Netflix & Ramen Pairings: July
We’re quickly getting through July and we’ve been enjoying some amazing new (and old) series and movies added to Netflix this summer. Eating during a Netflix marathon is a must, and we’ve been loving cooking up some ramen for our all day couch marathons. We compiled a list of some of our favorite additions to Netflix this month & the flavors we’d pair with them!
Planning to try any of these pairings yourself? Make sure to show us on Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok! Let us know your favorite July Netflix additions and your go-to ramen flavor pairing for each one!
DOWN TO EARTH WITH ZAC EFRON
Starting with a brand new show that gives us a feeling of nostalgia. Zac Efron, quite possibly your biggest childhood crush depending on how old you are, hosts a new travel series with his friend and wellness expert, Darin Olien to explore healthy and sustainable alternatives to the way we live. It’s full of great questions, ideas, and just enough Zac Efron to make us ready for a High School Musical marathon.
Because it gives us a classic, nostalgic feel, we’re pairing this show with our chicken flavor ramen cup! Chicken broth that’s rich and full of flavor will remind you of a glowed-up version of your favorite chicken soup growing up. Eat your ramen right out of the cup or try our Mexican-inspired Chicken Ramen or Creamy Sriracha Ramen for a bulkier meal!
This new competition series is one for the foodies! Each episode features a competition among three culinary artists who are challenged to make delicious, out of the box creations. It’s definitely given us some inspiration, and it’s so fun to watch.
We’re pairing this show with our Vegetarian Kimchi ramen! One of our most unique & flavorful options, this ramen is vegetarian & vegan-friendly and packed with a subtle punch. Enjoy watching contestant’s unique creations come together while enjoying one of your own! Eat it by itself, with some a soft-boiled egg added, or try one of these full recipes for a explosion of Kimchi flavor:
A horror movie worth revisiting, this thriller still sends chills up our spines almost 15 years after its release. You might want to watch this one with a friend of family member if you get scared easily, but we love spending a couple hours on the edge of our seats in between our more light-hearted marathon picks.
We’re pairing Paranormal Activity with our Spicy Pork Tonkotsu ramen. Just like the movie brings you a full storyline with flashes of suspense, the flavor of this ramen has a subtle undertone with pops of spice that help bring out all the amazing flavors in the broth. That might be a bit of a reach, but you catch our drift 😉 Try our Spicy Pork Tonkotsu with a drizzle of sriracha if you want more spice, or try one of these spicy pork ramen bowls:
FLOOR IS LAVA
We’re kind of obsessed with the concept of this show. We all played the game as kids where we pretended the floor was lava and hopped around our living rooms trying not to touch the ground. Well, Netflix made it into a legit competition show and it had us rolling with laughter. The contestants give you a full show, literally pretending to sink into the “lava” when they fall in. It’s incredible.
This probably comes as no surprise but we’re pairing this show with our Spicy Beef cup! While it’s not hot enough to be considered “lava” you’ll feel like you’re fully immersed in the experience eating a cup of spicy beef ramen while you watch contestants work to avoid the “lava.” Pretend it’s actually spicy beef broth for extra laughs. Make your ramen cup feel like actual lava with your favorite hot sauce & some sliced jalapenos, or try some of our favorite spicy beef recipes:
Whether you’re kicking back for a weekend and catching up on the newest and most popular Netflix titles, or if you want to fit one of these in each day, these pairings are sure to have you feeling satisfied and entertained. Have your own favorite show/movie-ramen pairing? Send it to us on Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok! We’ll include it in our next roundup and give you a shout out.
