Re-Review: Samyang Beef Flavor Ramen Noodle Soup

So I think I reviewed this in maybe 2003, so it’s been a long time and I thought it might be time for another take on it. From the sheer amount of commercials I’ve come across on YouTube for this stuff, I think that this is Samyang’s premiere product in Korea; although I could be totally wrong…

Red packet is soup base, green is veggies. Nice and colorful packets!

Colorful contents as well!

The noodles were of good character – chewy but not like the last review I did where the chewiness was excessive. The broth was very tasty – a little spicy but not overboard and the veg was perfect. Then the egg ties it all together. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars – very nice stuff. Get it here.

So it looks like this group of women is called “Girls Generation” and they are in every single Samyang commercial I’ve seen so far. I think they’re like the Spice Girls or something.
