Hungry for a Modern, Healthier Ramen? We tasted Chef Woo Instant Ramen – Packed with Bigger Flavor, Better Health

Hungry for a Modern, Healthier Ramen? We tasted Chef Woo Instant Ramen – Packed with Bigger Flavor, Better Health

If we’re being honest, Instant Ramen hasn’t had the best reputation.  Kinda the opposite.  It’s known as the cheapest stuff broke college kids can eat. I ate it, maybe you did too.  You get a case at the dollar store for $10 and that could last you a week.  From 16 to 22, it’s what you did.  It was almost a rite of passage.

Too salty, full of bad stuff, tasted like a potpourri of slimy chunky stuff.  But cheap and filling.

Well, it’s time to change that.  And Chef Woo wants to do just that.  Bring good flavor and bring a much more health-conscious approach?

Did they do it?  Keep reading and find out.

Chef Woo’s Inspiration 

Chef Woo’s Instant Ramen is inspired by Song Wu Sao, the legendary female chef from ancient China, whose tasty soup became so famous, it lifted her community out of hard times.

Chef Woo’s Ramen Conclusion

How does it taste:

It has way better flavor.  I loved the chicken and braised beef.  Frankly, some of the others have too much flavor for me.  But maybe it’s perfect for you.  I don’t like spicy.  If you do, you’ll probably love all of them.

Is it healthy?

First, easily they are all more health-conscious then the previous generation.  Second, yes again, they are healthy in general.

Would I recommend Chef Woo’s Ramen?

Yeah, I’d buy the chicken and the beef.  For me, not the spicier ones.
