  • (upbeat music)

  • - Hey guys, it's Inga,

  • and today, I'm gonna be testing out

  • five famous celebrity ramen recipes

  • to find out which one is actually the best.

  • And on today's lineup,

  • I've got recipes from Hwasa, NCT's Chenle, David Chang,

  • GOT7's Mark, and also Kylie Jenner.

  • I have measured out all the ingredients

  • exactly as the recipe stated,

  • and because I love ramen, I will also be judging

  • to see which one is actually the best ramen recipe.

  • I'm super excited.

  • Let's get started.

  • First up, we have NCT's Chenle.

  • He starts with cooking the chopped tomatoes first,

  • crushing them with a fork to really make the soup tomatoey,

  • and then he adds a big heaping tablespoon

  • of Lao Gan Ma chili sauce.

  • He did say you could add more if you want to,

  • so I went ahead and did that.

  • Then he adds in the dried vegetables, the seasoning packet,

  • and, of course, the ramen.

  • And then we're pretty much just cooking the noodles down

  • in the broth until it's almost done.

  • That's when we stir in a scrambled egg,

  • stir again a little more,

  • and then we just plate it up

  • and top it up with what is now a really flavorful broth.

  • And there you have it, Chenle's ramen recipe.

  • So this one looks, right off the bat, kind of spicy,

  • and it smells spicy.

  • And I love the color.

  • It's this almost bright red,

  • which I guess could be kind of terrifying, but I love spicy,

  • so I'm actually very excited for this.

  • Okay.

  • Yup.

  • What I love about this recipe is that

  • he kind of says that you can add as much spice as you want.

  • I went pretty heavy-handed on it.

  • I feel like it really enhances

  • the original spice packet flavor.

  • This feels like something I would get

  • at an actual restaurant.

  • Up next, we have Hwasa.

  • She starts by tossing in the dried vegetables and the ramen,

  • letting it cook down until the noodles have separated.

  • And then she adds in the seasoning packet

  • and basically lets it cook until the broth has reduced

  • all the way into a much thicker sauce

  • that coats the noodles beautifully.

  • That's when she adds in a generous amount of truffle oil,

  • making the noodles extra shiny,

  • and then she plates it up and tops it off with an egg yolk,

  • and then she mixes it all up before she eats it.

  • And that's it.

  • Hwasa's ramen recipe.

  • These noodles, I think,

  • are the ones that look the best out of the bunch.

  • The sauce really clings onto the noodles,

  • and there's that beautiful shine from the truffle oil.

  • I'm very, very excited about this one.

  • I love the way Hwasa kind of cooks this,

  • where she kind of cooks it with the sauce

  • and lets it simmer down and reduce

  • until it becomes this gooey thick sauce that, again,

  • coats the noodles and then you get that added element

  • of the truffle oil, top it off with an egg yolk.

  • It again felt like something

  • that I would be eating at a restaurant.

  • And yeah, so I love that she made it fancy in her own way.

  • I think this is great.

  • Next up, we have David Chang.

  • He starts by tossing in some butter, olive oil,

  • black pepper, and a lot of grated Pecorino Romano

  • into a pot of water,

  • making it into what he likes to call cheesy water.

  • And then he adds in the ramen

  • and basically cooks it in this cheesy water,

  • letting it absorb all that flavor.

  • He did also say to take out some liquid if there's too much,

  • but we're basically reducing it

  • into a sauce thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

  • At that point, he just plates it up nicely

  • and tops it off with some freshly cracked pepper.

  • And that's David Chang's ramen recipe.

  • So this one is probably the most different from the rest.

  • This is almost like an Italian take on ramen, if you will,

  • as David Chang says, even though he also agrees

  • that the Italians probably wouldn't be happy

  • if they heard him say that.

  • But I love the creative spin he puts on this.

  • I would say this surprisingly works.

  • Honestly, this opens up so many doors

  • because that just means we can cook ramen

  • with literally any pasta sauce we want.

  • Instead of spaghetti bolognese, maybe it's ramen bolognese.

  • I feel like it could be good.

  • I feel like it could be good.

  • I think this goes to show how versatile that ramen can be

  • Who knew you could do it like this next step?

  • Next up, we have Mark's recipe.

  • He starts by pretty much cooking both the cup noodles

  • and the instant rice cakes

  • according to package instructions,

  • which is just adding in some water and the seasoning packets

  • before microwaving them until almost completely cooked.

  • And then once that's done, he combines the two together,

  • giving it a good mix

  • to make sure that the sauce is covering all of it.

  • And then he adds in some mini sausages

  • and tops it off with a lot of cheese.

  • He didn't say what cheese,

  • but it looked most like mozzarella,

  • so we're going with that.

  • And then he just microwave that again for one minute,

  • until the mozzarella just melts completely, and it's done.

  • This is Mark's ramen recipe.

  • Look at that.

  • Serve me instant ramen like this,

  • and I would eat it in a heartbeat.

  • This just looks super indulgent.

  • And I feel like it's everything I love in a cup.

  • There's sausages, there's ramen, there's rice cakes,

  • there's cheese, and it smells amazing.

  • This is like the ultimate guilty pleasure.

  • There is literally nothing that I would not like

  • about everything in this bowl right now.

  • I think the other thing I love about this, too,

  • is that it's literally so easy.

  • It doesn't involve as much cooking

  • as it is just like putting things together,

  • but I think it is kind of a genius move on Mark's part

  • to be able to create this dish

  • using just convenience store items.

  • So I love this a lot.

  • All right, so for Kylie Jenner's recipe,

  • she starts by adding the ramen and the seasoning packet

  • into a pot of boiling water

  • and cooks it down enough for the noodles to loosen.

  • When that's done, she adds in some butter,

  • some garlic powder, and also a scrambled egg.

  • Give it a good stir.

  • Super straightforward.

  • And it's done.

  • There we have Kylie Jenner's ramen recipe.

  • So this one smells very garlicky, very buttery.

  • There's almost like garlic bread vibes from this one.

  • You can see the eggs in it, too.

  • All right.

  • Hmm.

  • I think looks-wise,

  • this one probably doesn't get too many points,

  • but the flavor is kind of surprising.

  • So just from that first bite alone,

  • I do feel like these kind of just feel more

  • like garlic, buttery noodles.

  • It could be garlic, buttery pasta.

  • It tastes a lot less like normal ramen at this point,

  • but it's not bad.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Out of the five celebrity ramen recipes,

  • my favorite has to be Mark's.

  • To be very honest, it was such a close tie

  • between Mark's and Chenle's.

  • Mark's is just so accessible.

  • It's so easy anybody can make it,

  • and the flavors just work together so well,

  • also because every single component in his recipe

  • are things that I love.

  • (triumphant music)

  • So there you have it.

  • Mark has the best ramen recipe.

  • There were a lot of really strong contenders,

  • so let me know which one you think is the actual winner.

  • I hope you guys enjoyed this

  • and we will see you guys next time.

  • Bye.
