Most people know about the delicious miso and tonkatsu ramen featuring slices of meat and meat-based broth, but vegetarian options don't really come to mind. Previously vegans that loved ramen probably felt miserable because they can't eat the majority of ramen due to the ingredients that aren't vegan-friendly, but no more! You can now find cup ramen that's Vegan-friendly, and everybody can happily slurp on some noodle goodness!
The first one is from T’s Restaurant. They thought about Tokyo’s health issue, wanting to provide good food to make people's lives and bodies healthier. They released a line of vegan-friendly instant ramen, available at Natural Lawson and now they're famous for their vegan ramen.
The second one is from the Japanese big cup noodle company called Nissin Cup Noodles. You may have heard of them as sometimes their noodles appear outside of Japan too! They recently released a new series of cup noodles that are vegan-friendly with 4 different flavours featuring chicken or spicy chicken flavour, soy sauce flavour, and beef flavour.
I think most vegans will choose the soy sauce flavour but for the flexitarians and people who just want to get more vegetables in their diets, you can simply choose the chicken and beef one. With these options vegans don't have to worry to find a simple dish to eat or when you really craving for eating cup ramen. It might be only a few choices right now, but it's hopefully a trend that will keep growing!
So are you ready, all you vegans out there? Go grab a cup and happily eat some noodles to your heart's content!
