We're not kidding—here are ingredients you can add to make your bowl of noodles next level!

- Bacon bits and a hard-boiled egg
Pack on the flavor and texture of your instant cup noodles by adding chopped fried bacon and a hard-boiled egg.
- Chili oil
Add a kick to your broth by adding a drop or two of chili oil! This way, you can adjust the level of spiciness according to your tolerance.
- Crab meat, fish balls, and squid balls
Hack your seafood-flavored cup noodles by adding in some crab meat, fish balls, and squid balls!
- Grated cheese
Sprinkle grated cheese (the faster it melts, the better) on top of your instant cup noodles to make the soup creamier.
Because butter makes everything better (repeat 10 times).
- Ginger, garlic, and onions
These ingredients will make the flavor of your broth richer, and the aroma just pure heaven.
