2. Other recommendations to add to your Korean Instant Ramen are tofu, Korean fish cake/Odeng 오뎅, bokchoy, mushrooms, garlic, Spam, rotisserie chicken .... anything you like!

3. You can do different types of eggs -- scrambled the egg in a bowl and add it to the broth while boiling to create a type of egg drop soup or crack the raw egg whole in the broth for 1 to 2 minutes before the cooking is finished to poach the egg. A soft-boiled egg placed on top is delicious too.
