#1780: Pulmuone Non-Fried Noodle Blackbean Sauce Noodle With Squid

It’s been almost 400 reviews since the last Pulmuone product I’ve reviewed. Found this one at a local South Korean grocery store and thought today would be a good day to try it. Seems like I’m finding less South Korean varieties to review as of late which really bums me out – Always been a big fan of South Korean instant ramyun. Well, this one is from Pulmuone, a company which shoots for the healthier mark with their products. The noodle aren’t fried, so I’m guessing they’re baked or air-dried. Let’s have a look at this one – with squid!

Here’s the back of the package (click image to enlarge). Contains squid and shrimp. To prepare, add noodles and vegetables sachet to 20 oz boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain, saving 2 oz water. Add in contents of sachets and stir. Heat an extra 10 seconds. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The main seasoning sachet.

A black bean sauce base.

The vegetables sachet.

Vegetables and squid.

A seasoned oil sachet.

Has a nice scent.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added carved squid, mung bean sprouts and spring onion. The noodles are thick and have a nice chew to them. Good thick ramyun gauge. The jjajang flavor is quite good – with the oil is coats everything. The extra 10 seconds at the end makes everything a little more cohesive. The supplied vegetable and squid came out very nicely. 4.5 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code 8801114126295.
