BYLINE: BYRON HUDSON, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) If you’re looking for a place to eat your ramen noodle fix in the middle of nowhere, there are only two options: the Pacific Northwest or the California coast.
A bowl of ramen in the Pacific is a rare treat, but it’s also a good way to warm up to the California desert and take in the gorgeous views.
It’s a common feature of the summer in California, where temperatures can drop below freezing in the winter.
Ramen noodles are usually served with a side of meatballs, but there’s also the choice of either a beef or pork noodle and an egg noodle, as well as a tofu noodle or tofu pad.
It all comes in a bowl of noodles, or ramen, a type of rice noodle that’s often steamed in a broth and then served over a rice surface.
If you’re craving some noodles, head over to the popular Ramen Noodle Festival at the California State Fairgrounds in Sacramento.
The ramen festival is the largest ramen eating festival in the U.S. and attracts thousands of visitors each year.

In fact, the dish was first introduced to California by a Japanese immigrant who moved to the U, and it spread to California as the ramen craze spread.
It’s a popular dish in Japan, but ramen fans in the state have made the move to the United States, too.
Ramens are made from ground beef and pork, and often have a spicy sauce.
They’re traditionally served with noodles, and the meatballs are usually topped with a dipping sauce.
The flavor profile of ramens vary from region to region, but the meatball topping is often a blend of pork and beef.
If you like to add a splash of soy sauce, it’s sometimes called soy ramen.
