If you’re not very familiar with Japanese cuisine, the first thing that comes to mind when you think of ramen is probably the cheap, pre-packaged, cup noodles that college kids can’t get enough of. While those salty, simple Ramen packets may be a quick, cheap fix to mid-afternoon hunger when you’re on a budget, they have absolutely nothing on traditional Japanese-style Ramen.
Bowls of delicious Ramen can be filled with anything from tender pork belly to healthy tofu, and while the filling possibilities are almost endless, almost every bowl has a perfectly cooked egg, a flavorful broth, and enough noodles to satisfy you forever.
Some of the ramen recipes on this list are healthy while others are downright indulgent, but no matter their ingredients, we can almost guarantee they’ll make your tummy grumble.
