It’s no secret ramen noodles and beer are two of the most loved food items in the world. With the rise in craft beer and the many different ways to make a bowl of ramen, you can probably find a brewery and a ramen bar in every city. But what if we told you that you could get both, at the same time? While the pairing seems pretty unconventional, beer ramen took the internet by storm in 2018 and now, you can get ramen beer in Toronto and Vancouver.
What is Beer Ramen / Ramen Beer?
Beer ramen is a Japanese dish commonly made from chilled ramen noodles that are submerged in a cold broth made of fish broth. The “drink” is served in a beer mug and topped with a “beer-like” layer of foam made of egg whites and gelatine. Other recipes include cold Kombu seaweed, Naruto fish cake, Menma bamboo shoot, scallion, sweet corn, and more.
Is Ramen beer made with real beer?
No– beer ramen is not made with actual beer. The ramen noodles are submerged in a cold broth that resembles beer but isn’t actually beer.
Is there alcohol in Beer Ramen?
Unfortunately, there is no alcohol in ramen beer. So if you’re looking to get a buzz, this probably isn’t going to be the drink/food to do it. However, you can always grab your favourite craft beer and try it at home. (We are not responsible for any emotional scarring or damage to your tastebuds)
