Ramen Pancake

I remember those days when I was in college, and all I ate was pretty much instant noodles and eggs. Actually, I kind of think instant noodles are college kids’ staple food. It’s fast, cheap, easy, and delicious!

Okay, the reason we say Ramen Pancake when it looks more like an omelette is because this dish is originally called Martabak Mie. And the direct translation would be martabak = pancake, and mie = noodle. So yeah, Ramen Pancake sounds about right.

This recipe is actually from East Java, Indonesia. It’s a way to give your instant noodles some sort of a twist.
