Noodles
pick your favorite or make your own. I used hand-made ramen noodles from T&T, but I’m still looking for Kansui to make my own noodles. Kitchen Musings has an awesome guide to how to perfectly cook your ramen noodles.

I didn’t find the sauce very thick and creamy in the recipe but still very tasty and simple to do.
