Ramen Latkes With Sriracha Mayo

Living in LA is like a foodie Wonderland. On almost every corner in almost every neighborhood, there is something delicious to eat.
And the foodies here in LA do a lot of things right, but by far the top three are tacos, sushi, and ramen. In fact, ramen is so good here it inspired me to make my own just recently. Being the typical Jewish mother that I am I made far too many noodles. The next morning it occurred to me, “why not fry up some leftover ramen noodles, slap some sriracha mayo on top and have ourselves a nice ramen-inspired latke?!”
I think one of the most fun things about this latke creation is the world of toppings you can choose. If you can master the soft-boiled egg, that might be nice on top of your latke with some fresh, peppery radishes and some cilantro. You can also add sautéed shitaki mushrooms, sliced jalapeno or a combination of flavors, just like your favorite ramen. Think of this ramen latke as a beautifully fried blank canvas. Once you have it mastered, your flavor world is wide open. Go explore.
