by Sapphire Team on January 24, 2022

When it comes to trying out new foods. It does not matter if you are someone who goes all in. Or someone who wishes to do some prior research before making a choice. You have come to the right place. Here we talk all about kimchi, ramen, and ways to elevate your Korean ramen game. So without further ado, Let’s get started!


What is Kimchi? Where does it come from?

 The name “kimchi” comes from the Korean word “chimchae”. Which means “vegetables soaked in brine.” Kimchi is a traditional side dish. And is almost always served along with other side dishes in most Korean family households and restaurants.


The colorful kimchi is usually a combination of vegetables and seasonings. It is often made from cabbage, radishes, carrots, cucumbers, and other vegetables. Seasonings include Korean red chili pepper flakes, garlic, salt, and ginger. Thus, kimchi hits a range of flavors - sweet, sour, and spicy. The good news is that most Kimchi is vegan-friendly and vegetarian friendly.


Kimchi works as a condiment, an ingredient, a dip, and a side dish all on its own. All in all, Kimchi works like a charm when one wants to make a dish interesting. It is mostly eaten with rice or other carb-based foods. And included in a lot of dishes including soups, stews, and instant Korean noodles. To bring flavors and taste to a dish. No wonder it is also called the superstar of Korean cooking!

Ways to Enjoy Korean Kimchi Ramen Noodles


If you are feeling creative, you may go on to add your own favorite add ons. Here are a few that we recommend.


  • Skip the flavoring. Use your own broth. Any kind you prefer is it chicken stock or miso paste.


  • Add fresh aromatics such as green onions, fresh garlic, ginger. To give the flavors some oomph


  • Sauce it up! Add chili garlic sauce, sriracha, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, soy sauce. Or any number of other sauces into your ramen for more flavor


  • Yes, vegetables! carrots, corns, mushrooms, cabbage. It completely depends on your taste ( and mood)


  • Add a choice of protein. Tofu, soy, anything! 


  • Top it off with herbs. Basil, Cilantro, sesame oil, seaweed.
