Okay so what’s Hot Chacharoni? Well, its a form of jjajangmyeon. What’s jjajangmyeon? Wheat noodles with a black bean sauce! Pretty much every South Korean instant noodle company has their own take on the popular dish, but this is the only one that I’m aware of that is spicy! Let’s check it out.
Here’s the back of the packaging.
The noodle block.
The liquid packet.
This is the black bean sauce. Has a rich and hearty kind of scent.
The solid ingredient packet.
Bits of vegetable and possibly textured vegetable protein.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sauteed rib eye beef with Worcestershire and minced garlic, carrots, green bell pepper, sweet onion and broccoli. The noodles are great – good chew. The black bean sauce is definitely spicy. I like how there’s a decent amount of the sauce too. The added veg and bits from the packet are nice as well. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars.
