Re-Review: Nongshim Neoguri Udon Type Noodles Spicy Seafood Noodle Soup

So here’s a classic – Nongshim’s Neoguri. I haven’t had this in a few years so I suppose I’d better have some!

Seasoning powder on the left, veggies on the right.

Bright green veggies on the left, deep red powder on the right.

Boiling in the kettle.

The noodles got bigger and I would definitely consider them to be approaching udon size, but not as big as say Myojo’s Udon packs. The noodles are nice and chewy. I like the amount of vegetables too – lots of seaweed makes me happy with this bowl of noodles. I would’ve liked to have seen more seafood in the ingredients though; all I’m seeing is mussel. I do see sea tangle and seaweed which is a welcome sight though. I’m going to give this one 3.5 out of 5.0 stars. It’s pretty good but I feel left wanting something more. Get it here.

Here’s a commercial for Neoguri. As it turns out, neoguri is Korean for raccoon.

So here’s a weird music video. Enjoy the vids – this stuff uses 19 1/2 ounces of water so it’s a lot to eat!
