MORE DETAILS:
Introducing the “Honisuki” knife, a 6” blade wrought in Japanese VG10 steel and hardened in dragonflame to 61HRC. A fusion of tradition and innovation, Tim wanted to design something made that spoke to the Chinese heritage that Onigiri and Tim both shared, but still had the lines and design language of Japanese knives that are so treasured in the professional kitchen.

Utilizing a unique blackened blade, the surface is finished with a mystical Wu Zhi Mountain stonewash and finished with a tapered, octagonal Japanese “Wa” shaped handle, with swirls of purple and gold resin representing the colors of Onigiri and the Onimakase Maelstrom. Each handle is completely unique, and no two will be the same.
Honisuki orders placed after February 27, 2024 will be in Wave 2 and will ship at the end of June

THE STORY OF THE LEGENDARY HONISUKI KNIFE

We’ve Helped Over 100,000 People Change Their Healthy Eating Forever

"I wanted to say thank you for making some of the best and most delicious ramen I've ever had in my life! I love the fact that it's high protein too.


Ramen was my absolute favorite food as a kid and pretty much the only thing I would eat! I'm glad that there is now a healthier ramen available.


I love what you do and am inspired by your story of persevering despite

the odds."

- Donald Wolf

"I am absolutely obsessed and addicted to your noodles. I literally have to ration out my noodles or else I’d eat them all in like a week.


I love that even opening all the packets is EASY! Everything opens up so easy!! No uneven tears, no mess. I know it sounds trivial and maybe even silly lol but it’s true and I totally appreciate that! And I love that everything is recyclable.


I LOVE YOU VITE RAMEN!!

That is all, thank you 😊"

- Lisa Albrecht

Top Questions, Our First-Time Customers Ask

How is Vite Ramen priced?

We're totally aware that our ramen is higher priced than "normal ramen", but for good reason.  It's well known in the food world that the cheaper your product is, the better your sales will be. Unfortunately, fighting for the bottom dollar often means that the employees who make the food pay the cost: minimum wage, poor working hours and no consideration for mental health or overall/general employee well-being.


Being from a culinary background, we’re intimately familiar with the kind of exploitation that workers can be subject to, and the kind of poverty people can experience even while working twelve hour days. The first step to combating this kind of exploitation is to set up business models that incorporate the negative externalities directly into the price, rather than perpetuate the unsustainable business models that currently exist.


We're putting our money where our mouth is and paying all of our employees a living wage no matter what position they work, giving healthy amounts of PTO and with no questions asked days off for mental health. It's extremely important to us that our employees are treated fairly and that our ramen isn't made at the expense of the people who make it.

Would we be able to make the product cheaper through outsourcing and sell more by decreasing the cost? Yeah, absolutely! But we're not about that. We're not in this to make the biggest profit (in fact, our profit margins are so low we can't afford to sell in supermarkets, which should give you an idea). Factor in the material costs for all the things like quinoa and protein for a healthier ramen and being made in the USA and that's how we set our costs.

In the end, we just want to make the best ramen possible, have an excuse to eat ramen every day, and be proud of what we're doing and the employees who make it happen. And when it comes down to it, each of our meals is still less than the cost of a fast food meal! :)

How are shipping costs calculated?

The reality of shipping is that shipping companies give us a cost, and that’s what shows up on our website; we don’t make a single dollar off of it. We unfortunately have no control over it, and being a small business, we have no negotiating power in asking them to lower it.

Also, our ramen is just way, way bigger than the small packets you might see on the supermarket shelves. It’s designed as a complete meal, so it’s larger and heftier than many people might first think!

We’re constantly looking for better solutions, and do our best to help make shipping easier however we can: we offer free rewards for returning customers, and due to how dimensional weight works, the cost of shipping more packets is only a couple dollars more than a basic 9 pack! If you're a fan of our ramen, ordering more at once is the most cost effective shipping rate!

International orders please note that the price shown covers ALL country entry fees, including duties, shipping, customs, and other fees. We do not set these fees and do not receive any of them, as a third party handles all of this for us, and customs and duty fees are set by the respective governments. We understand these prices are steep, but as of now, this is our only way as a small business to legally ship our product through international borders.

Why do you add MSG?

MSG is an unfairly demonized ingredient! There's some very interesting history to why it became looked down on, and it's not because of scientific evidence! Check out our blog post about the subject to see why we deliberately included MSG.

Is Vite Ramen vegan/halal/gluten free/low carb?

Our Naked Noods, Nanoboost, Vegan White Miso, and Vegan Sichuan Chili Edition are 100% vegan and, to the best of our understanding, halal, while the Chicken, Pork, and Beef are not. However, it should also be noted that they are not certified halal/kosher. Our noodles are also not gluten free or low carb, though it is often requested that we attempt to make gluten free or low carb noodles, we do not have the manufacturing capabilities need to create this kind of product at this time.

Is Vite Ramen organic?

No, Vite Ramen is not organic.
