Pimp yo' noodle

Special thanks to Eli Silverman.


  • A packet of instant noodles (1-2 sachets)
  • Half a packet of bacon
  • Garlic, one clove
  • Ginger, roughly same size as the garlic clove
  • Scallions, 1-2 leeks
  • Half a can of corn
  • Proper dark soy sauce (more taste and less salt compared to light)


  • Cut the bacon into slices. Start frying on a pan on medium to high heat. Get some colour but avoid making the bacon crispy.
  • While the bacon is cooking, boil the the finely chopped garlic and ginger in 500ml of water in a pot.
  • Into the boiling water, add the flavour packet from the instant noodles and boil for 1-2 minutes.
  • Whilst this is boiling, chop the scallions into slices.
  • Break the instant noodles into 4 pieces and add to the boiling broth.
  • Once the noodles are almost cooked, add the bacon and boil it with the noodles.
  • When the noodles are cooked, add it all to a bown with the scallions and corn. Add soy to taste.
