#1969: Nongshim Noodle Soup Seasoned With Real Kimchi

There are a few different iterations of this one – I reviewed one a long time ago and I think I liked it, and then they came out with a newly packaged version that I never ended up trying. Now in it’s (at least) third set of clothes, I think it’s definitely time for a new review. If you take a look at the package from the old review, you’ll notice the nutrition facts are indeed different – a definite mark of being a different recipe. Let’s dig in!

Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Contains beef. To prepare, add package contents to 500ml boiling water and cook 4-5 minutes. Stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

The soup base sachet.

Has that red color ramyun usually has with a tangy scent.

The vegetables sachet.

Looks like a little more kimchi than anything else in the mixture – the old one was more of a mix of things.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added beef for Korean BBQ, Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts, spring onion and egg. The noodles are just right – perfect thick and chewiness of ramyun. The broth has a nice spicy red ramyun hit and a nice piquantness from the myriad bits of kimchi in the mix. 4.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146181018.
