A YouTuber by the name of Hikariの動画保管庫 shares their delicious Destiny 2 inspired spicy ramen recipe with the gaming community to follow along with and bear witness to the symbolic dish.
Spicy Ramen has always been a symbolic dish for the Destiny 2 community, known to be loved by Cayde-6 after a passing remark in the ‘Last Call’ teaser trailer for Destiny 2; it holds a reminiscent reminder of times passed. The dish was then quickly adored by the community and holds a lot of weight within the game world itself, as could be seen by the spicy ramen quest and the surrounding unfortunate emblem controversy which occurred earlier in the year.
The community’s love of the dish remains steadfast, however, and a prime example of this is shown by Hikari who showcases to us a delectable recipe for the meal. Having recently been featured in the Bungie weekly news round-up as one of the ‘movies of the week’, a large congratulations are in order for Hikari!
The meal itself consists of two main parts, the ramen soup itself, and the following spicy chicken counterpart being a precursor to the equally delicious extras such as a ramen egg and Shiraga Negi. The presentation of the meal is undeniably gorgeous and this only adds to the enjoyable nature of cooking this traditional delicacy.
Influence of cooking in gaming
Hikari isn’t the only one taking inspiration from games to create delightful meals from various games. Genshin Impact is an example where many members of the community and cooks shared their own recipes for creating the renowned staple food.
Fans of The Elder Scrolls series on the other hand are treated to cookbooks galore of how to make the finest dishes from the series and enjoy the scrumptious aftertaste of each one. Needless to say, the sheer amount of entrancing cookbooks now available for various game franchises highlights the diverse nature of the games industry and how one passion for the community may lead to many other pursuits for enjoyment at the same time from their most favored games. Taking World of Warcraft as another example, the official set of cookbooks by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel has made strides within the industry finding an immense appreciation found from cooking enthused players.
Hikari’s style of video creation for cooking dishes such as Spicy Ramen makes cooking meals based on games vastly more accessible for the wider gaming audience. This is similar to other video creators who focus on like-minded cooking videos.
