Try putting in curry powder, onion powder, five spice powder or sriracha sauce. Adding all of those together is my favorite way to prepare instant ramen.

For some reason these ramens have always tasted great to me. Never add anything except protein.
It's the microwavable stuff that is really hit-and-miss and can either be onpar with OP's pic or just terrible.
One time I added taco meat. Made it really nice and spicy, loved it even though it seemed weird at the time.

Hey /jp/.
Have you ever been hungry to a point of where you start smelling food despite the fact that there is no food near you at all?
Nothing in the fridge, nothing in the cabinet. And even if you eat something, you still feel weak.

May as well cook your own from noodles which aren't deep fried in msg if you are going to that extent. All you need is some dry ramen noodles and dashi stock and it will me so much more satisfying than instant noodles.

Add bit of oil or butter. If you eat any noodles "raw" without any condiments always add one or two eggs into the migs when you boil them. Depending on your taste you can have the egg quite raw or let it boil a bit but it always adds lot of flavor to the noodles and the msg flavor enhancer found in the spice packets of the noodles also enhance the taste of eggs greatly.

For what it's worth, lime chili shrimp is easily the best maruchan ramen flavor.

for vegetables try garlic chives, water spinach, bok choy, napa cabbage, tofu skin, or lotus root.
for preserved shit try chili bamboo shoots, pork floss, or char siu sauce.
for random toppings try meat or fish balls, or dumplings.
or if you live in a shitty area like i do you could just forgo all that and stick with green onions, eggs, and sliced pork shoulder. and sriracha sauce too if you've given up on your taste buds.

Get some chopped cabbage and minced garlic and toss them in with the noodles. Then, after boiling, drain off most of the water to thicken the sauce. Your cheap-o ramen-like meal is now a cheap-o Yakisoba-like meal!

Try making one from scratch instead of consuming chemicals, it's not hard to find out how to make one with youtube. And tough some might require an ingriedient from Japan, there are always substitute ones that give out simillar taste or even looks.

Don't use the seasoning packet. Throw it away. Use real broth. I would recommend chicken ginger broth. Add shredded chicken, cabbage, shredded carrots, and green onions. And an egg. Top with a drizzle of chili oil or sriracha if you want to add some spice.

i've been eating chicken flavored maruchan a few times a week for the past like 20 years, and it's still one of my favorite foods.

just make sure you don't cook it too long or it will get gross and soggy, but also let it sit in the water for a few extra minutes (if you drain it) so the noodles get juicy.

otherwise idk

>> No.18659474

Add any vegetable you have at home. Any. I have used leftover salad leaves, carrots, potatoes, anything. Green stuff is best though, especially garlic chives or any kind of salad.

Add an egg. Maybe extra fat (sesame oil or even a tiny piece of butter). If you like it spicy, add chili oil. If you like it creamy, add cream or milk.
