You're probably familiar with adding extras such as eggs and cheese, if you're a fan of instant Ramyun, but have you tried adding tomatoes? How about Lao Gan Ma (a sauce made with Chinese Chili)? This upgraded Ramyun recipe requires both, creating an interesting flavor that is shockingly good, according to Jisung.

Another suggestion from Chenle is to try to mix your egg throughout the soup, as opposed to leaving it whole, although it's fine either way. To get the taste just right, he insists that being precise is important, so be sure to accurately measure your water!

This "recipe" is almost more a trick than a treat because Eunbin talks about the 150-year-old jam of her grandmother and the knife of a vampire. Even it is worth sharing with Halloween coming up.

Besides when you watch Eunbin make her Jack Skellington masterpiece, the real names of the ingredients (spoiler: the 150-year-old jam is cookie butter spread) should be pretty evident. Maybe this recipe would even encourage you to come up with a spooky dessert of your own!
