As the ramen craze continues, I am left to ponder if there is nothing that cannot be made of ramen. We have seen ramen tacos, burgers, pizzas and sandwiches. Could we not have a ramen car? A ramen house? An entire army of ramen soldiers ready to march at my command and conquer the world in my name?
The last one may go too far, but a ramen submarine sandwich roll is not. Hugh Merwin of Grub Street made one by softening ramen, mashing it into a baguette pan, then weighing the noodles down with a wine bottle for a few hours. After baking it in the oven, he had a fine sandwich roll perfect for a cheesesteak.
