David Chang Demonstrates Instant Ramen Hangover Cure On 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

In a Late Night Eats segment for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Momofuku chef and ramen aficionado David Chang demonstrated how to make the perfect hangover cure: instant ramen. Chang explains that ramen is great after a night of heavy drinking because it is high in sodium, which your body craves since it is dehydrated.

Chang's cooking method -- boiling water and adding the instant ramen mix and noodles -- is obvious. (He has "no problem with" the MSG included in the powdered stock mix.) But he also suggests adding an egg, as well as various other extras, such as bamboo shoots and meat, if you're feeling ambitious. Sriracha sauce is a must.

Chang explains, "if you cannot cook instant ramen, something is wrong with you." He's clearly had some practice; Chang's Lucky Peach magazine devotes 174 pages to the subject.
