Chef Roy Choi Soups Up Instant Ramen With American Cheese (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Thought you'd never look at another package of instant ramen again after college? What if American cheese was involved?

In his new cookbook, L.A. Son: My Life, My City, My Food, chef Roy Choi of L.A.'s famous Kogi taco truck (among a slew of other popular restaurants) shares this souped-up instant ramen recipe that will forever change the way you look at your 2 a.m. college dinner (or 2 p.m. breakfast).

"Making instant ramen is spiritual, important and methodical for Korean-American kids," Choi tells Tasting Table. "It's our peanut butter and jelly sandwich."

Choi's recipe involves sesame seeds, scallions, butter, and yes, two slices of American cheese. Instant ramen has never looked so good.
