The Roy Choi Ramen hack features ramen noodles with poached egg and green onions
Roy Choi’s Ramen Noodles are quick, easy and delicious!

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 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.
