[Eater]Watch Ramen-Slinging Robots Prepare Bowls in Just 90 Seconds - Page 4

post #31 of 42
Yeah, mechanical "hands" moving by scripted algorithm - not a tech revolution.
Right word there is preparing - throwing ingredients in a bowl, because I can't see cooking process there.
Anyway, I am not mind to have such thing at my home:) but still will have to cook noodle, soup, and other ingredients for that dish.
Love ramen!

Not really. He specifically mentioned how much money he makes at work in correlation with the time it would take to prepare his own meals. He didn't say anything even resembling "I would rather use the 1-2 hours that it would take me to cook a nice meal to perfect my juggling skills."

Even if his opening could have been misunderstood, he summarized it at the end by saying "Unless your specialization is very low income then it's a very bad idea for you to make your own food." Basically "If you have a lot of income it's a very bad idea to cook" That's just completely ridiculous.

The implication of the argument, not what he said to build up the argument... that's why I said it was a little not so great to engage the conversation from that angle. (the implication of his personal philosophy isn't so set in stone, but possible.)

Now we get to talk about his example and how you may or may not have to pitty him for his situation, which I honestly have no care for.

Being a free discussion, we can of course go to personal story time, rather than evaluating the merits of the underlaying argument. Have fun I guess?

Anyhow, it's true that both you and him trying to rule out each other's standpoint entirely is completely unwarranted. Of course pittying him for his philosophy doesn't directly lead to a compromise, where both activities have merits. Be it cooking with advanced tools/A.I. or with minimal tools.

edit: If you want to criticise a disdainful part of a comment, you can do that outright, by the way. Like, just because someone's low skilled by today's standards, does not make that person necessarily more fit to cook their own meals with more primitive tools. Though there's less obvious ways they'd translate opportunity into enjoyment. Then again, money isn't so clear in its workings with regard to enjoyment, either. At least that's my take on that.

What do you think real scratch made ramen costs? Not only that, but real ramen tends to be served in huge bowls, even in Japan, and can feed two.

I'm guessing he's thinking of those instant ramen packs you can get for 20 cents. I've had real japanese ramen at 3 different places here and it's always $8-10.

Noodles are noodles and no bowl of noodles is worth $10, but you're right, I've never had "real" ramen. Unless you count 20 cent ramen specially prepared by an Asian family as "real" ramen. What's the difference?

The difference is everything. It's the same as the difference of a $1 Mcdouble and a burger at a place like 5 Guys. It's like the difference in a steak at Waffle House and a steak at Ruths Chris. A steak is a steak right?

If you like those regular instant ramen packs, do yourself a favor and splurge on a bowl of miso or tonkotsu ramen if you can find it in your area. It's not a tiny little bowl either..it's a full meal. $8 for a meal in a restaurant isn't really anything out of the ordinary price-wise. Even just reading the wikipedia page will show you that there is a massive difference between the real soup and a brick of freeze dried noodles, a packet of salt for flavoring, and 2 cups of boiling water.

No, I meant what's the difference between cheap ramen specially prepared at home by an Asian the way they like it to some ramen from an Asian restaurant. Probably only the noodles. Just because I haven't had it from an Asian restaurant doesn't mean I haven't had it the Asian way, albeit with cheap noodles.
