I love Ramen! But sometimes you order ramen and it’s just a little, well, boring. This is a little bottle of pre-mixed spices that I pack on my pocket when heading out to a new ramen place, just in case it’s one of those boring bowls. This also works great for any soup to boost it a bit.

This spice mix focuses on the ingredients that are usually in ramen and big umami boosting additions like mushroom powder, MSG, black garlic, and miso.


  • Mix all of the above and store in a glass jar or other container. I also keep a small portable tube with me like this.
