Basically, you want to eat ramen while it's (literally) hot. And you probably want to eat it quickly -- meaning you probably don't want to spend two weeks making something you are going to eat in four minutes. You have to make sure the juice is worth the squeeze, right? So, if you're into project cooking, consider making your own broth or buying a high-quality one, getting some higher-quality noodles, and incorporating some of the advice above.
You could also avoid labor of any kind and just go to a place like Ivan Ramen. Let's be real: It will probably taste better, too. Also, they'll do the dishes for you. But if you're kicking back at home with a brick of kinky dried noodles and a packet of flavor dust, it's easy enough to scrounge around in the fridge and pantry to make your lazy dinner much, much better.
