15 Things People Pair with Shin Black, World’s Best Instant Noodle

NongShim Shin Black, the Best Instant Noodle according to Wirecutter, is perfect as it is, but there will be times when you just want to change things up a bit. If you get to that point when you want to enhance your bowl’s flavor or just have something else with it, consider these recipes and ideas from folks who seem like they know their Shin Black too well:

1. Pickled Garlic

@crasspants on Twitter: “Threw some pickled garlic into my Shin Black noodle cup and I’m ascending”

2. Corn, peas, garlic, sweet onion, green onion, marinated egg, and pickled ginger


@Ahkaskar on Twitter: “Decided to pick up some pickled ginger for the ramen I’m make. at this point I start with shin ramen black and add: corn, peas, garlic (fresh stuff makes a huge difference!), thin sliced sweet onion, green onion, a marinated egg, and now a bit of pickled ginger”

3. Red pepper
