Here it is! This is the Chapagetti Bowl Noodle from Nongshim America. Pretty cool – got to sample this during my trip to Nongshim
America in May – even got to see them made. Let’s have a look at this new product!
Here’s the info from the bottom of the package (click to enlarge).
Here’s the lid (click to enlarge).
The noodle block. The noodles are definitely wider than usual!
Only one seasoning packet.
A dark, grainy powder.
Under the noodle block there are some tasty bits and pieces – onion, carrot and TVP.
Finished (click image to enlarge). I decided to break in another one of the nice new bowls that I received from the President of Nongshim Holdings, Mr. Shin – thanks again! The noodles are wide and chewy, but not too chewy. I like how they were in the bowl very much; the texture was spot on. The Chajang sauce is perfect – its really amazing how identical in flavor and quality the microwave version is to the package version. I also thought it was really cool while it cooked – As you can see from the directions above, you take the lid completely off. Well, I looked through the window of my trusty microwave and it looked like it was boiling and just at the right spot – no chance of overflowing. Really fascinating. All in all, quite awesome. The flavors meld together and create a nice hearty meal that is quick to prepare and tasty. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars – best bowl noodle I’ve had in eons! UPC bar code 031146016747 .
