Everyone loves a good bowl of ramen. Ramen never disappoints. It is an easy meal on a busy day, it is great on a student budget, and you can make it your own. Instead of throwing the noodles in a bowl and pouring over some boiling water, take it up a notch with these ridiculously simple ways to make your bowl of ramen that much better. 


Crack an egg in it 

Crack an egg into a steaming hot bowl of ramen soup and let it cook for a bit in the broth. It will create the perfect flavour to your dish, and you can have ramen for breakfast! 



Add some crispy tofu 

While your water is boiling for the noodles, quickly fry up a few slices of tofu in a pan with some oil.
