In 2023, I’m trying to focus on making more healthier choices like the food I eat.
One of the things that I love to eat every now and then is ramen which is why I was super excited when I found out that plant based ramen was a thing.
I tried some Chef Woo ramen which is a plant based ramen that has 20g of plant protein per cup.
Today I’m going to share with you guys my thoughts on Chef Woo Ramen.
So let’s jump into it!
I tried Chef Woo Ramen! – Review | The Healthiest Ramen I’ve Ever Eaten – Food
Firstly I have to say that it was super easy to make.
You just add the water to the line and put it in the microwave for like 4 minutes.
Stir it then let it sit for 3 – 4 more minutes.
***I also have to put as a disclaimer that I’m a person that seasons their food with a lot of garlic powder, onion powder, and hot sauces.*
The more flavor the better when it comes to me to be honest so take what I say with a grain of salt unless you feel that you are similar to me.
The texture of the ramen was good. I was surprised that this was plant based in general!
So the first ramen I tried was the Roasted Chicken.
I really enjoyed the roasted chicken ramen.
It tasted a little similar ramen I have tasted in the past which was shocking since it’s plant based. It was extremely delicious!
It tastes great with grilled chicken.
Sweet Chili Togarashi
This one was kind of bland tasting for some reason.
I’m not sure if the water is knocking the seasonings out or what, but it was like I could smell the seasonings, but I didn’t really taste much of the seasoning although the issue could have been because it was piping hot too though.
I made sure to stir it up and let the water as well as seasonings soak into the ramen, but the flavor wasn’t really what I expected.
I could smell the seasonings as I ate it, but the taste was kind of lacking for me.
Again I like my food with a lot of flavor since I cook 6 days a week and make things to my own liking.
I did end up adding some hot sauce to the Chili ramen with some garlic powder and it tasted pretty good.
Adding your own spin on the Chef Woo ramen can definitely transform it to what you want it to be while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
This ramen had corn and some other veggies in it.
It did taste like beef which I really enjoyed, but it was also kind of bland to me.
It definitely tasted better with some garlic powder, onion powder, and some beef stew meat I had cooked the night before I ate it.
This one also had veggies in it.
This one didnt really taste like anything to be honest.
I was expecting a lemony taste or something kind of tangy, buuut there wasn’t much of a flavor.
I was kind of scared to try this one because I’ve had some lemongrass food before and I didn’t really care for it, but this ramen… didn’t taste the way I thought it would.
I decided to add some garlic powder to it along with some garlic lemon pepper chicken w/sauteed mushrooms I made the night before which definitely spruced it up a lot.
Overall, is Chef Woo ramen worth the buy?
Honestly if you want to do plant based ramen without the MSG…
I’d get it since it’s the healthiest ramen I’ve ever eaten in my life, but keep in mind that you may have to add your own seasonings to it if you like ramen packed with a lot of flavor.
I recommend buying it, adding seasonings, and some sort of seasoned mushrooms/tomatoes (if you’re vegetarian) or seasoned meat to it.
It’ll definitely make it a must have to have in your home for sure.
So would you guys try this plant based ramen?
