These homemade ramen noodles are the perfect replacement for the instant kind, which honestly, are a poor representation of how delicious ramen noodles can be! These homemade ones are given their chewy flavor from sodium bicarbonate, a replacement for the alkaline salt that is often used at ramen-centric eateries. Once you've made the sodium bicarbonate, which takes up the bulk of the cooking time, making these noodles is fast and easy. Use these with your favorite broth, and you'll never crave the instant version again!
