#714: Pulmuone Nature Is Delicious Non-Fried Ramyun Noodle (Spicy)

Here’s a rather uniquely titled one that the nice folks at Ramen Place sent along! I think I would rearrange the title right now to Is Nature Delicious? I guess that what we’re trying to find out with this review. Pulmuone seems to put out products that try to appeal to the health conscious. Let give it a try!

Click image to enlarge. I really like the ‘Why do I feel guilty after giving my husband ramyun? Can we enjoy ramyun without feeling guilty?’ caption. I will say right now I never feel guilty when I eat the noodles unless the particular variety has an odor that my wife doesn’t like. Other than that, nope – no guilt here.

Had a taste of this block as it was non-fried and it’s not bad – crunchy but not like uncooked spaghetti crunchy.

There’s nothing as wonderful as a bright red packet of Korean seasonings, no matter what company makes it. You immediately know the fire within will be coming out soon!

Yep this is that good spicy powder we all know and love.


Quite an array of veggies going on here – onion, carrot, red pepper and mushrooms.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Nature looks delicious! I added some roast beef, stir-fry veggies, an egg in the noodles as they cooked, a couple drops of Tabasco Buffalo Hot Sauce in the center of the broken yolk, some Ajishima Kim Chi furikake and a little bit of Jane’s Krazy Mixed Up Salt on the egg. So let’s dig in. The noodles are good – not very chewy but not low on character; they’re tasty and enjoyable. The broth has a strong spicy flavor. The veggies are all over the place and pretty tasty. I must say that 3 cups of water is a realistic amount to use as per the instructions – this is not a thin broth either. Good stuff – nature truly is delicious! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.

    Glad you specified “spicy.” I bought the mild. The Main difference – caption now says “Why does my Mom feel guilty….” I guess they make the mild version for the tender palates of kids. I say, let em have it. They sooner they can eat what I eat, the better. I’m adding sriracha to the ones I bought but I sure miss the spicy packet. I always bring green onion and cilantro to mix in but the flavor of the green onion in the veggie packet is really nice. Wonder if they are using leek at all. Anyway, next time I hit Super H I’ll be sure to check for that version. Thanks for a great review!

    I can’t read Korean and the packaging seems to have changed but on the back it says “thinking!” – it was really spicy! Love that it healthy by noodle standards!

    Whenever i make korean ramyun, i will add 2 tbsp of gochujang. Trust me, it makes a huge lot of difference. The gochujang makes the soup spicy with a hint of sweetness (due to the fermented rice) and thicken the soup as well. I see in your photos your soup is quite watery, maybe that’s the reason it can’t get over 4. Sometimes i add beef or fish balls but i wouldn’t bother them, the noodle and soup is enough! Only if you add gochujang!

    Thanks and good day.
