Sometimes when I travel, I bring along ramen bowls as another backup option. Not on a plane because that would too much of a hassle, but in the car, I can have a couple of bowls rolling around in the back without too much trouble.
They’re good to have for those lunches or dinners where vegan food was scarce and I find I’m still hungry when I get back to my room. I used the in-room coffee maker to heat up the water for the ramen.
I get them from the Asian grocery store, the Kung-fu brand was $.99 each. My favorite brand was Doll, but I haven’t seen it at the store for a long time. I’ve noticed there’s less vegetarian/vegan flavors as well.
They come with the oil and seasonings/veggies in separate packets. It’s nice to be able to control how much of each to include, I usually use just 1/3 of the oil and maybe 2/3 of the seasonings.
They taste ok, like a typical instant ramen bowl, maybe a step up. I like the seaweed and tiny bits of cabbage. Since I control the oil and seasonings, it’s not too oily or salty. It’s good enough for a quick meal on the road when I’m starving, but nothing beats homemade. I’m glad to be back in my own kitchen.
