Re-Review: Meet The Manufacturer: Nongshim Shin Ramyun Noodle Soup

It’s been a heck of a long time since I had one of these – over three years! Shin Ramyun is Nongshim’s most well known product – let’s see how it goes now, after trying over 600 varieties since I last tried it!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge.

Here’s the noodle block.

Here’s what makes Shin Ramyun spicy: the seasoning packet!

A lot of powdered seasoning. Had a little taste – yep – spicy!

Here’s the veggie packet.

Here’s a nice little cup of veggies.

Finished (click image to enlarge). I added some beef lunch meat, some onions, a veggie mix of snap peas, green bell pepper, Fresno peppers, water chestnut and broccoli, a slice of cheese, a shake of Ajishima Kimchi Furikake, and a little Tabasco Buffalo Style hot sauce. First, the noodles: they’re good – they soak up the flavor of the broth nicely and have a nice consistency. Not too firm, not too thin. Very good. The broth: tasty and spicy. I will say I don’t think it’s as hot as the Jinjja Jinjja, but it’s got quite a nice kick to it. The veggies weren’t bad, but more would have been nice. Basing my rating on just the noodles and broth, I give them 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. If I were to rate with everything I added, it would definitely be higher. Good bowl of noodles!

Where the United States would have the New Kids On The Block doing Pepsi commercials, ramyun’s popularity brings Beast to sing for Shin Ramyun

Here’s a very old Shin Ramyun commercial.
