One Culture Foods Japanese Spicy Ramen

Ramen has to be one of the hottest food trends across the country these past few years. This product from One Culture Foods (a brand I’ve seen more and more on shelves) promises to bring the fun of your local ramen noodle shop – to the comfort of your home kitchen.

Inside the cardboard tub you’ll find a trio of ingredients. The ramen noodles are joined by separately packed dried and wet seasonings. Cooking couldn’t be easier. All you need is the tub, some boiling water and a few minutes of time. The product literally cooks up in the same tub it comes packed in – presumably allowing for a simple meal on the go.

By themselves the ramen and broth is fairly average. I expected a little more richness given the packaging and all the mention of bone broth. I found myself adding a little more umami and heat with hoi sin, soy and sriracha. Oh and some pork tonkatsu

Once embellished a little the dish really came to life. A soft boiled egg, green onions, sprouts etc are just a few more items that I think would lend more pizzazz. As a standalone dish this one is fairly mediocre – but as a launch pad for a more composed dish, it does offer a decent starting base.
