Asians Are Confused At Why People Are Freaking Out Over Kylie Jenner’s Ramen Recipe

Twitter users are praising Kylie Jenner’s ramen recipe as the best thing ever after she shared her ingredients on her Snapchat on Friday. 

It’s no secret that the Kardashian clan member is a fan of ramen.

Last Friday, she shared with her fans a snap of her culinary masterpiece. According to the caption, Jenner adds garlic powder, butter and an egg to her ramen.

Jenner then started a thread about ramen recipes and urged followers to share their own secret ingredients on Twitter.

A number of fans praised Jenner after trying her recipe for themselves.

This isn’t a brand new idea though. Asian people have been adding seasonings and toppings on their ramen for as long as we know it. Toppings for ramen include mushrooms, dried seaweed, corn, kimchi and eggs. They’re usually served in a soft-boiled form, but can also be poached in a hot bowl of broth.

“Asian people have BEEN doing this shit before you were even a nut in your dad’s pink ballsac. We’ve BEEN cupping and jazzing up our ramen.” The Love Life of an Asian Guy wrote in a Facebook post, which has since gotten over 1,4000 shares and counting.

It seems that Jenner is introducing her fans to some “new” things. Some had no idea what ramen noodles are.

Perhaps that’s a good thing given the reportedly negative health effects of top ramen.
