TOP TEN SPICIEST 2022

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

One thing I’ve noticed – spicy is in. This list tends to be the most popular on my website The Ramen Rater every single day. People just want to get all the spicy they can get. Why is that? Spicy is intense. Spicy compliments flavor. Spicy will knock you on your butt. The challenge and chase for the endorphin rush that ultra spicy things give people is extremely tempting for many. These are the spiciest varieties I’ve had the opportunity to sample as of my 3,950th review. Ready to burn? Let’s get to The Ramen Rater’s Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition.

#10: Paldo Volcano Curry Kkokkomyun – South Korea

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

Another dry noodle from South Korea by Paldo. This doesn’t feature the curry flavor I would have expected; it’s kind of like it’s own rendition of curry which didn’t honestly make me really think of curry all that much. But it’s spicy – that’s definitely not in question. Original review | Mukbang | Get it here

#9: Mamee SLRP! Mi Segera Perisa Kari Xtra Pedas – Malaysia

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

If you like curry and you like it hot, this will definitely do the trick. A strong, rich Malaysian curry shakes hands with a spicy bite that really will test your tastebuds and get you running for the water! Original review | Mukbang | Get it here

#8: Paldo Teumsae Ramen 9,413SHU Version – South Korea

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

I’ve ben trying to get this one for a very long time and the folks at Paldo finally sent me some – thanks! This one was very tasty and very hot, although I remember the first time I tried it many years ago and it blew my head off. These days it’s not too hot to handle for me, but it’s still plenty hot.

#7: GB Company The Devil Of Fire Ramen – South Korea

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

This one was sent in by The Fat Hipster from YouTube – thanks! While incredibly spicy, it’s definitely not the spiciest I’ve had, that’s for sure. But it’ll burn you really good. What’s more, it sports a good noodle and a nice flavor to it which is excellent. Original review | Mukbang | Get it here

#6: Liangchengmei 30S” Hot Bird Noodle – China

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

Thirty seconds to cook, featuring fresh noodles. This company is coming up with some really unique and delicious varieties which I thoroughly enjoy. This one is very reminiscent of another one on this list with a chicken. Original review | Mukbang

#5: Samyang Foods Buldak Bokkeummyeon – South Korea

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

While not the spiciest in their lineup, I find this to be the real baseline for the heatwave instant noodles have experienced in the past few years. This is the origination of the Fire Noodle Challenge – and it’s popular. I can get this at the local store even – and that’s really saying something to it’s popularity.

#4: Mamee Shinsegae Ghost Pepper Spicy Chicken – Malaysia

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

Not the first time Malaysia’s been on this list that’s for sure, but the spiciest offering by far. Black noodles – that’s all I’ve got to say. Ominous and lethal! Original review | Mukbang | Get it here

#3: Shinsegae Mamee Ghost Pepper Kari Lontong – Malaysia

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

Here we’ve got a Malaysian variety with a heat like no other. This is definitely the strongest curry on the market right now – at least that I can find. This was a seriously hard pack to scarf down – heat upon heat, upon heat! A beautiful broth and sensational flavor. Original review | Mukbang | Get it here

#2: Samyang Foods Buldak 3x Spicy HOT Chicken Flavor Ramen – South Korea

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

Every year, Buldak seems to get a little hotter. If this is 3x, that’s 13,200 SHU. This one was pretty tough to get down – but I did it. Nice flavor and very, very hot. If this is just out of your ballpark, I can highly recommend the tomato Buldak – that one’s far less spicy and absolutely delightful. Original review | Mukbang | Get it here

#1: Culley’s World’s Hottest Ramen – New Zealand

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten Spiciest Instant Noodles Of All Time 2022 Edition

This was hard. The only reason I was able to finish it was because of the size. I think that’s why many people have conquered this one. There are some issues with the directions on this one and I think they could be changed without effecting flavor/heat level. Basically, cook the noodles, drain, add in boiling water and sachets and stir. This was conquering the worm for me. I pounded it and then it pounded me. Eight hours of capsaicin cramping – oh so bad. Felt like an alien was going to pierce its way out of my stomach – no joke. Plus I went through a phase where I was tingling all over, slightly numb, and kind of cold. I either went into or teetered on the edge of being in shock – endorphin land to be sure. Original Review | Mukbang | Get it here

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!

The Ramen Rater Shop

The Ramen Rater's Top Ten American Instant Noodles OF All Time 2022 Edition

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.
