuffs. Hopefully after this post I still can get them at the same price on my next visit!


Broth cooked with those bones is good for making vegetable soup, porridge, ramen, etc. To make broth, put bones (discard charred bits and fats) in a pot and add in some vegetables such as cabbage, onion and carrot. Fill in water, just enough to cover all ingredients. Bring to boil and let it simmer for 1 to 2 hours, or longer hours if time allowed. Strain, and season with salt and pepper if necessary.

For making ramen, the mushroom and vegetables can be cooked in the broth. As for noodles, boil them in a separate pot with pinch of salt. Then, arrange all ingredients in a bowl and fill in broth gently. Simple?

Lydia, the ramen looks so sumptous! I am drooling over here. It's hard to find a pack of chinese noodles here in Istanbul and ramen is as good as non-existence! It's a good idea to use the bones from the roasts! 5-star award to you. LOL.

If my youngest son see this noodle, I'm sure he will ask me immediately cook it. He just a noodle lover. Your noodle look simple and nice.

Glad that you loved it!

It looks like you have to smuggle lots of food items into Instanbul!! Or make Instanbul ramen instead?? :D

Show it to him!!
Try it out, the soup is really good. Our guest (Japanese) loved it too. They (hubby and guest) missed ramen so much and it was able to satisfy their craving.
