"Spicy Ramen has been a staple here in the Tower for as long as I can remember. Highlighting an incredible combination of flavors and spices, this is one of the best recipes the Golden Age has to offer. Not even the Red Legion could bring down these golden swimming in rich, flavourful broth."
— The Official Cookbook

Spicy Ramen Shop is a chain of restaurants found in the Last City. They specialise in making Japanese ramen dishes consisting of wheat-flour noodles served in a bowl of broth and various other ingredients and spices.

Overview[edit]

Spicy Ramen Shop with an image of Cayde-6

The shop was a personal favourite of Cayde-6 who regularly ate meals there and developed a friendship with a fellow customer named Jimmy.[1] Cayde once gave the Guardians a coupon to try out the Spicy Ramen, however the coupon expired decades ago.. Following the death of Cayde, the ramen shop by the Bazaar District celebrated the life of their favourite customer by displaying an image of him inside the shop.

The shop is also frequented by Amanda Holliday and when she once thought of Cayde, Zavala suggested they go out to eat as she deserved a break. Amanda quickly thought of ramen which brought a smile to the Commander as he also missed his presence.[2] Within the Vanguard vault is a secret Spicy Ramen vending machine belonging to Zavala.

As the House of Light integrated themselves within the Last City, one Eliksni ventured into a ramen shop and ordered a "spicy five star" ramen. Pleased by the meal, the Eliksni offered a small model of the Traveler as compensation, but the meal was given for free as the Eliksni was a new customer.[3] Ramen bowls and chopsticks can also be found within the Eliksni Quarter, suggesting that ramen has become a staple food among the Eliksni to consume.

Drunken Noodle Ramen Bar[edit]

Whilst Spicy Ramen is enjoyed by many citizens alike, the restaurant has competition called Drunken Noodle Ramen Bar. The establishment serves sake and often visited by Rehnpeir and his patrons.[4] As the Crow got ready to start a new life inside the Last City, he wondered what food he would eat as he was tired of everything tasting like gun oil and Ether. Osiris recommended that he tries Drunken Noodles and to order the "Long-Boy Special" as he personally found them delicious.[5]

Lore: Spicy Ramen Coupon[edit]

Spicy Ramen Coupons

Spicy Ramen. Large. 5 stars. Extra dumplings.

What can I say? A classy order for a classy Exo. I'll try to make time to explain why Spicy Ramen is the one and only ramen shop that you and yours will ever want to eat at.

First, the food. Those fresh golden noodles swimming in rich flavorful broth. Wouldn't surprise me if it was a Golden Age recipe. That combination of salt and the spice just—BAM!—hits you right in the mouth zone. And those pork dumplings? W-O-W! Don't get me started on those dumplings. Where did they even find the pork?

And how about that ambiance? There's the City. Love the City. And the people walking around. Who doesn't like people?

Cons? Heard folks say the Glimmer prices are a bit high. Look, I get it. Unlike yours truly, maybe you aren't sitting on a pile of Glimmer. If you need to scrape Glimmer together maybe we can work something out, I've got some caches that need to be found that are muy caliente… I'm getting sidetracked here. Look, if you know me, or know my chicken… well, maybe not the chicken, but if you know me—and trust me, I know me—you will love Spicy Ramen. Just tell them I sent you. Give them this coupon. I'm good for it.

Make sure you tell them that I sent you. Cayde-6. Sounds like spade but with a C. Capital C. +6. C-A-Y-D-E. Six (not seven).
