I tried to make the ramen last night with shanghai noodles. I've never worked with them before. And of course, there was no directions on the package.
Needless to say, it turned out horrible. They are just too doughy a noodle for what I was going for.
Our main problem is we do not have specialty stores here other then one Finish store on the far end of the city. Everything else has to be bought at the normal grocery. Not always the most informative people working there either.
