Well this one looks to be extremely spicy. Samyang Foods sent some instructions along as everything on the back of these packages are in Korean. Well, they also added a little advice:
If it is too spicy for you to finish, you’d better add a soft-fried egg, vegetables or some chicken My fingers are crossed for you!
Wow – I think I’ve got my work cut out for me on this one! Spicy chicken stir noodles… Let’s do it!
The back of the package (click to enlarge). Notice the little grumpy chicken talking about SHU. SHU are Scoville Heat Units, a way to rate the degree of spiciness. The scornful fowl is warning us about this being 4,404 SHU. I’ve found a variety in the past that has 5,930 SHU – that was really hot! Curious how I’ll do with this one…
The noodle block.
The liquid packet.
Oh dude. It kind of looks like fire with smoke coming up from it, doesn’t it? Gave a taste with a toothpick – it’s tasty and then super hot! Being a stir noodle, this will be undiluted by water.
A black and white packet. Hot pepper flake, perhaps?
Looks like some seaweed and sesame seeds.
Finished (click image to enlarge). Added baked chicken seasoned with adobo and Cavender’s Greek seasoning, sweet onion, fried egg and green onions. As I always do in my reviews, I sampled the product before adding all my own garnishes. The noodles are thick and chewy. The flavoring is pretty good – extreme spiciness! Has a nice kind of fried chicken taste. The sesame and seaweed ass a nice little finish. If you don’t like spicy foods, stay away! If you do, this will satisfy! Eyes watering and nose running! 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 8801073110502.
