This instant noodle dish is an example of how ramen is becoming a popular ingredient for creative fusion foods. The Kimchi Ramen Grilled Cheese recipe by Tastespotting.com resembles a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, only that it's filled with curly ramen noodles. Grilled cheese vendors often fill sandwiches with macaroni -- this would be a variation of that concept with an Asian twist. Apparently this is a common recipe in the Philippines.
The recipe is pretty straight forward: the noodles can be seasoned with anything, in this case, kimchi for a spicy kick. One word of advice from the creator is to use very sturdy bread, as the moist noodles could easily make the sandwich fall apart.
Asian foods have recently gained popularity in North America, so it's not a huge surprise that even the conventional dishes are being re-imagined with Oriental ingredients like kimchi and ramen.
