Have you heard of the Roy Choi ramen hack? It’s genius! Roy Choi is a famous chef here in Southern California, who is known for starting the Korean fusion food trend with his gourmet Korean-Mexican taco truck, Kogi.
When we discovered his recipe for creamy ramen, we knew we had to try it at home.
Basically, Roy takes a simple pack of grocery store ramen noodles, and doctors it up with a delicious blend of melted American cheese, diced green onions, toasted sesame seeds and a soft boiled egg.
Roy prefers to use the Shin Ramyun brand of ramen, but you can certainly use anything you find in your supermarket.
This Roy Choi ramen hack is going to become a staple in your home!

I thought American Cheese in Ramen sounded terrible – it is. Crazy idea that this is a recipe. The egg was fine, but nothing that I wouldn’t add anyway. This was not a win for me.
Hey Denise, you seem to be an idiot with no taste buds. Stick to your boiled chicken with a couple shakes of black pepper that you think is “spicy”. Thanks.
This was fire!
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!
