Sprinkle That Ramen Powder on French Fries, You Are Welcome

Trust me these ramen-flavored “Shake Shake” fries from Hong Kong are something really special.

The fries are a collaboration with Nissin—the Cup o’ Noodles/Top Ramen people—and they are exactly what they sound like: McDonald’s french fries seasoned with ramen powder. Rather than coat entire batches of fries with savory seasoning blend, the powder comes in a separate pouch, along with a bag for shaking to ensure the seasoning is evenly distributed (hence the name).

You can even match your frying oil to your seasoning. If, for instance, you are fan of cooking your fries in schmaltz, try the chicken flavor, or shake beef tallow fries some with the beef powder. Also, I don’t see why we have to stop at fries—why not ramen-ize all potatoes? Ramen-seasoned hash browns topped with a runny egg sound pretty good, as do ramen mashed potatoes.
