Formerly the Made In The USA list, The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten American Instant Noodles Of All Time still is comprised only of varieties manufactured in the United States. This year’s list is comprised of all the best varieties from the United States in my reviews up to number 3,950. These varieties are mostly easily found as they’re not imports. Lots of great stuff to try here as well as links to find it on Amazon. I’ve also included some announcements at the bottom so make sure to check those out as well. With that, let’s check out The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten American Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition!

#10: Maruchan Creamy Chicken Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup
The noodles for this particular variety are just out of this world perfect. They have a decent and very standard gauge and suck up just enough broth. The broth has a very easy going creamy chicken taste, creaminess thanks to non-dairy creamer. Definitely my all-time favorite of the US Maruchan pillow pack range. Original review | Get it here
#9: Nongshim Shin Black Spicy Pot-Au-Feu Flavor
This one’s a no brainer – lots of great noodles are backed up with a very complex broth which imparts a spiciness and some nice rich flavor. This is a premium version of Nongshim’s flagship Shin Ramyun product, popular the world over. Original review | Get it here
#8: Nongshim Kimchi Flavor Noodle Soup
The tanginess of kimchi and noodles come together in this one. What’s more, it’s a very tasty Vegan variety that everyone can enjoy. You can cook it with boiling water or conveniently microwave as well. Original review | Get it here
#7: Nissin Cup Noodles Seafood Ramen Noodle Soup
#6: Nissin Cup Noodle Original Ramen Noodle Soup
A made in the United States version of the Cup Noodle variety from Japan that started it all. Full of different garnishes and great flavor, this is what launched the cup style global instant ramen revolution. Original review | Get it here
#5: Sapporo Ichiban Japanese Style Noodles Chow Mein
Call it chow mein or yakisoba, it’s truly delicious and has graced many of my early annual top ten lists. No broth in this one – a noodle with a nice toothsome nature and a vibrant flavor. It comes with seaweed powder as a topping – use it or toss it, it’s absolutely wonderful stuff. Original review | Get it here
#4: Nongshim Soon Veggie Noodle Soup
This one is really a cut above. I find it a smoother version of Shin Ramyun with a very bright flavor and texture. This one’s microwavable and suitable for Vegan folks as well. Original review | Get it here
#3: Maruchan Bowl Taste Of Asia Tom Yum Ramen Noodle Soup
To be honest, I’m about as surprised by this one as you might be! But make no mistake – this US domestic variety is truly amazing. The tom yum flavor is just superb along with a huge quantity of noodles. You’ll fill up and be extremely happy as you do so. Original review | Get it here
#2: Nongshim K-Army Stew Style Noodle Soup With Chili Beans
This one’s just a really great bowl. Budae Jjigae is a Korean dish. It translates to army stew or troop stew. Melding snacks from troops stationed during the Korean War and Korean cuisine, this fusion dish features an East meets West flavor which is hard to beat. Original review | Get it here
#1: Nongshim Tonkotsu Ramen Premium Noodle Soup
This one really took me off guard. Made in the United States by a company that usually produces Korean varieties, we have a Japanese standard. Tonkotsu is a pork bone broth and noodle combo that’s very good, and this is honestly one the the best I’ve tried anywhere. It is microwavable and comes with a sachet of spicy stuff so you can have it spicy or not. Just amazing stuff – bravo! Congratulations to Nongshim America for winning The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten American Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition! Original review | Get it here
The Ramen Rater’s Definitive Guide To Nissin Cup Noodles Pumpkin Spice Flavor
I’ll admit, I went a little overboard on this one. My 4000th review was an enormous yakisoba which I made into a few different things. Little did I realize that my 4001st review would be even more insane. Pumpkin pie, bread, French toast, prison burritos – and more. A full review and everything you could possibly want to know about the limited edition flavor that won’t be around for long. Check it out here!

Yeah, bread made with instant noodles! A friend and I hatched the idea while back and I’ve gone a little crazy with it – it’s a lot of fun making bread! Here’s where you can see the latest loaves and videos!
The Ramen Rater Shop
People have been asking where to get a lot of varieties and so I’ve partnered with Exotic Noods to bring you The Ramen Rater Shop. Here you’ll find an expending variety of instant noodles at a pretty decent price. You’ll be able to try a wide array of varieties and not have to buy a ton of each variety. I really wanted to have a way you could just buy a single pack of two at a time. The same way I do when I visit an Asian grocery.
The Ramen Rater App For Android
The Ramen Rater App for Android has been given a whole new look and functionality. With it, you can scan bar codes to see reviews I’ve done while at the store, peruse the top ten lists, and do simple searches. It’s really great – even a dark mode! Finally, it’s free and currently ad-free.
