Chefs share 13 of their favorite ways to upgrade instant ramen


Ditch the flavor packet if the ramen isn’t from an Asian grocery store.

Some instant-ramen flavor packets don’t have the right spices.

Packaged instant ramen usually includes a spice packet that adds umami flavor to your noodles.

But Anna Rider, a food writer, chef, and recipe developer, told Insider that not all of these flavor packets are created equal.

“Popular brands at conventional grocery stores come with lackluster spices and seasonings,” Rider said. “You’re better off cooking your noodles in chicken or vegetable broth and serving them with chili oil, Sriracha, or sesame oil with red pepper flakes.”

However, keep the packet if your instant ramen is from an Asian grocery store — it’s more likely to include authentic spices that are worth adding to your meal.
