As with many instant noodle companies, Nongshim has plants all over the world. Usually, these factories produce flavors that are popular in the countries they are located in, as well as well known favorites. This one is a variety made in China and I found it up in Canada. It seems that many of the ones made in China are available up in Canada, although I’ve never seen them here in the USA – curious. Let’s have a look!
But first – I want to say thanks to my friend Matt B. for helping me transport my art from my old apartment to my new one the other day. Not only that, he gave me a jar of this Midori Farm Kimchhi – this stuff is extremely good. If you live in Washington State, seek it out – here’s their website. Anyways, Thanks again, Matt!

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added sukiyaki beef and Midori Farm kimchi. The noodles were a little less than expected, with very little chewiness and almost a slimy outside.

Lots of people have opinions on how to correctly serve ramyun – I’ve always liked this video – very simple and the music is ultra cheesy!
