Not Your Common Ramen

To the uneducated, "gourmet instant noodles" may sound like an oxymoron, like "vegan bacon" or "tasty vegan bacon", but there exists an underground realm of savory gourmet ramen, where bowls abound and exotic flavors reign supreme.

By foolishly conflating instant ramen with sad, sorry Cup-O-Noodles, the Western World has barely skimmed the spicy broth surface of superior ramen. The Ramen Connoisseur Crate is a starter kit in the journey toward adventurous eating, creating exquisite taste at an instantaneous pace.

Advanced Techniques

We've scoured the most exotic Japanese, Korean, and Chinese markets to find these world-class ramen flavors. Beginner boilers should heed these objectively optimal preparation instructions to maximize taste:

  • Prepare packs only with triple-distilled water imported from the volcanic hot springs of Mount Fuji
  • Move heat source as close to sea level as possible for even cooking times- this may require taking the water boiler to the lowest level of the library or the locker room of the aquatic fitness center
  • Allow noodles to 'breathe' for 5 minutes once the pack is opened before adding to hot water- singing to the dry noodles for these 5 minutes opens the pores and allows them to harmonize with the essence of their environment

The Ramen Doctor

MSG? Try PhD. The Ramen Connoisseur Crate has an advanced degree in Exquisite Flavor and Seasonings. The authentic Chili Seasoning, Chili Oil, and Japanese Pepper can doctor up the worst of dining hall blunders, or bring knock-off Ramen to a consumable standard.

And of course, ramen this enticing doesn't go unnoticed by those with jealous, dubious intentions. These chopsticks are the most intimidating way to ward off future Ramen rivals (and there will be many).

Awaken your tastebuds with the Ramen Connoisseur Crate, and see how deep the ramen bowl truly goes.

    I purchased this for my husband thinking it would be better quality than the regular ramen crap from the grocery store, but it was far worse!! This product is advertised as “gourmet” and the description makes a joke about MSG not being an ingredient. Not only is there MSG in every pack, but also TBHQ! The ramen looks like it came from a dollar store and is loaded with far worse ingredients than what I was trying to avoid in the first place!! Also tasted gross. Not worth $50 plus shipping. Maybe the other crates are better, but I wish I didn’t waste my money on this one and sacrifice my husband’s health in the process. The description is extremely misleading. False advertising for sure!!

    Great "Get Well" Gift

    My nephew had surgery and was going to be laid up for a week or so. I had this sent to him the day before his surgery thinking the ramen would be a nice change from regular chicken soup. He loved the crate and the crowbar and the whole deal. Thanks for this great guy gift!

    I received the Ramen crate as a birthday gift from my lovely fiancee. I was surprised when I opened the crate (without breaking the box) and saw different types of Japanese noodles with exotic flavors such as chili oil. With great flavors, Ramen can be an exotic lunch or dinner meals. The only thing I missed was a wooden bowl where I can pour the Ramen noodle and enjoy. Arigatō,'man kurētozu' chīmu!

    Intriguing Approach for Gift

    A family member sent this gift to me for my birthday and I was happy with it. I found it fascinating to open a gift with a mini-crowbar, on top of being placed in a cardboard box wrapped with duct-tape (per her special request) - I was not expecting anything like this. The items inside were great! There were only 2 downfalls, like others here mentioned: (1) the crate was heavily glued instead of nailed (broke the box trying to pry it open and got the crowbar sticky) and (2) I was disappointed that I received regular chopsticks instead of the sword chopsticks. Other than that, I loved it and it may be the new trend for gifting.

    Ramen <3

    My BF loved opening the crate and was very surprised with what was inside. I was a little disappointed as the chopsticks were just regular black disposable chopsticks and not the chopstick swords as shown. This was especially upsetting because the description actually states “These chopsticks are the most intimidating way to ward off future Ramen rivals (and there will be many).” Implying that they will in fact be swords, not just regular chopsticks. They were actually my incentive to get this crate, as I also got him an actual sword for x-mas thought it would all be fun together. Still a really good gift, it was just very misleading
