22 Ramen Reinventions: My Favourite Type of Men is Ramen

RAMEN brownies?! Or RAMEN doughnuts?! These creative ramen reinventions will blow your mind.

OH RAMEN, my one true love. You always tempt me at ungodly hours and seduce me with your delicious taste. Not to mention – slurping up a good, hearty ramen broth always nourishes the mind, body and soul.

If you’re an avid lover of ramen and have been eating ramen in its original form only, you’re missing out terribly. You’d be aghast at all the creative and slightly weird ramen concoctions people have come up with. It’s so cheap and delicious, the perfect ingredient for broke college kids or for experimental enthusiasts looking to whip up a party in their kitchen.

So without further ado, I present to you…Ramen Reinventions.

If you’ve ever had a dilemma deciding between ordering pizza or having ramen for a cosy night at home, now you won’t! Get the best of both worlds with this amazing and creative dish. Mmm… every slice seems so delicious yet sinful! Try making it yourself with this recipe here.

2. Ramen Brownies with Whisky Caramel

Ramen as dessert?! I know what you all are thinking…That’s just weird! Ramen actually doesn’t add much taste to the brownies, as seen from its heavy reliance on MSG for flavour. It’s simply a unique way to add some crunch and make the dessert more visually appealing! Tempted? You can try your hand at experimenting with this recipe.

3. Raspberry Ramen Rocky Road

Raspberry Ramen Rocky Road?! Phew, that is one long alliteration. And what a combination! Together with instant ramen noodles – toasted peanuts, pistachios, white chocolate, and raspberries amalgamate into a wondrous flavour. Sweet, salty, and crunchy all at the same time. Your mouth will be bursting with joy. Make it yourself with this recipe!

4. Ramepherd’s Pie

This is the normal Shepherd’s Pie with an added twist of ramen! The top layer of ramen is golden brown and crunchy, while the bottom layer remains soft. Contrasted with the juicy ground beef below, you will never forget the taste of a Ramepherd’s Pie! Impress your family and friends with the recipe here.

5. Ramacos (Ramen + Tacos)

OH MY, just take a look at these two mouthwatering beauties. The Vulgar Chef has created this amazing hybrid which definitely packs a punch with every single bite. The one on the left is the chicken bacon ranch ramen taco and the right one is a shaved beef-pickled jalapeno taco. Get these babies into my stomach, please!

6. Ramac and Cheese

Well obviously somebody would substitute the macaroni for ramen someday! And doesn’t that just look so sinfully delicious? The velvety cheese sauce slathered all over soft, bouncy ramen noodles is exactly what dreams are made of. A wonderful example of a Western and Asian fusion dish.

7. Kimchi Ramen Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Ramen and kimchi is like THE basic combination every Korean loves. So obviously putting them together was a no-brainer – but in a sandwich? You may find this incredibly disgusting or delicious, but I’d put my bet on the latter. Cheese, kimchi and ramen in a sandwich will never go wrong! It’s also so simple and fuss-free, you can have it ready for breakfast in no time.

8. Savory Ramen Chocolate Bar

This is one product that sounds as dubious as it looks. This chocolate bar does not just include ramen, but onion, garlic and soy sauce as well! UMMMM…This combination seems highly questionable, having both savoury and sweet ingredients mixed together. For the adventurous souls out there, you can challenge your tastebuds and purchase it here.

9. Asian Style Ramen Pancakes

These pancakes with an Asian twist look oh-so-inviting! Modify it by adding any type of vegetables that you like to suit your taste. Fry it till it turns golden-brown and savour it while it’s crunchy and hot. Bon appetit! Try it out by following the instructions right here!

10. Fried Ramen Snack

This is an insanely AWESOME alternative to munching on popcorn during stay-in movie nights! Most Asians might already be familiar with this because of the famous Mamee snacks that are similar. You can choose to fry them yourself and add the seasoning accordingly, or buy premade Mamee ones that come in chicken and BBQ flavours. BE WARNED: they are extremely addictive!

11. Ramen Burgers

Originally created by Keizo Shimamoto, the Ramen Burger was a HUGE sensation three years ago when it first surfaced as one of New York’s latest culinary creations. But did you know that you can easily make it at home? That’s right! Just follow this recipe and you’ll be good to go. The crisp and chewy ramen “buns” juxtaposed against soft, juicy meat patties will leave your tastebuds shrieking in delight.

12. Ramlette (Ramen + Omelette)

This is the ultimate breakfast hack – especially for college students or thrifty professionals looking to save some money! It’s simple, fuss-free, and can be prepared in less than 10 minutes. Throw in bacon, cheese, and any other additional ingredients you love in your omelette and voila! Follow this recipe to make your mornings easier.

13. Spicy Shrimp and Saucy Guacamole Ramen Noodle Bowl

I absolutely LOOOOVE guacamole – but I’m not too sure if ramen and guacamole belong together. Nevertheless, Karen from the Soup Addict has created this astounding combination complete with spicy prawns, tomatoes and cucumbers. And guess what – it’s actually pretty delicious! The creamy guacamole blends well with soft, springy ramen noodles, while the tomatoes and cucumbers add a refreshing kick to the whole dish. The succulent prawns are also not TOO spicy and complement the other ingredients perfectly. Try it out yourself and you’ll be equally amazed as I was.

14. Bacon Ramen Scrambled Eggs

Now, this looks like one SINFUL combination! Whoever said that ramen belongs only with soft-boiled eggs?! Another strong breakfast contender, this dish will surely brighten up your morning. You will never go wrong pairing anything with bacon, that’s for sure! Any cooking beginner will be able to whip up this dish, because it’s that easy. You can refer to the detailed cooking procedure here!

15. Peanut Butter Sriracha Ramen

All you need to make this dish are just FOUR ingredients! Easy peasy. The combination of ingredients may seem highly dubious…BUT you’ll never know until you try it yourself! Creamy with a kick of spiciness, this dish is not for the faint-hearted. Daredevils can challenge yourself with this recipe.

16. Chocolate Fudge Ramen

I’m not sure about you, but this looks positively puke-inducing to me! Comprising chocolate fudge, brown sugar and vanilla extract, this ramen dessert is not visually appealing AT ALL. Maybe a scoop of vanilla ice-cream might make it taste even better? Feel free to experiment as you like! Follow this recipe if you’re insane enough to try this out.

17. Ramen Crispy Treats

This would be the perfect Valentine’s Day present ever!  It also seems much more edible than the aforementioned Chocolate Fudge Ramen. What a unique spin on everybody’s favourite rice treats!

20. Ramen Waffle Sandwich

Can you believe your eyes?! Crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside…This ramen waffle sandwich looks absolutely delectable. In fact, it could also be a sweet dessert as well if you place a few scoops of ice-cream between them, don’t you think? You could even drizzle it with chocolate sauce or maple syrup! Either way, we’ll never get tired of eating this interesting combination.

21. Ramnuts (Ramen + Doughnuts)
