#618: Pulmuone Cold Noodle By Dad

Happy New Year! Let’s start things off a little different with some cold noodles – or should I say cold noodle Regardless, in the past I haven’t been a great fan of cold noodles, but hey, new year, new noodle. Let’s give it a try.

The package back (click image to enlarge). Notice the zero fat in this one. Almost 3 grams of sodium though – 114% of RDA! Wow, starting things off with a massive coronary here. Don’t think I’ll eat all of this one.

So inside is a tray which contains four packets. First, here’s the packet of noodles. These are fresh and have wheat, buckwheat, black rice and acorn flour in them! Surprisingly, no fiber in this pack of noodles; acorn flour just sounds a little skritchy.

Now we have the flavorings. Top left is the spicy sauce and lower left is the cold noodle broth. To the right is the veggie packet.

Finished (click image to enlarge). The noodles themselves aren’t bad. The broth has an interesting flavor. The thing I didn’t think I’d like was that it was served cold. I tried it warm and it wasn’t bad and then let it get cold and still, not too bad. The flavor and texture altogether isn’t really my cup of tea. I think I’ll have something else for breakfast. Gotta give this one a 2.75 out of 5.0 – unique and interesting but just not that wonderful.
